Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogist/Family Historian with a strong interest in the Revolutionary War and Colonial America. Also love archeology, early American sampler work and old cemeteries!

Goal is to one day compile all my information into a book w/ significant bios on each ancestor, along with timelines of historical events in their lives.

Family names I am researching: Blackford, Little, Fitz Randolph, Dunn, Drake, Stelle, Runyon, Martin, Bonham, Beebe, Wansor, Stiles, Mount, Hayes, Hine, Hull, Holmes and Hoyt.

"Dear Ancestor,
Your tombstone stands among the rest neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out on polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care, it is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist - you died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you, in flesh, in blood, in bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot and come to visit you."

Rhonda, we are cousins. They are my 5th GG Parents. I am happy to give you their memorials and hope that we can help each other with research. Do you have the book "Our Kin?" It took a lot of research to find this group of relatives. May I send you an invitation to use and contribute to my family tree? I am overjoyed to hear from you! Do you have a family tree online? Please send me your personal email address to

I do not wish to transfer. Not in rules for mandatory transfer. feel free to send me a bio if you wish, and of course, anyone may add appropriate photos. May I suggest s virtual cemetery for such distant relatives.

Hi Rhonda - I got your message re acceptance of Nathaniel FR edits. Please join us at Facebook closed group page "Fitz Randolph Ancestry" if you would like to share Fitz Randolph research! It's a new group, but we're growing and would love to see you there. If you're not a Facebook person, feel free to let me know and I'd be glad to share with you anything about the FR clan that I've gathered so far! I had just done research on Nathaniel FR when I sent you those edits - quite a guy! Great relative to have! Anne

John Manter - Falmouth and Tisbury, MA

Thank you for your request, which reminds me to add the long overdue bio sketch and summary of the children. John's wife Martha Lumbert was my ancestral cousin and their dau. Mary was the 1st wife of my ancestor. I erected John's memorial to block several notorious "lets see how many memorials I can add from printed genealogies or cemetery books who I have no other information for and who are not remotely related to me" from adding one for John as their supposed personal property. I'm not inclined to transfer, but will shortly add comprehensive bio material that likely will be more than satisfactory to their descendants.

In the meanwhile, I would appreciate if you privately emailed me with the identity of your line from John and Martha (Lumbert) Manter.

Sometime last year you thanked me for our mutually shared ancestor's memorial! I was going through some old emails, so wanted to say I appreciate it, even if I missed it!
