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.....
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.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

Good work. Have you considered looking at Jean Jane "Marilyn" Ewing as the mother of Thomas Jone Hankins? There are numerous references in other family trees that suggest she if the mother.

Thanks for the information. FindAGrave is not always a reliable source, especially for people born in the 1600's. There is no similar requirement for original sources on FIndAGrave.
