The first table lists state and territorial governors of the United States who are deceased and who have profiles on WikiTree that are not yet connected to the main tree. The second table lists unconnected governors who are still living.

  • The "Branch Size" number is the total number of profiles in the branch that contains that person's profile. (If the branch size is 1, it means that that person has not been linked to any parent, spouse, or child's profile.)
  • The "Name" is the full name by which the individual is commonly known.
  • The "Last Name" is the individual's commonly used last name, which can be sorted for alphabetizing purposes.
  • The "Life Span" cell includes the individual's year of birth and year of death which will assist in determining the era in which they lived.
  • The "Order" cell lists that person's order in the succession of the office in that state or district.
  • The "Place" column lists the state or territory where that person held office.
  • The "Connected" column will be blank until that individual has been connected to the Main Tree. One of the page pruners will delete the connected entries in a few of weeks, after everybody has had a chance to celebrate the new connection.

You can sort the list by any column (Branch Size, Name, Last Name, Life Span, Order, Place, or Working On) by clicking on the sort symbol in the header for that column.

When you connect a branch (or discover one that's already connected), add Connected and then the date. Put three single quotes (') before and after "connected" to put it into bold, like this: "'Connected Feb 2024'".

I connected Arthur Harry Moore (1877-1952) through his wife's sister's husband's family.

I haven't looked at ths page in a long time, and my word! What a lot of progress there has been! To be honest, when I started this page, I thought that connecting every governor would be too big a job ever to be finished, but it's starting to look like it will actually happen! I am so impressed with all of you who have connected governors!

I have connected the Rodman McCamley Price line to the Global Tree, through a patrilineal and then a matrilineal line.

There's a ton of Maine governors not included here. How can they be added to this table? You can start with James Longley, who served from 1975-1979. His profile is entirely unconnected.

Hi Jaki,

In order to keep the list manageable, we're including about 3 unconnected governors per state/territory at a time. As they are connected, I go down the line sequentially. That being said, you are welcome to work on any of the governors. :) Some of the states have a lot more unconnected governors than others.

I also connected the two Bowies who were Maryland governors (11 and 34, iirc.)

That's great! Thank you for working on those Anne :)
