Most of my ancestors arrived in North America well before 1700. Many family lines are part of the Puritan Great Migration (1620-1640) including Adcocke, Ashley, Barlow, Baskel, Baysey, Beckwith, Bicknell, Bigelow, Bincks, Brundish, Buckingham, Castle, Clapp, Clark, Collins, Deane, Dickerman, Dickinson, Eaton, Feake, Flagg, Freeborn, Frost, Garfield, Gardiner, Gaymer, Grover, Haffield, Hale, Hopkins, Howland, Husted, Kendall, King, Kirby, Lamb, Lewis, Lippitt, Loker, Long, Manfeyld, Marvin, Mayo, Miller, Newton, Nicholas, Odell, Palmer, Peck, Pemberton, Phelps, Phillips, Pritchard, Redknap, Remington, Rice, Richardson, Richmond, Ring, Ruscoe, Seeley, Seymour, Smith, Sutton, Swift, Terrill, Tidd, Todd, Turner, Turney, Turtle, Twining, Ufford, Warren, Weaver, Weeks, Wells, West, White, Wilder, Wilson, Wing and more.

The purported 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 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 ancestors (hundreds of them) are 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.

Early English and Colonial Quakers

Hannah Baskel
Peter Cook b 1673, Cheshire, England
Herodias Long
Nicholas Phelps
Joseph Razey
Ebenezer Seeley
Thomas Thornbrough

Revolutionary War Patriots

Abner Cooper
James Diven
Paris Rathbun
David Ross
Ebenezer Seeley

Revolutionary War Patriots Who Became Quakers

Ebenezer Seeley

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
Chester Alan Arthur - 7th cousin 3 times removed; 3 common ancestors
Grover Cleveland - 5th cousin 3 times removed; 9 common ancestors

Richard Nixon 7th cousins 2 times removed; 14 common ancestors
Gerald R Ford 8th cousin once removed, 25 common ancestors

Wild Wild West Relatives

This is a new section being added to as time permits.

Chalkley Beeson - a fourth cousin and amazingly a Beeson relative who is not a Quaker minister but rather a law man, cattle baron and owner of the famed Long Branch Saloon.
Frank Dalton - US Marshall, brother to the outlaw Dalton Gang and a ninth cousin.
Pat Garrett - Buffalo Hunter, lawman,Customs Agent and bartender in the old West.He was a friend of Theodore Roosevelt who appointed him a Customs Agent for El Paso, Texas. He became famous for killing Billy the Kid. (Another shirt tail cousin as a 16th cousin.)
Doc Holliday - out here in the Wild West we call him a "shirt tail cousin" (13th cousin, a lucky number)
Jesse James - the notorious outlaw is a 7th cousin four times removed.
Daniel Montague - Early Texas Ranger, 5th cousin six times removed
Bad Frank Phillips - deputy sheriff, freelance gunman, logger, outlaw, and integral part of the infamous Hatfield and McCoy feud; 12th cousin two times removed.
Paden Tolbert - US Marshall Paden Tolbert was one of the leading lawmen in the Indian Territory during the late nineteenth century. He worked with Bud Ledbetter, Heck Thomas and Bill Tilghman and other famous names of the time. He and his brother John Tolbert were both Deputy Marshals under "The Hanging Judge", Isaac Parker. (12th cousin, 5 times removed)

Hello T!

I’m conducting the 6-month check in for the US Black Heritage Project. Because we are growing so fast, it’s not always possible for me to see what everyone’s working on.

I’d love to hear what you’ve been working on and if you are still happy being a part of the profile improvement team. Members can change teams at any time. If you need something to work on, we now have a master task list here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:US_Black_Heritage_Project_Tasklist

We now have a project badge! Hooray! As soon as I hear back from you that you’d like to continue with the project, I will add the badge to your profile.

I look forward to hearing from you,


Congratulations cousin!

best regards,

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hi T! I just realized that you have your US Southern Colonies Discussion Google Group setting to "no mail", so you missed the e-mails about the January Check-in for the project. Please take a look at the google sheet here & get back to me about whether or not it's accurate.

Cheers, Liz

P.S. One of the e-mails you missed was asking about what you'd like to see covered by the project's News Page and any developments/changes you'd like to see for the project in 2021. If you have suggestions in that regard, please reply in the Discussion Group (original post was 27 December).

Hi T,

You may be occupied elsewhere, but ... as a member of the Scotland Project, we'd love to have you join the Twisted Thistles in the upcoming Connect-a-thon the weekend of July 17 - July 20. If you'd like to join us and help to develop our ever-expanding Scottish tree, please register on the G2G post here and be sure to mention you'd like to be on the Twisted Thistles team for Scotland.

We also have our team Chat page posted here.

Hi T,

As you may have seen, we have been doing some restructuring in the US Southern Colonies Project and are now organising ourselves into different teams. We have also changed the criteria for membership. Please have a look at the new project pages, and let me know whether you would like to remain in the project and, if so, which team(s) you would like to be in.

Please can you also send me your e-mail address. I can then make sure you are introduced to your Team Leaders and are in the Google Group.

Please note that it is a requirement for membership in the US Southern Colonies Project that you respond to these check-ins. We’re really excited for the future of the project and hope that you decide to be a part of it with us moving forwards.

Many thanks,

Susie, US Southern Colonies Project Co-Leader

Nice to meet you, step 5th great-grandson of great-aunt of husband of 1st cousin 5x removed.

My relation to Cynthia Ann Stanton Baum, mother of author L. Frank Baum (Oz books), is 12th cousin 5x removed, so I wonder if we might be more closely related.

The oldest Stanton descendant I have for Cynthia Stanton Baum is

Thomas Stanton BIRTH 30 JUL 1616 • Wolverton, Stratford-on-Avon District, Warwickshire, England DEATH 2 DEC 1677 • Pawcatuck, New London, Connecticut

I can't just paste the line through Cynthia from Ancestry (AFAIK) because I'm more closely related to some other people (husband of sister-in-law of 9th great-grandmother), so I have to type it out from here:

Thomas Stanton Jr (1638-1718) William Stanton (1677-1759) Joshu Stanton (1721-1819) Robert Stanton (1751-1811) Oliver Stanton (1780-1854) Cynthia Ann Stanton (1820-1905)

Of course, this is just the direct line. I have siblings on the tree, too.

Cynthia Ann Stanton 1820-1905 12th cousin 5x removed Rhoda Underwood 1790-1854 Mother of Cynthia Ann Stanton Nehemiah Underwood Father of Rhoda Underwood Nehemiah Underwood Father of Nehemiah Underwood Jonathan Underwood Father of Nehemiah Underwood Thomas Underwood Father of Jonathan Underwood Mary Wilder Mother of Thomas Underwood Martha Higgs Mother of Mary Wilder Griffen Higgs Father of Martha Higgs Mary Barton Mother of Griffen Higgs Griffin Barton Father of Mary Barton Catherine Milbourne Mother of Griffin Barton Simon Milbourne 1435-1522 Father of Catherine Milbourne John Milbourne 1404-1435 Father of Simon Milbourne Jane Milbourne 1430-1465 Daughter of John Milbourne D Englefield 1452- Daughter of Jane Milbourne John Hester 1481- Son of D Englefield William Hester 1505-1530 Son of John Hester Catherine Hester 1539-1608 Daughter of William Hester Hugh Parsons 1561-1642 Son of Catherine Hester William Parsons 1582-1654 Son of Hugh Parsons Benjamin Parsons 1627-1689 Son of William Parsons Samuel Parsons 1666-1736 Son of Benjamin Parsons Sarah Parsons 1704-1747 Daughter of Samuel Parsons John William Saxton 1741-1783 Son of Sarah Parsons Sylvia Saxton 1781-1870 Daughter of John William Saxton Ophelia E Munn 1809-1910 Daughter of Sylvia Saxton Osburne Clark Hutchins 1831-1906 Son of Ophelia E Munn Frederick Bradley Hutchins 1867-1922 Son of Osburne Clark Hutchins Osburne Amos Hutchins 1902-1982 Son of Frederick Bradley Hutchins James Frederick Hutchins 1941-2007 Son of Osburne Amos Hutchins Scott Andrew Hutchins You are the son of James Frederick Hutchins

Hello, Todd

Are you any relation to Peter Stanton in Great Barrington, Mass.?

posted by Dave Axtell
Hi, Cousin. We are cousins through the Todd line. But, I noticed your name and a connection to the Stantons through Marriage. My cousins are descendants of the Stantons from Pennsylvania. Wikitree does not connect them with you. I created the profile, Stanton-4771, Howard Orlando Stanton. He is my Aunt’s husband’s grandfather. Are we connected through them also?

Hello T,

My name is Sarah and I’m the Project Coordinator for the Scotland Project. As you may have heard, we have merged the Scottish Clans project into the Scotland Project. I am contacting you today to find out if you are interested in continuing with us under this new format. If you would like to go forward on the Scottish Clans Team, please reply and let me know which clans you have been working on or would like to work on. I see you have expressed an interest in Clan Protocol, would you like me to make sure you're on that team? I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

I stumbled upon a year-old request of yours to be made profile manager of Jordan-811. The profile is a mess and none of the PMs has acted on the comments made there or attached as g2g profiles. I went ahead and made you PM in case you're still interested in returning to it and applying your magic.
