In researching the MORRIS family I came across your listing for ID: I335878 Robert MORRIS and was amazed that you were able to upload his picture to RootsWeb. What is your genealogy software that allowed you to do that?
Thanks & regards,

Hello. Thank you for removing names of Living individuals. I would like to request that your remove the names of generation 3 descendants of Thos H. Buckingham because some of them are still "Living".
I wish people would notice that you have an extreme shortage of source documentation. It is secondary information so needs to be double checked by site visitors with other evidence, preferably primary sources. Thank you.

Hi Tim-
Just a short note:

James Dennis, born ~ 1636 of Marblehead, MA, married to Mary Charles, had three children : Amos, born 1669, Annie (or Agnes) born 1672, and James, Jr., born 1660. This is not the James Dennis of Boston born to William Dennis and Jane Scarlett, who married Mary Coney.

My tree:


Carolyn A. Dennis-Sykes, direct descendant of James Dennis, born 1636, through his son Amos Dennis.

RE; The descendants of Zachary Scott Taylor;>2. Richard Strother Taylor;>3. Betty Taylor;>4.Myrthe Celeste Taylor>+ Albert Francis Schwartz. The last named individual is a paternal second great uncle of mine. His name was Albert Franciscus Schwartz, born Oct. 21, 1870, died Dec. 15, 1917. His father was Charles Wheeler Schwartz, born Allegheney, Pa, 1840, died in Philadelphia 1913. His mother was Maria Sarah Preston, born in Connecticut in 1840, died in Philadelphia, Pa. 1882. (Her line goes back to William Preston, Sr who arrived in America 1634 on the ship "True Love".Albert's older brother, Preston (1868-1949) was a paternal GGf. Another older brother was Charles William Schwartz, Jr. who was president of Philadelphia Textile Machinery, Inc (Later: Proctor & Schwartz, Inc) A younger brother, Walter Marshall Schwartz became President of P&S after CWS,Jr's passing in 1921. I discovered Myrthe in a faded letter dated 1934 from my Gf CWS,III (1893-1962# to his father, listing among other people all of the descendants from Ancient Woodbury Connecticut. She was on the line that listed Albert m Myrtahe #sic) Celeste Stauffer. By using various permutations, I discovered the correct spelling. To date, using this site among other publications, I have created a tree completely rectified to R. Whitney Tucker's "The Descendants of the Presidents" Please feel free to contact me if you would like to expand the pedigree of Albert. CWS,V

We are related to Gabriel Scott, but I believe it is not Gabriel Byrd Scott. Very confusing. There is yet another Gabriel Scott also. I believe that James Ira Byrd Scott has been misplaced on my tree in

Try, try, try as I have, year after year, to find proof that Emily EGGLESTON, born abt 1821, NY, to have been a daughter of David EGGLESTON and his wife, Olive CARTWRIGHT, all my efforts have been in naught.
First and foremost, I find it unlikely that David and Olive named three daughters Emily, especially with the second daughter, Emily, still living and surviving until
Secondly, I have found nothing to place David and Olive, or anyone else in their family to have had a presence in Norfolk, ON, CAN, or anywhere else in Canada for that matter.

I believe it much more likely that Emily EGGLESTON, b abt 1821 to have been a daughter of Darius EGGLESTON, b 1773, MA, and his wife, Mary BROWN, b 1777. Darius and some of his family were in Norfolk, ON, CAN, sometime prior to 1841, where Emily EGGLESTON, b abt 1821, married John OMSTEAD, 1836. Darius EGGLESTON’s son, Perry EGGLESTON and some of his family, continued having a presence in Norfolk, ON, CAN, till sometime after 1880, perhaps much later?

Hi Tim ! Wednesday Night, December 3, 2014
I came upon your genealogy site tonight, by chance. It seems too amazing to be true for a person to have found all these connections in a lifetime ! I don't mean to be critical of you or anything, but how in the world were you able connect all these individuals to you and your family? Is there a magic trick to doing this?
Do you have documentation (records, deeds, wills, birth records, death records and other source documents to show the proof of all these connections to you and your family? Are you a professional genealogist ? I would hope you have records to fully back your info here up with proofs... Anyway, I just wanted to ask you and get a better feel as to good information rather than that of someone that copies everything on the internet as truth and has no proof/sources/documentations to anything collected for their family tree connections. As you may know, there is all kinds of false information on the Internet and some folks will believe it as truths and there is absolutely nothing to back up what they have with source documents to each individual connection in their tree as truth. I've seen some that have connections all the way to Adam and Eve and I know there is no way that can be proven. If there is no source documentation records, etc. with a family genealogy it is nothing more than a "Myth" or "Wishful Thinking". I'm not saying this the case for you, but your info is so vast here that it seems almost impossible for one to believe it to be true. I've been doing genealogy for over 20 years and my skills are pretty good at times, but don't think I could ever get as far as you have gotten here in my lifetime! Can you tell me a little more about yourself as to if you are a professional genealogist or have an army of professional genealogists helping you out - (like, say the tv show professionals on the "Who Do you Think You Are?" show with connections to your family tree ? I want to believe your tree is possible, as it would immensely help me find new family lines I may be a relative to. One person, I do see that I am a relative to in your tree is "HODGES COUNCILL and wife, LUCY COUNCIL" ` they are my 7th Great Grandparents from the Isle of Wight County, Virginia. Please don't take my inquiry to you here as anything negative toward your information, but I am just very careful to make sure I have accurate family information in my connections with sources to back up what I say or have found to be proveable, so if I'm questioned how can I prove what I say ... I have the tru answer and show it. Ive heard many good genealogists tell me over and over that it is just wishful thinking or fantasy to say one is connected to someone else as a family relative, until proven by sources.
Will you please respond when you have an opportunity. It would be nice to hear from you and learn more, as we would be kin somehow if all is provable with source information. My email is below.
My email spamcatcher will probably catch your email, but I will catch it and add you to my email contact list and respond back to you.
Thank You Very Much for any considerations you can give !

My great great grandfather (James Robb, born 1812) was from County Tyrone (according to the family tradition) and is shown on the 1850 Census for Bellmont, Franklin County, New York. ? My relatives were Protestant and from Scot-Irish descent. James and his siblings were brought to this country by their father, Alexander Robb.
One of your relatives is shown on the same page as my relative which indicates they were neighbors. Do you happen to know what County your relative was from? More importantly, do you know the Parish or Townland from where he came? Do you know where your relative left from (Liverpool?) and when he came to this country? I have searched the Tithe Applotment records, the Flax Grower’s records etc. Unfortunately, many records were destroyed as you well know and records were not well kept during this early time.
I would appreciate it if you could provide me any information you have on your relatives that lived in Bellmont or Malone, Franklin County as that might provide the keys to me finding more about my family. My ancestry membership expires 9/15 so please reply to my personal email. Thank you for your help. Kathy Rall

I saw your generations on Rootsweb. They are my grandparents also. I descend from Eltonhead Conway and Henry Thacker SR. Her parents are Edwin Conway, SR and Martha Eltonhead daughter of Richard Eltonhead and Anne Sutton.

Here is the link I saw at Rootsweb.

Anne Sutton's parents in my line are Peter Stanley and 2nd wife Cecily Tarleton. I noticed you have Peter Stanley's parents as Peter Stanley and Ann Harington. That is an error and I wanted you to know about it as you have pretty good data at Rootsweb. I am on a medieval genealogy mailing list and have books by Douglas Richardson, who I know, who has written, Plantagenet Ancestry, Magna Carta Ancestry and the new set of Royal Ancestry. I have these books.

Actually Peter Stanley's father is William Stanley that married Ann Harington dau of James Harington and Isabella Radcliffe.

Here is what I have on notes on Peter Stanley that married my Cecely Tarleton from my Family Tree Maker.

PETER STANLEY was the founder of the STANLEYS of MOOR HALL near Aughton in Lancashire, England.

" Praye ye the good estate of PETER STANLEY SEQIR and CECELY his wif with their children who caused this work to be made in the yere of our Lord God a thousand CCCCCVI.
So runs the inscription over the doorway on the south front Moor Hall, the most interesting and historical residence that we possess in Aughton."

PETER STANLEY was the founder of the STANLEYS of MOOR HALL near Aughton in Lancashire, England. He was the second son of SIR WILLIAM STANLEY, KNT. of HOOTON in the Wirral of Cheshire. by ANN HARRINGTON. On 26 May 1528 his father granted him lands at Little Stourton and Great Stourton in Cheshire. He married ELIZABETH, the daughter of JAMES SCARISBRICK, by MARGARET, the only daughter of THOMAS ATHERSTONE of Bickerstaffe, aand after his marriage he acquired MOOR HALL and its lands in 1533, when the reversion was conveyed to him by WILLIAM BRADSHAUGH. He had a daughter MARGARET by his first marriage who married HENRY STANLEY 26 Sep 1653., son of SIR JAMES STANLEY of Cross Hall.l. ELIZABETH died in 1557 and was buried at Ormskirk.

On 21 April 1559, PETER married secondly to CECILY, daughter of RICHARD TARLETON of Walton. (this researcher's grandparents.) Over the doorway of the present MOOR HALL, there is an inscription, asking for prayers for PETER STANLEY and CECILY his wife, who caused the work to be made.

" He was Standard Bearer at the funeral of EDWARD, Third Earl of Derby, who had bequeathed his body to be buried in the Parish Church of Ormskirk, and a Chapel to be erected. The obsequies took place on the 4th December, 1572, and were accompanied with the most lavish expense and magnificence. PETER STANLEY was fourth in the order of procession, and is described as " An Esquire bearing the Standard, with his hood on his Head," and Horse trapped to the Ground, garnished, with a Shaffron" Escutcheons of Buckram Metal, on each side two "PETER STANLEY."

At the Reformation , he adhered to the Old Faith, and during the years of prosecution, he gave shelter to Catholic priests, who continued to say Mas in the private chapel of MOOR HALL. PETER was required in 1584 to provide a light horseman accountered at his expense for the Queen's service in Ireland (or pay a fine of L20)

" His will was proved 7th August , 1592 (published in Chetham Socy.'s vol 51)." PETER died and was buried 24 July 1592 at Ormskirk, styled óf Bickerstaffe.'He held seven messauges, lands and meadows at Bickerstaffe, Aughton, Ormskirk and Skelmersdale, also lands at Netherton and Rainford, and a house and land in Upletherland óf the Queen by the yearly rent of 6 pence.'

CICELY died before him in 1658 and was buried 28 Nov at Ormskirk.

This is what I have on Peter's father William Stanley.

WILLIAM STANLEY, Knt., Hooton (in Wirral) and Storeton, Cheshire, and Stanley, Staffordshire, was Sheriff in 1526, he married ANNE HARINGTON , daughter of JAMES HARINGTON, Knt., of Brixworth, Northamptonshire, by ISABEL, daughter of ALEXANDER RADCLIFFE, Esq. WILLIAM STANLEY was knighted in 1513.

And this is what I have on James Harington:

SIR JAMES HARRINGTON, Knt., of Westleigh, Blackrod, Bretherton (in Croston), and Elston (in Preston), co. Lancaster, Brixworth and Hulcote, Northamptonshire, Drumbeth, etc., co. Cumberland, son and heir, born about 1447 (aged forty at his father's death in 1487). He married before 1465 ISABEL RADCLIFFE, daughter of ALEXANDER RADCLIFFE, of Ordsall, Salford, co. Lancaster, by AGNES, daughter of WILLIAM HARRINGTON, Knt., of Hornby, Lancashire. They had one son, WILLIAM and eleven daughters. SIR JAMES HARRINGTON died testate (P.C.C., 18 Horne) on 26 June 1497. In the period, 1497-1500,NICHOLAS HARRINGTON his brother and heir male, sued his widow and executrix, ISABBEL, in Chancery regarding the "detention of deeds relating to the manors of Brixworth and Hulcote, Northamptonshire; the manors of Westleigh, Blackrod, and Ellerton, and land in Pulton, Fyswyke, Dynkeley, Pennington, Preston, Lancaster, Ihalton, and Bolton, Lancashire; and the manors of Drumbeth, Bothell, Bemond and Brunskath and the advowson of the church of Bownesse, Cumberland.

[Reference: List of Early Chancery Proceedings, 3 (PRO, London, Lists and Indexes, No. XX): 426]. In the period, 1500-1501, WILLIAM RADCLIFF, gentleman, receiver of DAME ISABEL, late the wife of SIR JAMES HARINGTON, knight sued NICHOLAS HAARINGTON, brother of SIR JAMES,in Chancery regarding "refusal to prepay rent paid in advance for lands in the north parts [i.e., Cumberland] of which defendant has disseised Dame Isabel [Reference: List of Early Chancery Proceedings,

4 (PRO, London, Lists and Indexes, No. XXIX), pg. 28]. In the period,1504-1515, WILLIAM STANLEY and ANNE his wife, daughter of JAMES HARRYNGTON, knight sued JOHN, son and heir of GILBERT ORMESTON, last surviving feoffee to uses in Chancery regarding "half the manor of Elston, Lancashire willed to the said ANNE [Reference: Ibid., 4: 385]. ISABEL, widow of SIR JAMES HARINGTON, died 20 June 1518..

I hope this helps and it would be nice to hear from you. I was trying to send you this info by your email address you have posted at Rootsweb but it came back not delivered. These lines go back to Henry II of England and on back to the Conqueror, etc. That is my lineage.

Do you still have this on your web pages too? Like to see it once again. Been working on my Scandivain stuff and it's rather involved as well. One needs a stiff drink to takle them folks.

Your 2nd great-grandmother (Emeline Elizabeth ARCHER) is the sister to my great-grandfather (George Lester ARCHER).

Just last month I located and placed flowers on his grave in Nebraska. You can check here for the details and pictures if you are interested.

I found some errors and additions on your tree posting on RootsWeb.

Mary Luella ARCHER was not married in 1866, as she was born in 1869.

Her first husband was Fred D. CHAPIN who was born about September 1855 and died December 30 1897 in Alexandria, Thayer county, Nebraska.

They had 4 children but I have records of the two that you don't, and they are.

George G. CHAPIN born abt July 12 1888 and died December 15 1897 in Alexandria. (see headstone picture on our blog#

Martha A. CHAPIN born abt March 12, 1896 and died January 12, 1898 in Alexandria. #see headstone picture on our blog#

Fred D Chapin died December 30 1897 in Alexandria. #see headstone picture on our blog)

George Lester ARCHER is also buried in Alexandra.

I also have newspaper clippings of the deaths and burials that I have scanned if you would like them.

Please feel free to use the pictures but with credit to "Richard and Jacqueline DRIVER"

I'm looking for my pollard relatives from Adams County, Ohio. I've been able to verify that my great-grandfather was Jonathan Pollard born around 1825-1826. I can't find records about his parents. He was born in Ohio and married to Julia/Juley D. There is an Andrew on your family tree (related to your wife, I believe) that was born in 1821. His parents were Jonathan Pollard Jr. and his mother Seneth Salisbury/Salsbury. Do you have a complete list of their children. I thought that I found it on one of your websites, but I can't find it now. Thanks for your help - Pam

Hey, from what I've read on your page I guess we are cousins but I can't figure out how from the information you have online. I am a direct descendant of Bryant Boone and his first wife Mary. I am also a second cousin of Pat Boone. Our grandfathers were brothers.In fact right now I am working with his sister-in-law Trish Boone, wife of Nick. I'm also curious as to where you found that Bryant's middle name was Randal (sp?) I have never heard that. Look forward to hearing from you. Mary Louise

I came across your site by accident but a few names jumped out at me. I see you are descended from William Tecumseh Sherman. So am I! The other names that jumped out at me were Sherman, Royal & Williams.

My dad did A LOT of genealogy research on his family before he did. We always knew the link to Sherman but I don't know the exact trail, although my dad did. His name was Royal Vincil Williams, Jr and he was from Versailles, MO. Do you know anything about this side of the family?

My mom still has all of my dad's research. He died 2 years ago.

I see you have some Shoptaugh info. I have info on the daughter of Peter and Nancy Shoptaugh: namely Nancy L.,who married William James White of Warrick Co., IN. They were the parents of 4 children: Samuel Peter, Mary Ann, Atlanta L., and Franklin Thomas. I have quite a bit of data on the descendants of Samuel Peter and Atlanta. William James White and wife Nancy were divorced in 1870. He remarried and had more children. She did not remarry but had a daughter, Ambrosia. I will be happy to share the rest of my information.

Is there a generation missing between John [1724, 1727, 1729] and Thomas Buchanan? Most family trees give John's father as William Alexander son of Thomas Buchanan. Thank you. I'm most interested in this particular family line as I may be a direct descendant.
