Followed Tags
Pam is a Wiki Genealogist following these tags:
My paternal grandmother was Catherine Bernice Benjamin. I have traced the Benjamin family to their entry into the colonies and have added 5 generations in England. The 5 generations in England have limited sources and are regarded as tentative until I find more sources.
My maternal grandmother was Thelma Cornell although my mother was raised by her aunt Wealthy Cornell. The Cornell family has been traced to the entry into the colonies in 1636 -Thomas Cornell born 1595 at Fairfax Manor, Essex England. 3 additional generations in England are added with some reasonable documentation.
Russega Lyon's parents were descended from the same ancestor that entered the colonies, Richard Lyon Jr.(1625-1678) but were descended from different children-Richard Lyon III (1652-1740) and Samuel Lyon (1670-1732), sons of Richard.
I am interested in learning about my relationships to US Presidents, so far, through the relationship finder I have learned that I am cousins with all but 3 of the US presidents. In this search I learned also that I am descended from Queen Elizabeth II of England and the Plantagenets, William the Conquerer, Napoleon Bonaparte and many others. I need to do a lot of studying to understand the nomenclature of British Royalty.
This is my name so I am clearly interested in finding all of my ancestors. William Walworth born in 1646 entered the colony of Connecticut at the invitation of the governor who wanted him to teach modern farming techniques. He is presumably descended from the William Walworth who killed Tyler Wat to protect the King during a riot. He was knighted as a result- supposedly the 1st commoner to be so knighted. I want to trace back to the time they lived in Durham.
Walworth and Walsworth were in common usage in 1600's in the colonies, sometimes in the same family. Eventually families selected to use or not use the s and now lines generally continue to use one name or the other. There were many spellings in the colonial period but these two seem to have survived over time. Other spellings are in use but many of these are not related to the original immigrant-William Walworth who settled in Connecticut in 1689. He was born in England in 1646.

Yes ran across this history. I haves lot of profiles to source it takes time. If you'd like to work on it. I'll add you.

You recently posted the following G2G, which appeared in my feed: "I am also amd am also related to European Royalty and am the 28th great grandaughter of William the Conqueror so I suspected we are related. I chacjed and we are-17th cousins. Isabell Knollys is a common ancestor." I can't tell if this was intended for me (Bissell-517) or not , but FYI I am descended from Richard III (1st cousin 14x removed) and you and I are 14th cousins 3x removed, common ancestor = Robert Hungerford.

Hi Pam,

Thanks for the Benjamin update comments you have added recently. I am currently entertaining the grand kids this week and a wedding out of state next week, but will get to them as soon as I can.

Thanks for all your help and input. It is appreciated.

Hi, Pam.

You've provided good information about "your" Seth Lyon in comments at Lyon-1697. I'd love to see the different Seth Lyons documented in profiles here -- if for no other reason than to minimize the potential for confusion.

Do you need any help or advice to get started with creating profiles for your Seth and his family? In addition to the Lyon Memorial volume that you cite (which is the Connecticut-New Jersey book, different from the Massachusetts book I've used), I have saved a couple of census records for your Seth.

Thanks for your comment on the page I started for Seth Lyon. I've finally concluded that my Seth Lyon is probably the one born in Pomfret, Connecticut, in 1769. I've seen plenty of records for "your" Seth Lyon, who I believe was born in 1768 in Fairfield. I've encountered records for at least one other Seth Lyon who was born in Massachusetts in 1770, and who appears to have died fairly young. There's also a Seth Lyon in the same general age range who lived in Newton, Mass., and married Eliza Williams. We probably need to create profiles for all of these Seths, carefully document them, and mark them as rejected matches!

That year 1690 came from the death date of Thomas I believe. It's an error and thanks for pointing it out. I'll be correcting it. I believe the date before 1654 would be a good date to use.

Pam, thanks for the info on William & Samuel Benjamin and their families from "The Benjamin Family in America" compiled by Gloria Wall Biche and Helen Benjamin Brown copyright 1977 Library of Congress Catalog Card Number 76-56023.

I will be able to provide an update to WikiTree once I can digest it all.

Thank You! jim

Pam, thanks for the info on Charles & Rebecca Benjamin. I saw that one of their sons was listed as a step-son in the Census but did not look into that yet. I'll look into the info you sent soon I hope.

I would like to be able to view your tree on ancestry. I'll send you my email address later.

I found that the children of Ole A. and Johanna Matilda Olson, John & Jenny who died very young are buried in unmarked graves in Duck Lake Cemetery along with their grandfather Ole J. Johnson. => (Note there is a mistake in the list as Eada Olson has different parents, NOT Ale A. and Johanna). I'll enter the info in WikiTree and send an update later. May be awhile as the hustle and bustle of the holidays is upon us. Jim.

Pam, thanks for the hint on Charles O. Benjamin living in Newaygo area. I had previously tried to find his death certificate assuming he died in Muskegon County. I'll have to make a trip to Newaygo County Clerk's office in the future. Jim
