Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing Geneaolgy for 30 years. Before that was my Great Aunt Lois who for years did family history. And who helped many Gen. author's with their research. Also her cousin Bernie who did the first Clan MacBean Geneaolgy books. Then corrected, revised and expanded and in the hand's of Dr. Joseph S. Bean. Still being updated even now by Clan MacBean, Inc. since many families are still incomplete. I guess you could say it's a family hobby.
The photo? From back in the day. Jul 1976 actually. They said I was the first mother (of two) to join the Armed Forces after they finally decided, ok, I guess we gotta. But who believes recruiters? My CO said the same thing so I guess I'll accept it.....anyway, I'm a grandmother now and quite happy about it! Spoil rotten hand back is my motto!
................. I lost my sister Dec 2013 and have not been doing much here or anywhere. I do try to answer messages and such but for now my heart isn't entirely in it. Do forgive if I missed something or wasn't as on top of. In time.

Sir Robert Conable
Thank you for the specific reference, "Plantagenet Ancestry..." Very helpful, especially since we are so prone to assume that royal lineage is correct if it sounds good.

RE: Nancy C. Eddy Avery # 11815329
Since you descend from the John of Taunton line and I descend from the William Eddye of Cranbrook line, you can tell I am not related to Nancy so no transfer is necessary, but thanks for the kind offer. However, my Grandfather told me he met Nancy at an Eddy reunion or get-together around 1900 and they corresponded for several years after that. I remember specifically that conversation because her "middle" name was Clapp which stuck in my mind. Recently while doing some Eddy genealogical research I noticed Nancy's family and picture so I posted the picture. Just a friendly connection. My line is William Eddye, Samuel, Zachariah, Joshua, Peter, Jonathan, John, Jonathan, John, Martin, Edyth Eddy married Ward G. White, then Me, Ward C. White.

RE: Re John Lowell
Thanks Paula,

I am having a hard time with the different dates in the Judge John Lowell book, and the Lowell Genealogy book by Delmar Lowell. I presume that the newer book would have the more accurate information?

RE: Grave of Peter, Bither
Wow that's amazing that we are related. Had you known Peters Bithers story from his childhood the big events of his life I had mentioned? I would like to take a closer look and figure out if we are first second or third cousins. It's great to meet new people that I never knew were part of my family 😄

Grave of Peter, Bither
Peter Bither is one of my first ancestors, I have a genealogy report done by my great grandmother, it has his whole history about how he came overt to America as a young boy and his only defense against the mean sailors was to bite them so they started to call him Peter "Biter"' then a very gracious family took him in once they reached America he did stay in Maine but the family changed his name from Peter Biter to Peter Bither. He fought for the Americans during the American Revolution and during the war of 1812 he had roughly 9 children I believe and since his family has grown all over the nation off of his children was phineas Bither who traveled out to California during the gold rush. Then the last name changed somewhere down the line from Bither to Byther and the first Byther in my family married my great grandmother when he got back from fighting in Europe during WWII his name was Edward Byther My grandfather was his sone and my grand fathers son is my dad and my dads son is me I now have possession of the family coat of arms. I was really interest to find where he was buried. Thanks

RE: Emerson line ...
Ok, burning the 'midnight' oil ...
James P. Chase is my 4th great grand uncle: his sister, Abigail is my 4th great grandmother (m. James Smith in Sebec 1817). Another line is that Mary Jane Badger Cross is my 3rd great grandmother (m. David Hoxie Cross). My father's grandmother is Alice Gertrude Cross, granddaughter of David Hoxie Cross by his son, Gailon [Galen] Cross).

Emerson line ...
Thanks for your questions! I have not entered all my lines into my Family Tree Maker program nor on line. I will check it and let you know. I know it's on the Emerson line, then Kilgore (great-great grandmother), back and forth through both female and male ancestry to William Brewster. I believe it is through one of his daughters, so perhaps it is Elizabeth! (Double cousins!)

The Hannah Emerson you mention ... when was she born?
