Followed Tags
David is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
I have several apparent connections to early Plantagenet royalty. I have also been interested in the life of William the Conqueror.
I have several gateway royal descent ancestors, so would like to follow this tag for a while to see how it works and how I might fit into it.
I have several probable links to Henry III, and want to follow research that proves or disproves them.
Several ancestral lines traveled west through Indiana, and some of them settled there for a while. In particular, my g2-grandparents Shannon and Gray were married in Brown County.
Ancestors on both sides of my family spent time in Iowa, before moving north to Minnesota or west to South Dakota and Montana.
Several of my lines settled for a while in Kentucky, especially Graves and adjoining counties.
Primary interests are Cobb family of Cumberland County, others related to them, and a few from different lines.
I have dozens of ancestors in colonial New England, with concentrations in Massachusetts, among others.
Several ancestors: Fuller, Tilley, Howland, Soule, Hurst, Hopkins, Brewster.
This is my home state and current residence. I have several great, great grandparents who were early settlers in various locations.
Several ancestors were early settlers of New Hampshire, before moving on to Vermont, New York and points west.
Several of my main lines, especially on my mother's side, resided in upstate New York following the Revolutionary War, and for several generations before moving on to points west.
Ancestors from Virginia settled in Caswell County, before moving to Tennessee. Main surnames Elliott, Sims, Rice. Another family line settled on the coast in Craven County, main surname Taylor.
I have many ancestors, who came to New England during this period.
I have several Scottish ancestors, and many more Scot-Irish.
Earliest known ancestor is Samuel Shannon (about 1783 - after 1870), who emigrated from Londonderry, Northern Ireland, arriving in Baltimore, Maryland between about 1812 and 1818 (no passenger lists have been kept, prior to 1820). Traveled west, stopping in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and finally Brown County, Indiana, in about 1842. He met his (possibly 2nd) wife Margaret __?__ , also from Northern Ireland, in Baltimore, where they were married, and had my g2-grandfather Robert Shannon in 1819.
I have ancestors who migrated from Caswell County, North Carolina to Davidson>Montgomery>Stewart Counties, and then to Weakley County. Main surname is Elliott.
Many of my immigrant ancestors are early colonists of New England, and also some from Virginia. I would like to follow research on their descendants. I am also particularly interested in the history and migration patterns of Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Iowa, and Minnesota.
Several ancestors on my mother's side resided in Vermont for a few generations, until moving to New York and on farther west.
Ancestors on both side of my family were early settlers in Virginia, some as far back as 1620. They then migrated to Tennessee via North Carolina, or to northern Kentucky and Indiana.

Hi David,

I sent you a PM. I should have mentioned I saw your note on Ann Squire's profile - not Henry's. Sorry for any confusion. Sharon

Hiya David!

I see you are making changes to some profiles and adding great sources in the comment box. Is it possible you could leave the source in the sources section of the profile as well so the next person who comes along will see the source for the change you made? That would help improve the profile even more!

Thanks so much for your hard work Emma--Wiki Mentor :-)

Hello David,

You've probably been hard at work adding family members and getting connected to those that are already here. You should have at least a few profiles that you manage now. So, this week we're going to look at how to work with your Watchlist: How to Manage Your Watchlist.

As always, your questions are welcome!

Thanks, WikiGreeter Cindy
