I became interested in genealogy in the middle 1980s going through my parents' papers.
I have no truly famous American ancestors, but a couple of interesting immigrant ancestors with very long ancestor trails: Rev. Robert Rose of Virginia and William Ironmonger. One of my very few New England ancestors was William Freeborn, one of the founders of Rhode Island.
Wikitree itself also lists a long ancestor trail for my ancestor Frances Latham but while her father is quite secure, her earlier ancestry has numerous rather iffy connections, the most dubious of which I have documented on their pages.
Some of my ancestors arrived in America before the tardy folks on the Mayflower:

I was very excited to see that you are another COATE descendant who has had their autosomal DNA tested. Do you have a GEDmatch ID so we can compare results?

Will you go to privacy and click it to make it manager? I would appreciate it. In the other history of the family, I notice he added profiles, thus you might need to check them.
PS to the left is William Cox (one of your ancestors.) (also mine) Have you considered joining the Jamestown Colony subproject of US Southern Colonists project. ... ~mary

I have Robert Maule in my family tree. His mother-in- law, Janet Ogston ( my gt x 13 grandmother) . He died at Panmure not in England. Following is what I have for his biography but there is a lot more including physical appearance and temprement in the Registrum. Robert could not read but was a great horseman, delighted in hawking & hunting and loved football. He made a football pitch on the Muir of Bathil. Played golf at Barry Links. He was Sheriff-depute at Retour of James Ogilvy of Cookston in 1522. Was wounded in 1527 by James at Barry during a poynd. In 1548 he was wounded by a culverin when taken by the English and held by them in the fort at Broughty. From there he was taken by ship to London and held for a year In the Tower. After release he returned to Panmure. He was expert in genealogies. He took ill after the death of his second wife, Isabel Arbuthnot and died two years later in the 63rd year of his life. He was latterly a confirmed and strong supporter of the Reformed Church of Scotland.
These facts were recorded with more detail by his grandson Robert maule, Commissary of St Andrews. Source: Registrum de Panmure

I managed to reduce the number of sons named Thomas substantially. More work still to do on the others.
