Descendant of PGM migrant Baskel, Brundish, Buckingham, Castle, Clark, Collins, Eaton, Frost, Grover, Hopkins, Howland, Husted, King, Kirby, Lamb, Lewis, Lippitt, Phelps, Rice, Richmond, West, White and more.



Most of my ancestors arrived in North America well before 1700 with a number of the family lines being part of the Puritan Great Migration (1620-1640) including Baskel, Brundish, Buckingham, Castle, Clark, Collins, Eaton, Frost, Grover, Hopkins, Howland, Husted, King, Kirby, Lamb, Lewis, Lippitt, Phelps, Rice, Richmond, West, White and more.

The progenitor of our branch of Stantons was John Stanton who arrived Virginia 1635.

Our earliest documented Native American ancestor was my 9th great grandmother, a Wampanoag Massasoit woman named Mary or Sarah, who married 9th great grandfather James Covell Sr in 1660, Edgartown, Massachusetts.

Quakers and Revolutionaries

A very significant portion of my ancestry is Quaker going back to the founding of the Society of Friends and the family has remained Quaker into the 21st Century. This is juxtaposed against another significant portion of my ancestry which includes many Revolutionary War Patriots. Some who served later became Quaker such as Capt Ebenezer Seeley who for a time served under Gen. Washington. The following lists are being added to as time permits.

Joseph Razey

Abner Cooper

US Presidential Relatives

WikiTree has a disturbing number of lineages to Presidents without those relationships being confident. This list contains those where my lineage to the common ancestor has been vetted and marked confident. This list is being added to as time permits.

Franklin Pierce - 6th cousin 5 times removed; 6 common ancestors
Andrew Johnson - 4th cousin 4 times removed; 4 common ancestors
Ulysses S. Grant - 7th cousin 4 times removed, 8 common ancestors. It is interesting that my 9th great grandparents, Capt Richard and Joanna Betts, lived on the very road in Queens, New York as I did 300 years later. Joanna's mother, my 10th great grandmother Elizabeth Stoughton Chamberlain, is the common ancestor with President Grant.
Rutherford B Hayes - 6th cousin, 3 times removed; 8 common ancestors
James A Garfield - 5th cousin 3 times removed; 16 common ancestors

Thomas Baels. Thank you for your note. The issue that appears to have happened with this profile is that someone made changes to the info and bio after I created it. I had a taken a break most of the year due to some personal issues but i am getting back into it. I will have to look at what was done to this profile and perhaps set it back. I try to be real careful and not add info that doesn't make sense or has no source to back it up. I will correct errors and consider all the info I have on this tonight. Thank you for catching this.

You can certainly proceed with cleaning up Jacob Overman's profile as far as I'm concerned.
