I have been doing my family research for over 40 years, both the old fashioned way and on the computer through Ancestry.com. I have 5 branches to my tree which encompass about 3500 individuals. I have traced my family to the "Mayflower" and beyond and to the era of "William the Conquerer" ..... I am now 82 years of age and I am very much interested in adding my family to the "WORLD TREE". LORD willing I hope I will be able to complete the task.....


  • First-hand information. Entered by Evelyn Murray McKelvey at registration.

The entire WEIR/HIBBARD & MURRAY/GRAY family tree was compiled on ANCESTRY.COM from my Family Records, LDS Family Search, Federal Census Reports, Naturalization Papers and Property Deeds, Immigration Reports and the "Genealogy of the Hibbard Family written by Augustine George Hibbard in 1901" ; as well as information received from The Cumbria Family History Society and the Bishop's Transcripts of Cumbria, England.

I plan to edit each profile with source info as time permits upon completion of GEDCOM submissions. Lord willing!

UPDATE: Well it is Sept. 27, 2016 and my editing has begun .... I am writing this just to see how long it might take ....... or I will forget when I started. It's now February, 2018 and I am still editing, I am now 83. BACK TO WORK!

NOTE; I am an 8TH Cousin 1 x removed to Lady Diana Spencer Windsor........ Our 7th Great Grandfathers were brothers. This makes me a 9th Cousin 1 x removed from the future King of England, HRH William Windsor. I received a correction on this relationship calculation from Gilly Wood on 1/21/17. Thank you, Gilly.

My grandmother, my Father's mother, a beautiful lady, quiet and serene .......Name was changed from DAVIES at immigration.
A branch of the Murray Tree - mostly medical people - started at the NEW JERSEY SHORE & NEW SWEDEN COLONY & QUAKERS
My 2nd Great Grandmother's Family - with the most amazing history. - MAYFLOWER DESCENDANTS. ALSO, 8TH COUSIN TO LADY DIANA SPENCER.
My Mother's Mother, started with Kreider and changed to Kreater. A really beautiful lady who had an enormous impact on my life.
I am interested to see where this may lead me.
My MAYFLOWER connection comes through my 5th Great grandmother, Martha Durkee (1705). She married John Hibbard (1704). She appears in the "Mayflower Births & Deaths" listings.
My late Husband's Family - another amazing history. - PENNSYLVANIA TRAILBLAZERS connected to the BYERLY FAMILY.
My Father's Family - late comers to America. - STONE MASONS, built Churches in Pittsburgh, PA.
My HANKINS branch were QUAKERS, they married into the STEELMAN branch from NEW SWEDEN.
Thanks to the RELATIONSHIP FINDER, I have learned that I have a direct bloodline relationship to 15 of our 45 Presidents; all through my HIBBARD CONNECTION and I am more than grateful for that information.
At least 3 of my tree branches began with the quaker migration to America. HANKINS & MASTERS & WELLS
My Mother's Family - connected to the Hibbard's - MIGRATED TO CANDA & MASSACHUETTS COLONY & then W. Pennsylvania & W. VA....
I am interested in seeing these errors wiped out!

Hi Evelyn, I have a Murray line too but to MD early (1680). Also a Long line but not the southern group I suggested a merge for. I wadn't exactly sure which Richard should be merged with which, and hoped that since it was your profile you would fill in the blanks as well as the merge. Could you take another look? Thanks so much.

Evelyn, if you noticed on the note I wrote for Hankins-1069 as reason for the merge, I entered the name and Dates and then accidentally created the new profile. It is our Thomas John Hankins born 1700 Burlington NJ d1748. There is now way to delete the accidental profile and the information I entered is the same for Hankins-115.

Thanks Evelyn, I think you are correct on the merge.

While most of my ancestors listed were from my maternal side, the Lawrence and McNeal grandfathers were from my father's mother's family. Her maiden name was Lawrence and her mother was a McNeal.

Good Morning Evelyn. Here are the three grandfathers who served in the Union Army. Joseph A. Lawrence, Co. G, 88th Ohio Infantry, John W. McNeal, C. E, 82nd Ohio Infantry, and Samuel G. Mohney, Co. C, 78th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. In addition, I have eight grandfathers listed by the DAR as Patriots. George Daubenspeck, John Jacob Daubenspeck, Patrick Keran (Kerns), Adam Johann Mohney, Johann Christian Schlegel, Christian Schick Sr, and Christian Schick Jr. I have also found Rufus Lawrence as listed with Spaldings Independent Company (Conn) and he was at the battles of Brandywine and Germantown.

Hi Evelyn! I noticed you have some Beckwith profiles that aren't connected to anyone. I'm guessing maybe this was an issue with a GEDCOM import. Can you please take a look and see if a connection that you intended to include got dropped by accident? The profiles are Beckwith-1119, 1120, and 1121. Thanks!

Hi Evelyn, Thank you for the note and question!

You asked me; "long list of sources on this Profile. Marriage, burial and census info. What else should I be doing?

Could you send me the URL / web address for the profile or the complete name of the persons profile your wanting me to check?

If you are researching the Wells/Herman family then the Zelma Price Wells Book may be of great interest to you. There is 2 whole volumes dedicated to the Wells family. You can download it for free on FamilySearch.org It is called "OF WHOM I CAME; FROM WHENCE I CAME WELLS-WISE, RISH-WISE AND OTHERWISE". Some research is now been corrected just from all the new ways to get info, but it has so much useful info.
