I am interested in communicating with
cousins and anyone else with an interest in genealogy.
Here is my family tree.Ancestors
Growing up, I rarely met cousins. As an adult, I have often met with fourth cousins along a specific line and have enjoyed the discovery that we have more similarities than you would expect. I am interested in meeting any cousin, even fourth or fifth cousins -- or perhaps even more distant! -- who would love to connect.
Born 12th of 15 children. Descended from Edward Shipman, who came from Hull, England to Saybrook, Connecticut in 1639, as well as from Isaiah Cooper, whose family emigrated to Oregon on the first wagon train in 1843.
In connection with the Hewitt-Matheny-Cooper Family Association, I recently published Into the Eye of the Setting Sun, by my gggrandmother Charlotte Matheny Kirkwood. This is a first-hand account of the Oregon Trail and her recollections of the years prior to Oregon statehood. A fascinating memoir!
