Biography

I have been interested in genealogy since childhood because my grandparents, great-aunts and great-uncles were wonderful family storytellers. The problem was that I didn't know which stories were true, and which were either family legends or bedtime stories never intended to be taken as actual family history.

I became more serious about genealogy from 2006 to 2007, but gave it up after coming across so many wacky online family trees. In 2013, my brother asked a question about Henry Frank Smith, our great-great-grandfather. A quick Google search showed that there were now multitudes of free internet resources, including newspaper images, cemetery records, passenger lists, and some vital records going back to the 1600s. I caught the genealogy bug again.

I discovered WikiTree in September 2013, and have been using it extensively. I'm volunteering as a Greeter/Mentor, and an Arborist, focusing on merging and cleaning up Puritan Great Migration profiles.


Relatives (I know of) who are active on WikiTree

Followed Tags
Carole is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
ANNOUNCEMENTS
Following this tag may decrease how often I embarrass myself.
ARBORISTS
Arborists propose merges and clean up messy profiles. If you're patient and detail-oriented, this job's for you!
BEDELL
I'm trying to distinguish between 2 or 3 Daniel Bedells to identify my third great-grandfather. He was born about 1800 in Dutchess County, New York, and moved to Rensselaer County as a child or young adult.
BOYER
I'm hoping to learn something about my 4th ggm, Jane Boyer of St. George's, Bermuda. She was born in 1782, and married Henshall Stubbs on Grand Turk Island in 1803.
CREWS
My maternal grandmother was Nora Gertrude Crews. Her extended family moved from Perry County, Alabama, to Smith County, Texas, in 1879.
CRONE
My maternal great-grandmother was Laura Jane Crone. Her grandfather, Cyrus Scott Crone, moved from Ohio to Smith County, Texas, in the mid to late 1800s.
FRISBIE
Cynthia Frisbie was my 3rd ggm. She was born about 1818 in Mississippi and came to Texas. She married William Sturrock of Angus, Scotland.
GREETERS
I'm a Co-Leader of the Greeters Project... Hi!
HAKES
My husband's surname. His family came from Broome County, New York. Although the word hake can refer to a kind of fish, the surname Hakes probably refers to a bill hook (or "bill"), a nasty weapon used in medieval warfare.
LEADERS
Co-Leader of the Greeters Project.
MENTORS
Following this tag because I'm part of the Mentors Project.
PARTRIDGE
I'm a descendent of John Partridge of Medfield, Massachusetts.
PGM
Puritan Great Migration - many of my ancestors and those of my husband were part of the wave of people, Puritan and otherwise, who came to America between 1621 and 1640.
PUMPHREY
Nancy Pumphrey was my 3rd ggm. She was born in 1810 in Pitt County, North Carolina. She married John Gregory in Georgia about 1830. They moved to the Republic of Texas after he was charged with murder in the US.
SAVELL
Serena Savell was my 3rd ggm. She was born about 1820 in Mississippi, and married Stephen Allen. She died in 1879 in Rusk County, Texas.
SIDER
Mary Sider, sister of Joseph, was my 3rd ggm. She was born 1825 in Pennsylvania. She married Cyrus Scott Crone in Champaign County, Ohio in 1850. They settled in Smith County in East Texas, where Cyrus worked as a cabinet maker. Mary died in Texas in 1916.
STYLE
Following this tag as part of Arborist and Mentor roles.
WAINWRIGHT
I think that Anstress Wainright was my husband's 2nd ggm. She was born about 1824 in New York, and married Reuben Sanders. They lived near Binghamton, Broome, New York.


DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Carole by comparing test results with other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Carole:

Thank you Carole for trying to help me with my Shouse info, but there were so many mistakes that I went in and did my best to get some changes made. I still have not been able to remove where they have "half" by my brother's names, but maybe I'll soon learn. I really do not know why I have two, but the one with my picture is supposed to be the original. I do not understand about the "merge" so maybe I will get to familiarize myself with procedures soon. All help is appreciated. I have my Shouse info Rev. Nelson researched so maybe soon I can post more that will help others. Thanks again! Lib

Thanks for the tip on where to go for an introduction to the site. So far, I've added my father. Next will put my mom up. Someone has done a book on her mother's Bowen family, taking it back to the Norman conquest. How will I need to handle that? I'm sure the book is copyrighted, and I doubt that the man who put it together is still alive.

The dates are too far off for the Hatfield merge - more research is needed as these are really common names
