Hi Cousin Christine!

Yes, Christine, I'm indeed sure that Gov. Thomas Welles, of Connecticut Colony, is my ancestor. Yes, I'm ALSO sure that I am descended from Deacon/Doctor Thomas Wells of Ipswich, Massachusetts. When I discovered WikiTree, I was already a member of BOTH the Mayflower Society and the DAR, but I haven't pursued membership in Colonial Dames to date, although my great-aunt Anna Belle Turkington WAS a member way back in the early 1900s. Anna Belle died 3 years before I was born, but it was she and her mother that raised my father. Thank you for calling my attention to the fact that you couldn't find a relationship between me and Gov. Thomas Welles on WikiTree. This fact just serves to remind me that I haven't finished entering my tree into WikiTree and have quite forgotten where I left off!!! Bye the Way, you and I are cousins quite without the above ancestors - through Edward "of Killingworth" Griswold (1607-1691). Thanks, again, for calling my attention to this problem of a connection not showing up on WikiTree. I'll have to look into this!

Good luck with qualifying/applying to Colonial Dames!!!

Please provide documentation that Samuel is the son of Edward Kemp. I haven’t found any and I would like to verify that Edward is my 9th gr-grandfather. Thank you.

Thanks for your comment. So far all connections for me run through my wife. there are probably far too few profiles from Bohemia on WikiTree to result in direct connections.

You posted a couple of comments on Welles-29. If you could cite your sources for the information, we could add that info to the profile narrative. Thanks!

Hi Christine,

No I don't believe we are related at-least closely, I stumbled upon a few of the Zackry profiles while sourcing profiles for the source-a-thon

Have a great day

Hi! I just saw your comment on Kemp-215 - asking if he qualified for Great Migration notation. I'm not a member of that project, so I'm not for sure, but since he immigrated to Virginia, I don't think so.

You might want to post the question to G2G from his profile page. Tag it pgm & Kempe at least.

Cheers, Liz

Your exactly like me on here. But they wont prove a line. Unless it disputes one that is excepted. We have the line, but now the work starts. Because the lines must be proved now. Most line's beyond 4 generations are really looking to source the line to the first sourced Baron. Some lines my have been sourced sooner. They are all supposed to be sourced when added. I can source anything I add.

I find mine comes from 1607 on. And all linked in here as magna carta immigrants. All cousins from the wars of the roses days. Its what I find?

All related to key people's like Beauchamp. Beaufort, Beaumont . Because these familys married everyone in what we call the peerage.. For politcal reasons or whatever. Added: ps Even being unproved I know we are related. I am in the Beauchamp circle. You should run my gedmatch number's. The numbers in my profile. I think your a key.

I cant access that account. I switched emails. And havent fixed it.
