Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a direct descendant of several notable ancestors through my father's side of the family including:

* Lieut. Joseph Kellogg (1626-1707), who emigrated to America prior to 1653 and became an early proprietor of Hadley, MA. He is my 9th great-grandfather.

* James Cutler (1606-1694), who in 1634 landed at Watertown, Colony of Massachusetts, North America. He is my 10th great-grandfather.

* Deacon Samuel Chapin (1598-1675), who emigrated to America in 1638 and is one of the founders of Springfield, MA in 1641. He is my 11th great-grandfather.

The oldest ancestor I am aware of is Nicholas Kellogg (1488-1558), who was the son of Nicholas Kellogg, Lord of Audley. He is my 13th great-grandfather.

My wife is a direct descendant of:

* George Soule (1593-1679), who is one of the Mayflower Pilgrims, who landed in America in 1620. He is her 10th great-grandfather.

* John Alden (1598-1687), who is one of the Mayflower Pilgrims and said to be the first person to set foot on Plymouth Rock in 1620. He is her 11th great-grandfather.

Other notable persons in our family tree include:

* Harry Foster Chapin (Musician) is an 8th cousin once removed of my paternal grandmother

* Mary Chapin Carpenter (Musician) is an 8th cousin once removed of my paternal grandmother

* Will Keith Kellogg (Founder of Kelloggs Cereal) is a 4th cousin 5 times removed of my father

As I have worked towards building our family tree the "Find A Grave" web site has been an invaluable source of information. And because my hobbies include photography and genealogy, I am gladly volunteering my efforts to try and photograph gravestones in my area.
