Biography

I started genealogy while helping Mom move in 1998. Found Dad's family bible in a box in the garage and input "Tanton Swaim" on Genealogy.com and found Lloyd Swaim, who sent Tanton's ancestors back to Thys Barentson who came to Staten Island, New Amsterdam from the Netheralands aboard the Brother Jonathan in 1654. My husband, Don Wycoff grew up in foster homes. I input his father's First, Middle, and Last name on Genealogy.com and learned that his father had died, age 61, but before he died, he re-married and had three daughters. We were able to meet Don's three sisters before Don died, age 62. When I first met Don, I felt like I knew him from somewhere before, but he moved here from several hundred miles away and we had never had the opportunity. I joked years later that maybe our ancestors met. At that time we knew we each had one early American immigrant, one from Virginia and one from New York. Since then, I have found 18 times and places where our various ancestors were in the same place at the same time as they criss-crossed America from Virginia and New York to New Jersey, Ohio, Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, and California. Unfortunately when Microsoft discontinued XP, I was unable to move my files to Windows 8 or Windows 7 (home premium or professional) or Linux. I am going to try Windows 10 next. At about the same time, Ancestry bought Genealogy.com and my on-line family tree disappeared. So, in the meantime, I am trying to re-construct from memory and from what I and others placed on Find a Grave. I have had some help with that since joining WikiTree. I did manage to salvage a spreadsheet of my census records and some other documents I emailed to others over the years, but it will take time to pull out my other information and references. Your patience is much appreciated.

Please check the Richard Stout and family profiles you entered. They are duplicates I believe and will have to be merged. Thank you Sharon

My girl friend is Susan Brown of Wichita, Kansas. She was the daughter of Lloyd Wyckoff Brown and Inez Williams. Lloyd Brown was a son of John Meeks Brown and Irene Belle Wyckoff thus the source for Loyd's middle name. Irene was the daughter of Sylvester and his wife, Letitia (Remey) Wyckoff. You may know the rest of the Wyckoff ancestry from here. I know Susan is a double Wyckoff descendant. We started dating back in my Air Force days. I am a native of New York State and my Gt. Gt. Grandmother was Jane (Wyckoff) Gulick so after 30 years of not seeing one another I returned to Wichita and we met up again. That is when we found out that we were cousins through the Wyckoff's. We still find it amazing that we met back in 1962.

Martha,

I've merged the profiles that you created for Nathaniel Stevens, his wife Abigail Barnum and their son Nathan Stevens with profiles that already existed on WikiTree for those persons.

Kind regards,

Patrick

Hey Cuz,

Check it out and see what you think. By copy and pastiing the caption underneath, it adds it to the Biography of any profile. Tanton's Bible page is about the 6-7th image down.

Hi Martha,

When you create a profile here on WikiTree, an actual birth or death date is required. Please don't use 0000-00-00 for a date. Thanks!

Hey Martha,

Nan was referring to Daniel Agee's parents and spouse. Just go to the "Privacy" button at the top of each profile, set to "Open" with the radio button, and click save. That way others who are related to them will be able to see their data and connect them with their own ancestors. If you have any trouble, just let me know.

Hope all is well, talk to you soon.

- Phillip
