are my 23rd great grandfathers, but, alas, through a Questionable Gateway Ancestor


I was born and raised in California. My parents both came from Ohio, my father's family brought him to California when he was 3 and my mother moved to California as a young career woman during World War II. My interest in genealogy started with some family dead ends and lots of rumors. Most of the rumors were great leads, but untrue. And the dead end is in the Becker family (my mother's family). We can go back to her great grandfather John J. Becker.... he was killed in an accident when his son, John Frederick (her grandfather) was 2 and the mother, Mary, either died shortly before or after along with another son, George. I found a beautiful grave marker with all the names and dates. None of this information was ever passed along in the family, so we have no idea where John Frederick grew up, nor where his parents came from, original dead end is still the one have not been able to break through. I hope with my work in Wikitree, I will eventually find my answers.

Then there are my Patriots...Isaac Lee is my NSDAR Patriot Ancestor. My next challenges are proving my connections to:

  1. Ancestor #: A111729- Van Swearingen
  2. Ancestor #: A024956-Joseph Conger
  3. Ancestor #: A100868-John Adam Schlott

Hi! Your ancestor Issac Lee married my ancestor Mary Boone! I am a descendant of their daughter Abigail Lee, who became Abigail Cherrington. This is a phenomenal tree that you have put all of this work into, I would love to speak with you sometime! I had no idea that I was in the Lincoln bloodline! :) I see your research hit a dead end with my ancestor Sarah (Lee) Cherrington. She married into the Chalfont family, had a daughter Hannah Chalfont who married into the Smith family, and had a son Asher W. Smith who is my g-g grandfather who fought in the civil war for OH. I can help you if you need more information to continue the tree. I have taken the ancestry DNA but not GED. Please feel free to contact me! Keep up the great work!

Shalhoub-3: No, it looks like you had the correct spelling. I checked the IMDb page and the Wikipedia page - and then I checked the source for the spelling on the Wikipedia page and found it listed as Shalhoub in the source.

Cheers. DK

As far as Griffith-2398 I have two different sources and both are sketchy. There are many faults in Find a grave and my other source is a long since passed family historian. This is something that needs to be researched but right now I do not have time. If you can find out send me a message and I will correct the last name.

RE Rice-358. I see what you mean about the two sons. If you will notice Thomas Ap Ryce and Thomas Rice, are listed as his children. If the mothers were different, possible not probable that these are two different people.

My apologies. I assumed that the first available suggestion was correct. Caanan, Ohio doesn't at first appear to be a valid placename. When I changed it to Canaan, Ohio, the first suggestion was for Canaan, Wayne, Ohio. I had to manually add Athens before Canaan Township, Athens, Ohio, United States came up. Something to look into.

Thank you Robin. Without your help, I never would have known that Zachariah Conger had three wives, Lucy Jackson, Mary Edwards, and Parmelia Davenport Parks

Thank you Robin for the help you have given me. I am also a member of I get stumped and you have helped. The person I am most interested in is Zachariah M. Conger, 1829-1901, His nickname was Penkney. The last I can I know he was living in Linte River, Milton County, Georgia. Milton is no longer a county. it was split between Cobb County, Cherokee County, and North Fulton, Georgia. I can't find anything else.

Hi Robin,

Thank you for the guidance that you provide. Sourcing the PPP Barnes-1145 will be done on G2G beginning after the Barnes Reunion on May 20. I have revised my bio for that and mention you. If you would prefer that I remove it, please advise.
