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
  4. Ancestor #: A040097, - Wentle Fockler.
