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.

Thanks for your comments. As you know , I am relatively new at this but learnig fast. I misunderstood initially what was meant by sources - so I have been putting in just my name. I did not realize that you were asking for published references. I am doing it now, a number of them, are, in fact, my own publications.

With my work on linking President George W. Bush with his Demuth ancestors from Moravia, wouldn't that qualify one for the badge Project Member - Presidents? I have lots of info on other Presidents, as well. However, if there is no interest, I can focus again on my own ancestors.

Speaking about the badges, I am puzzled that I received only one Club 100 badge, even though I made 505 contributions. I am also purplexed about your merging process.

Hi Robin. Absolutely re: the profile "Reuter, Lassila-1". I too noticed it had numerous issues (starting with its LNAB) and that's why I adopted it to work on. Thanks for the edits you made as well.

Thanks for the note about duplicates; unfortunately, if WikiTree doesn't offer any suggestions when we create or search for a person, then duplicates will happen. The suggestion function, I find, often doesn't work.

Hi Robin, saw your comment in the biography of Dunning-173. I cannot find a Dorothy, daughter of William on Wikitree. If you can provide a date of birth for Dorothy, I will add her as the mother.
