Biography

My journey to discover my ancestors began when I was 17 years old. As the years went by, I dabbled at it occasionally, with lots of stops along the way as I was busy with raising a family. My efforts were renewed when my paternal 2nd cousin Sarah Z. discovered that two of our 10th great-grandfathers, Richard Warren and Francis Cooke, and his 13 year old son John Cooke, were Pilgrim Separatists and passengers on the Mayflower in 1620. Sarah shared everything and I, like her, joined The Mayflower Society. I wanted to share all of these wonderful ancestors with my family. I am thankful for the generosity of others who shared their information with me, and I like to pay it forward and share with others.

We found many more ancestors who were early settlers in America, and were part of the Great Migration. They settled mainly on Nantucket Island, Cape Cod and Rhode Island. Some of their descendants went west until they reached Montana, Oregon and California.

My mother's ancestors appear to be primarily from Scotland, and have been the most elusive. They seem to have settled mainly in North Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama, moving on to Oklahoma, Oregon and California. One 3rd great-grandfather is rumored to have been a Choctaw Chief!

One grandmother's parents came from Belgium and Prince Edward Island and met in South Dakota.

I am working on writing a Family History book for my family. In my spare time I read, mainly historical fiction, mysteries, general fiction and non-fiction; I spend time with my family; camping, gardening, and I am the Secretary/CFO of a small, local non-profit. I am an avid book collector of all kinds, including genealogy books.

I gave birth to 3, but 8 call me Mom (one is now in heaven). I have 13 grandchildren (one is in heaven) and my genealogy research is devoted to them, with love.

  • Julie Spencer, my 2nd cousin 1x removed, helped with the Taylor and McFarland families.
  • Bessie White Pearson, my grandmother and my great aunt Leila Ellis Ewing, answered all of the family questions they could, when I was 17 years old and sent them questionnaires to fill out. Aunt Lee wrote out her family story.

  • Philip Besselievre, my 3rd cousin, who broke down the Parsons Brick Wall.

  • Carol R., my husband's 2nd cousin 1x removed, Creative Keeper of the Janes/Jaynes Tree.
  • Isabelle Rassinot, native and resident of France, generously spent many hours researching our Schollaert & Huysmans ancestors in French-speaking Belgium records. I am overwhelmed and overjoyed at all of the new ancestors Isabelle discovered and documented for us.

This is Wendy, England Project coordinator for Integration.

I am just checking in with you to see how things are going.

I haven't seen you around the project recently, which may be for a number of reasons, but I wanted to check that everything is ok.

Are you happy with what you are doing in the project, is there something I can help you with to make you more comfortable, or have you changed your mind about being involved?

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you integrate into the project.

My apologies if we just missed each other.

Thank you

Hello,

I have a small concern or worry about the information added to Hugh Isbister's page because I have never had any papers or anything indicating that his mother's name was Janet or that he ever lived in Richmond county. I cannot view the citation you have used because it links to Ancestry, which asks me to log in with a paid account and I do not have one. I would love to double-check and make sure we are referring to the same Hugh.

Hi J,

I've reset the Heins-Mosher mergers to unmerged matches, and will start with the oldest generation first, and will re-propose after that merge goes through. But I just want to be sure that you don't dismiss just because the LNAB are so different. Somehow the lines in a tree got crossed, and the Heins name was overwritten over Mosher. The Heins name came from a German immigrant family, unrelated. If you compare the several generations, Nicholas, Joseph and Barnabas - the dates wives and locations are all the same. Changing the LNAB first only adds an additional merge (which we try to avoid). Thanks!
