Researching one's genealogy is a bit like a treasure hunt. As you learn more and more about your ancestors, surprises keep occuring. I am thankful to all the people who have taken the time to research the past. I aim to contribute as well. I am working on my Peck ancestry which goes back to Joseph and some of his immigrant sons who arrived in 1638. Other names include Vanderwerker, Van Patten, Shoup/Shoop/Schupp, McNeil, Cramer, Paine, McDougall, Lant, Reid, Campbell, Wagman, Foster, Cushman, Grandy, Bartlett, Haverly, Duesler, Snell, Wendell, Glen, Hawley, Harmon, etc. I get great satisfaction in discovering and entering these historical records, before they are lost for good. Most of my entries are in New york, MA, RI, CT and New Jersey. I am a retired science teacher. I have completed 10 Earthwatch expeditions and travelled to over 60 countries. Climbing mountains is also appealing having been up Kilimanjaro, Whitney, Olympus, Rysy and others. Genealogy is another fun and productive way to spend my time. |
One of my great joys is to visit villages where my ancestors lived before coming to America. In 2010 I visited Hingham and Beccles, England where the paternal Pecks lived in the 1500 and 1600's. We also visited Petten, Holland for the maternal Van Pattens and Meppel, Holland for the Van Alstynes and Vanderwerkers. In 2012 I visited Scotland for the McNeils and Reids and then the Mozel River Valley in the Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany for the Shoups/Schupps and Mais lines.

Good question Dave! Can I have her husband please? I am working on upgrading and linking ALL of the 'Darwin' entries now I have a very good source!!

Thank you for linking Hannah to her parents.
|Rtop||Catherine Macklin Meader/south Argyle Cemetery|
The information for her parents is wrong. In the 1880 census the catherine Macklin from Mass is still living with her parents,Daniel and Eliza in Massachusetts. The catherine Macklin Meader buried in Argyle had her daughter Bertha Meader Conklin in 1877,NY. Also, according to the 1900 census Catherine Macklin Meader's parents were born in NY. Thanks for all the work you do!

Please take very good care of them, as many of the Gillis's in this area are in my genealogy also.
