Bio and Links
Bio Photo Interested in family history the good and the bad.
Alot of my ancestors and KIN are in Weston West Virginia and some are in New York or more to the point Long Island New York.
I hope to record all this and pass it down to the next generation of my family. Sadly I cant find anything past my dads parents. The only thing I know is they came from Canton China. Plus two of my family memebers are dead and now the door even closes more of where my chinese ancestors come from. Out of 7 now only 4 remain to tell our chinese story.

Hi if you any of you want to use any of the pictures I have taken please take but also tell people where you got them from thats all thanks
Oh I am also interested in findagrave so people know where people are buried I find it sad there are markers that are no longer readable and they are strangers in the cemetery.

Please disregard the edit I sent for her birth place. I had the wrong person.

RE: Iona's
Hello again ---- She wrote a book, probably under her first married name after losing her family. Her husband and son died in a car accident shortly after they lost a daughter. It might have been called "Triumph through Tragedy" --- not certain, though. Maybe more info can be located, including her maiden name.

RE: SWISS??
Please use my email joaniep13@gmail.com so we can discuss this some more. I am searching for info on Ancestry.com and I am happy to share with you whatever I find. Some of these grandparents (going back further) were born in Germany. The part of Switzerland they ended up in is right on the German border, so that's not unusual. I would imaging they came to Virginia for land they could farm, like everyone else, and to flee from a civil war that happened in that town at that time (found info on Google)...to start an exciting new life. I haven't found burial places yet....still looking.

RE: SWISS??
I haven't had time to research & verify all this yet, but it seems that Anna Schaub (1719-1780) had a brother Jacob b.1714 Switzerland d.1771 Virginia, a sister Elizabeth b.1716 Switzerland d.1780 Switzerland, & a brother Martin b.1721 Switzerland d.1792 Virginia.(So 3 of the 4 emigrated to Virginia, but Elizabeth stayed behind?)

Anna married Hermanus Shook b.1718 Switzerland d.1789 Virginia and they had 12 children, all born in Virginia.These might not be correct: Lawrence (1737-1796), William (1745-1811 died in Tenn.), John (1747-1790), Herman(1749-1824), David (1751-1820), Peter (1752-1824 died in Ohio), Harmonous (1754-1824), Priscilla Mary (1755-1815 died in Illinois), Elizabeth (1760-1801), Katherine (1764-1838), William (1767-1840), and John (1775-1849 died in Ohio)

So, most of their descendants stayed in various counties of Virginia that all became West Virginia.

"When Anna Schaub was born on January 31, 1719, in Basel, Switzerland, her father, Jacob, was 38 and her mother, Barbara, was 29. She married Hermanus Shook and they had 12 sons and five daughters together between 1713 and 1775. She then married Peter Shaver on May 21, 1740. She died in 1780 in Virginia, at the age of 60."

This info is on Heritage, but I'm sure some of the children are duplicates and need to sort it all out.

Anna's father:
Jacob Schaub
Birth August 22, 1680 in Basel, Basel-Town, Switzerland
Death 1724 in Wittinsburg, Bassel, Switzerland

Anna's mother:

Barbara Wurtz
Birth 1690 in Benken, Canton Basel, Switzerland
Death 1769 in Virginia (now West Virginia), United States

RE: SWISS??
Hi Micah, I'm glad you're as excited as I am to discover all these ancestors! This is FUN!! Which grandmother are you referring to? I've worked on so many in the past few days, I'm dizzy. Is it Catherine Shook?

My Mom lives near me, here in San Diego, California and never knew any of her relatives except her mom, born in Weston, West Virginia. I went there with her in 1968 to bury "Grama Bell" and just last year, I was in West Virginia again and visited her grave in Buckhannon. Until now, I haven't known anything except that she was Irish and her father was Bascom Morrison.

NOW I'm finding dozens of great grandparents...amazing stories! The Switzerland connection was a major surprise, They were German (not Jewish) and my mom didn't know she had any German or Swiss ancestors at all. (I've been there, right near that little town, and it's beautiful.) Let me look up stuff 7 get back to you with more info.
