Alexandra (Kissinger) Florimonte: I am pretty new at this, although my son has been keeping our Family Tree on one of the big ancestry sites for years.
I am looking for information about my Huguenot ancestor, George Frederick deSanno, of Pennsylvania. I am trying to prove or disprove the family tradition which says he arrived as an aide to Lafayette in 1777, in "La Victoire" from Spain.
I am also looking for other paternal ancestor dead-ends, from PA, which includes the families of HUNTER and HUSTON (Houston) from County Tyrone, who settled in early 1800s in PA. Earliest I have are John and Mary Hunter, probably from near Strabane, Donagheady parish. Emigrated 1811. Many Hunters ended up in the Lock Haven, PA area, and in Allegheny County.
Associated names: Bailey, McCafferty, Bressler, Calderwood, Crispen, Stover, Huey. A recent discovery I made moved this family from Donaghadee in County Down, to County Tyrone!
We are now thinking that perhaps there were earlier Hunter and Huston relatives who came to America, and provided the impetus for John and Mary to come along later in 1811. But, how to find and connect them? John Hunter's younger sister Violet came from Ireland later on and stayed in New York for 4 months before she went to stay with an "Uncle Huston" - who was this mysterious Uncle Huston? A brother to her mother, Mary Huston?

(Or, perhaps Huston was his first name; we know that John Hunter named his son Samuel Huston Hunter, who named HIS son Samuel Huston Hunter, Jr. and both of them used "Huston" as their preferred name, rather than Samuel.)

Also looking for ancestors of Solomon PALMER, father of Floyd and Budd, who were counted in the 1790 census of Potter, Centre County, PA, but who may have been born in New York.
Also looking for antecedents of Mary E THOMAS, who married (Samuel) Huston Hunter around 1833. She was born in 1815 in PA. Lifelong Methodist, not Catholic. Were they part of the Huguenots who were shuttled around from place to place before they emigrated?
Also looking for ancestors of Samuel K. BOYER, SR (b. 1809, died in 1871 in Newport, Perry Co., PA), who married Margaretta Sanno of Carlisle, PA in 1842.
Final Paternal Line brick walls: Adam Absalom SWILER who married Charlotte or Scharlet YODER (Coder) both of Juniata County, PA around 1830s. Their daughter, Sarah Catherine Swiler (b. 1843) married Samuel K. Boyer, Jr. in Dec 1865 in Newport, Perry Co. PA.
On the Maternal side, I am looking for Ukrainian records. The family comes from what was once Ukraine (or, rather, the Austrian-Hungarian Empire).
My grandfather Anthony SYROID, b. 1889 (Anmire Cypoig in Cyrillic), whose father was Michael Syroid, mother Katherine Dupilka) from the village of Lodiwa (Łodyna), north of Ustrzyki Dolne, Galicia, Poland.
My grandmother was Rozalia HUMELYCH/Humetycz, b. 1897, daughter of Fedio Humetycz and Kuska Kluse. Rose had at least 3 sisters, Madeline, Victoria and Josephine, one of whom married and went to Paris, from which place she sent a postcard.
Anthony came on the ship "Blucher" arriving Ellis Island 28 Oct 1906, from Hamburg, Germany. Rose came on the "President Lincoln" in 1912.
The Syroid family settled in Akron, Ohio, although when they first arrived in America, they went to Pittsburgh, PA, where there was a thriving Ukrainian community. They were Ukrainian Catholic.

Would love any information anyone can offer!

Hi, Alexandra!

Thank you for your participation in October 2020’s Source-a-thon. Your contributions helped us to clear over 57,000 profiles that needed sourcing. This makes our Shared Tree all that much better.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks for all your work on WikiTree. I noticed that you many profilen for pre-1700 persons that indicate no primary sources. There have recently been some updates to the Pre-1700 Profile help page and the Pre-1700 Quiz since you took it. Please review both and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. You will notice that the wording has been modified to more fully explain the sourcing required when creating pre-1700 profiles. We're looking for reliable sources to add to the various lists. Please add whatever sources you have for those profiles.

Hey Alexandra I think I got the Thomas and Chrisman families straightened out. It's clear whoever made the Findagrave profiles got the facts tangled, hopefully they will fix the mothers.

Thank you, Heather! I have written to Ms Cooney with a link to the newly updated profiles.

As this isn't my family, I am going to relinquish the profile; do you want to take it over for the Quaker project?

I’m not a decision maker in the Quaker project, so not sure whether they would take over management. Lots of parents and siblings in both sides in those Exeter MM records so maybe a connecter would take it on?

If they don’t want it, I would probably orphan the profiles and perhaps a descendant will join at some point and take them on. Best of luck!

Make a research section and list it there as a possible.

Alexandra, By all means, continue sourcing. You don't have to wait till the source-a-thon to add sources to the profiles. There are the monthly sourcing challenges and the Saturday Sourcing Sprints as well. Again all just for fun, (no prizes for these), but continuing to help the Wikitree goal. Thanks for all your help.
