A third-generation Washingtonian, I grew up in northern Virginia. My great-grandfather, Lewis Cass White a Civil War veteran, moved to Washington after the war to work for what was then called the Pension Bureau (now Veterans' Affairs). He married Susannah Yount, a Pennsylvania German. My grandmother, Sadie White and mother, Florence Evans were both born in Washington, D.C. Her father William Evans grew up on a farm in western New York, the grandson of recent Welsh immigrants and descendant of English immigrants who arrived about 1640. My father, Joe Parks [1] was from Oklahoma, the son of James A T Parks a Cherokee Methodist minister and Florence Youngblood a woman from Mississippi who went to Oklahoma to teach Indians in 1913. I graduated from the University of New Hampshire married Kerry Forbes [2] and ended up living in New Hampshire and working at the University of New Hampshire for almost 50 years. I have three children and six grandchildren. After retirement I returned to northern Virginia. I am a citizen of Cherokee Nation and have been studying Cherokee history and working with Cherokee genealogy for over 35 years.

Most of my European ancestors immigrated to America in the 1600's and early 1700's from the British Isles, mostly Scotland/Northern Ireland and Wales. My genealogical goal is to trace each line back to the immigrant ancestor.

re: Rucker-1599 Thank you again. With the information from you I was able to find another record confirming. It is still a guess which one of James Rucker's children is the father of Dewitt at least there is more info on him.

I can help you with your "Youngblood" ancestors; which you are seeking. It just so happens, this is one of my Sons ancestors as well (Through their Father). Thomas Youngblood abt 1679-1722 married Mary Miles abt 1687-1737. His Father is Abraham Jongbloedt (Youngblood) Jr. abt 1635–1681 & His Mother is Marijke Maria Barnarts (Barnards/Bernards/Barents) abt 1635-1681.

I hope this helps... - Terry

ok then can you please look at this VANN comparison and adjust for the correct wives. Terrapin here is married to 2 different John Vanns. Thanks


posted by N Gauthier
All these men named John Vann are confusing. There is currently a merge request for Vann-535 and Vann-151.

Could you please check it because if it is supposed to be for the "Oowana" guy, then it would be Vann-550 and Vann-151 that should be merged. Thanks

Can you please check if this Mary Terrapin and Mary Hughes-16740 are attached to the right VANN husbands ? Or if the husbands should be merged ? Thanks so much for your help :)

Thanks for trying to help with the VANNs :) We may not get much of a response because it looks like many are busy with the source-a-thon.

Hello cousin. Apparently we are one generation apart on our common lineage.

Thank you for your assistance with the Native American's I am working on. I may need further help down the line as some of the family's have members with more than 4 or 5 names in the last name, but I will see first if the whole family carries the name or just one person.

My apologies. Let me know if you want me to merge profiles or anything like that.

Re: John Owens

Thanks for pointing out my error, Kathie. I got John Sr. and John Jr. mixed up a bit.
