Followed Tags
Butch is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
I have a few ancestors and a few other profiles that I look after that were involved in the Revolutionery War.
I spend a fair amount of time merging duplicates,I believe,in some instances,it helps to break down brick walls.
Dad's mothers maiden name.
I'm mostly interested in cemeteries in Pa,and more specifically the cemeteries in Luzerne and Columbia counties.
Mom's side was Crawford on the paternal side and her Mother was a Wirsing
I have ancestors from the Harter family,the Harters appear to have married into most of the early families that came to the Nescopeck/Wapwallopen area.
My Campbell family came from Ireland about 1850.
My families were some of the earliest families to settle in this region.
I'm currently working on a project for Nescopeck,Pa as it was in or just before 1800. At that time it was an area that eventually split into about 6 different townships. I'm also working on a cemetery project for the current cemeteries in Nescopeck Twp.
Evan Owen,a Quaker whose family came to Pennsylvania with William Penn played a big part in the settling of the lower Luzerne county area of Northeast Pennsylvania. A lot of the early settlers to this region were Quakers.
Early ancestors
There appears to be a fairly large contingent of Quakers that were early settlers in Columbia County. The earliest meeting houses in Columbia County were built in Catawissa and Millville in the late 1700s,there was also a meeting house in Berwick for a short while.
Willing to help with research in Pennsylvania,especially Columbia and Luzerne counties.
My Grandparents were Campbells and Crawfords.
My Dad's family is Smith on the paternal side and and his Mother was a Campbell.
I'm as interested in early Pa history as I am about genealogy,especially,early Pa history,Palatinate and Quaker migration,the founding of Philadelphia,migration routes and such.
I'd be interested in helping with this.
I have quite a few ancestors from Wapwallopen.

Hi, Butch. Thanks for the pre-1700 info. I was only interested in it because of the Clean-A-Thon, but when I get back into my own family tree project again, it might be something I want to refer to.

Thank you so much for the welcome and the suggestions! I believe I've already joined the Mayflower Project (definitely an interest of mine) and it seems the Pre-1700 Project will be of interest as well, as my father's ancestors who were not on the Mayflower were part of the Great Migration.

Thank you for your advice. I'm trying to get info on the New _ Sweden project. Again, thanks!

Hello, I am new to Wikitree but not to traditional genealogy and the 1700 back is my primary focus. My lines run up and down the coast with Early New England, 1600 Virginia and South Carolina traders. I have my share of New Amsterdam as well. I am interested in both leads but I am looking for real documentation. Oh, almost forgot all my Quakers and Pa Germans.

Hello Butch,

Thank You So Much for Sharing the information on pre-1700 research. My Primary Focus at this time is Accurate information on Simon Couch, born in 1633 in Devon(Shire) England and his Wife. He was quite Relevant in Connecticut History, as were many of his Descendants. I am also looking for Ancestors of Jacques Nicholas LePrince born in Normandy France in 1666, I believe. I know Jacques Immigrated to Canada and many of his Descendants were involved in the Acadian Revolution. It has been a quite Fascinating Journey back through History. I am Looking Forward to Learning much more about both sides of my Family.

Hi Butch. Thank you for welcoming me to the pre-1700 group. My mother is a descendant of Stephen Rogers, a New England Planter who moved from New London to Nova Scotia between 1761-64. I am trying to confirm which Rogers family he is from. The family oral history is that they came over on the Mayflower, but I imagine that may be quite a common story.

Through Roger marriages, I am also related to another New England Planter - Zadock Bennett b: 13 Aug 1733 in Lyme, and the Champion family if indeed Stephen is the son of Jonathan Rogers and Alice Champion.

I am interested in the pre-1700 area of the South Carolina families to connect with English ancestors. So far I have not found anyone else working specifically in this area.

All the best, Henk
