Descendant of PGM migrant.
Daughters of the American Revolution
Jeanie (Thornton) Roberts is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

I was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and have deep New England roots. A full-time nurse, I spend my spare time working on my genealogy and my other love, writing. I am a published author and genealogy blogger. A Veteran, I proudly served eight years in the United States Air Force. I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

I have two blogs: The Family Connection at which focuses on New England and my New England roots with a bit of other stuff thrown in. My second blog is called Indian Reservations at which is about mythical Native Americans.

The culmination of my love of history, genealogy and writing has resulted in two works of historical fiction:

WEAVE A WEB OF WITCHCRAFT  : [1] This book tells the story of Hugh Parsons and his wife Mary Lewis Parsons of Springfield, Massachusetts. Theirs is a tragic story of accusations, witchcraft and murder.

and BLOOD IN THE VALLEY: This is the story of Catherine Wasson Clyde and her husband Samuel Clyde Catherine and her family left New Hampshire for the Colony of New York, they settled in Schenectady just prior to the outbreak of the last French and Indian War. Catherine and Samuel settle in idyllic Cherry Valley but their peaceful life was soon disrupted by the American Revolution.

Hi Jeanie!

Thanks for contributing to Puritan Great Migration profiles over the last six months. Every little bit helps, so please keep those edits coming!

Like all WikiTree projects we check in with team members twice per year and it's that time again. Please respond within the next two weeks to let me know:

  1. If you'd like to continue as a PGM project team member
  2. If you're happy with the team you're on (Research and/or Profile Improvement) or if you'd like to make a change
  3. Optionally, what you like since the reboot back in May or what you think could be improved. This could be something about Discord, or Google Groups, or managed profile spreadsheets, or challenge participation or really anything. If you like everything the way it is, you can let me know that too :)

If you'd like to tell me about a particular project or family you're working on, I'd love to hear about that as well.

Please respond to this message by posting a reply below or sending me a private message on WikiTree. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks!

Thanks Brad. I am happy with my current team. I like to do the merges too. Wish I had about five more hours in a day to do more!
Great to hear Jeanie and thanks for your contributions. If you find some extra hours let me know where you go them :)

I am checking in on behalf of the 1776 Project to announce the new project membership requirements and to verify that you are still interested in being a member of the project. All project members are being asked to join one of the project teams and also to make at least one project contribution every 6 months. We are also asking all project members to join the project's Google Group for project communications.

If you are interested in remaining with the Project, please reply to this comment or send me a message, request to join the Google Group, and let us know what team you would like to participate on.

We really appreciate your contributions on WikiTree, and thank you for all your hard work. If you have any questions, please ask. We would also love to hear any feedback you may have for the project.

If we don't hear back from you we will assume that you no longer wish to participate in the project and if so, you could rejoin at any time as is convenient for you.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Hope to hear from you soon!

Re: Joan (Shephard) Chadwick

She's also attached to all of her children, and her marriage & death information is correct. Which is why I'm rather adamant about it ;)

Hi Jeanie,

I’m working with Eowyn to check-in with everyone holding the Project Coordinator badge to make sure we have the most up-to-date information. As a Project Coordinator badge holder, please can you let me know which project(s) you are currently coordinating and if you have a specific role as coordinator in those projects?

Many thanks,

HI. Sorry I haven't got in touch before, spent the whole weekend adding sources to the Bryan page. I agree that it's time to take a stand on this family. One of the worst cases I have seen of "grab a family". My interest only came about when I did some work on Sir Guy de Bryan never imagining where it would lead. I'm happy working on English profiles, but the whole world of American Family History books and assessing their value is beyond me. Ordinary folk never seem to have bothered about that here until now. A couple of things I've seen around the web do bother me. "The records have been lost, but the stories are true" is one. "Use of arms in America is the best proof of a family's origins" is another. Both non arguments as far as I am concerned. What should we do now?

Thank you so very much for your help with solving a family mystery!
re: Johnson-35157, et al - please feel free to offer repair... I adopted them that way, seeing a problem.

Hi Jeanie. Per your advice, I created a page for St. Margaret's Church and uploaded about 22 photos. Please take a look. How do I send you a link?

By the way, can I somehow link the page to the Moulton, Marston and Eastow profiles that are related? Thanks!

Hi Jeanie. Thanks for the info about adding a page for St. Margaret's church. I'll try to do that this weekend.
