My interest in genealogy began with annual trips to Oregon to visit grandparents, aunts and uncles. The stories told around my uncles' fireside in Eugene, Oregon, with my great-grandfather's mantel clock ticking away the minutes, were heard over and over until I began to check them out for myself. Once it was discovered that I had an interest in family history, I was given an incredible legacy of heirlooms and photos.

In graduate school I used research skills to track down ancestors on microfilm and in rare books.

Connections to other Wikitree researchers: Baty-260 Common ancestors Beals-61 and Clayton-159

Ford-12624 Common ancestors Frame-345 and Donnard-1 also Thompson-16096 and Downard-26 and due to pedigree collapse Downard-27 and O'Neal-473

McIntosh-3288 Common ancestors Kirk-2060 and Rose-11599

Advance Directive

In the event of my death, I desire that the Wikitree team assume management of the profiles for which I may be manager at the time. It is my desire that the profiles of living people should not be deleted.

Margaret is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
I like to write something every week about the search for ancestors and their life stories.
DNA results on Robb family show close link to Robe of Monongalia County, Va.
The Frame family of Fayette County, Pennsylvania and Guernsey County, Ohio needs serious untangling. I would like to collaborate with Frame researchers.
Kirks were early settlers of Brownsville, Linn County, Oregon. It's my paternal grandmother's surname. Tracing them back from Oregon through Missouri, Indiana, Tennessee and Virginia.
Several families of Lipkes arrived in Wisconsin in the 1840s. I want information on sorting them. One was in Dodge County and the other in Washington and Outagamie County. All seem to have come from the Neu Barnim area on the Oder River.
Pedigree collapse alert. I'm descended from three children of Boston Nosler and wife Sophia. Boston's parents died on the voyage when he was aged 7. They were said to have been Palatines from Switzerland.
I am related to notables Senator John Glenn, and to actors William "Hopalong Cassidy" Boyd and James Wesley Marsters. I have connection information and want to enter it.
Robe is my father's surname. A DNA test revealed a very close match to the Robb family of Chester County, PA ca. 1722-1745.
Banner Shields of McMinn and Polk Counties in Tennessee and his descendants are one of my research subjects.
Somehow the sisters Margaret and Sarah Sweeten are connected to the many Dutton Sweetens in east Tennessee and North Carolina ca. 1780-1815. My ancestor is Margaret (Sweeten) Kirk b. 1811 in Anderson or Campbell County, TN.
Direct ancestor Johann Daniel Koerth served in Company E, 13th Wisconsin Infantry. I am finding Shields cousins involved in Confederate military in Texas. I would like to learn more about Texas CSA regiments.
DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Margaret 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 Margaret:

Hello. My name is Ivania J. Townsend/Morrill. I want to thank you for finding the degrees from you, Fredrerick Douglass and Henry VIII of England. It is astonishing to find that on my mothers side, that the Christensen that marrried Julia Osborne, also goes back to Henry VIII of England and his second wife. So now, the person that would be the 27th degrees, would be my brother Derald D. Townsend. Ivan's son. Thank you again. I can't wait to share this with my brother.
posted by Ivania Townsend Closer than what I typically see in the connections sent out weekly. Thought you might find it of interest!

Margaret, I don't have info on Dennis MT Brassfield's death. Sorry. I'm pleased to see you added Susan but I don't think she is Aunt Susie, right? Regards, Steve.

Thank you for the note. I will try to find my documentation on the Carmichael family and verify the birth location of John. I do know his brother James was born in Scotland but need to doublecheck when the family actually migrated to the U.S.

Regarding your comment about Betsey Woodard on the page for John Woodard. Betsey is short for Elizabeth, and there is, in fact, an Elizabeth Woodard listed on the 1850 Census.
