Bio and Links
Bio Photo There is allot of work to be done.

When someone says they are a Tenth generation descendant, you may ask them who their other 255 6th Great grandfathers are. ; ). We have 128 4th Great grandparents, 512 6th Great grandparents and 8,192 10th Great grandparents. Last report I have located memorials for 14 of my 10th Great grandparents.


Glad to meet you.

I am on call for memorial photos. I live in Weddington, NC (Union County) This site has been great, as I seem to make new friends and meet many cousins that I may have not known otherwise. My hobbies include photography and genealogy, this site has my interest on both of these. Family ancestor lines keep expanding and I keep learning history.

A brief detour about ancestors discovered.

They are family members. They are immigrants, settlers, innovators, leaders, farmers, shoemakers, plumbers, cattle ranchers, horse brokers, locomotive engineers, planners, household mothers and fathers, stone masons, iron workers, foundry owners, grocers, merchants, infants, tailors, moulders, ice merchants, engineers, builders, developers, realtors, Priests, ministers, deliverymen, cabinetmakers.

Unknowingly, I lived places ancestors had previously settled. A 3rd Great grandfather had emigrated from Bavaria, Germany to Rochester, N. Y., where I was born. Another 3rd Great grandfather emigrated from Saarland Germany to Steuben County, N.Y., near where I went to college. A 6th Great grandfather lived and died in Addison, Vermont, 35 miles line of sight from where our three children were born and raised in Brookfield, VT. The builder of that home was a veteran of the War of 1812. The home was built prior to prior to 1800, the timbers were first growth Spruce, Ash and Maple. Beams over 40-FT, boards wider than 42-IN. Its first owner had moved from Connecticut in 1820, leaving the County my maternal ancestors lived. My 10th Great grandfather settled Stamford prior to 1680. Even now, where I live in the Carolinas, I learn of a Grand Aunt having lived 45 miles from our present home in the Carolinas.

The education continues with military heroics. Learning a 7th Great grandfather was KIA on board on Lake Erie during the French and Indian War in 1756, seeing many ancestors with service in the Revolutionary War. A 5th Great grand uncle, Joseph Turner, a Revolutionary War Veteran is buried in Fort Ann, NY at the Blossom Farm Cemetery. More, reviewing ancestors pension papers for the War of 1812. Reading service records of 2nd Great grandfathers who served in the duration of the Civil War. Hearing from a Great niece of his who has the sabre he used. The opportunity to hold a Great grandfather's military discharge orders from the Spanish American War. Opportunity to read commendations of a Father-In-Law's service in WW II during his 4 years and 4 months service from Northern Africa through Italy and finishes the campaign in Eastern Germany. Meeting a cousin whose Uncle served WW I and WWII as a Medical Doctor. Learning of the citations of ancestors' received during the Korean War. Not to ignore recent military heroes.

This is a journey. Listen to the stories they have.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 136844170
I'm puzzled as to why I would send edit information on a memorial that I created. I didn't even think that was possible.

This entire Knapp thing got me going - I found a wife Delilah Westcott for him - but doubt she is the mother of some of the kids - she married also Nathaniel Dickerson and Nehemiah Slawson - some of my Reynolds family are living with them at various times...I thought at first 2 Nehemiahs and 2 Delilahs, but now think only 1 Nehemiah and he had 2 wives with the same name....its a mess!!
