|Rebecca Poertner||James Botkin, b 1798|
I live in Eldon, MO. James Botkin b. 1798 is my 3rd Great Uncle. My family line, I believe, is James was the brother of my 3rd great grandfather, Charles Botkin, b. 1796. (our connection) Charles, married Serena Allen, and they were the parents of William Wesley Botkin, my second great grandfather. William and wife Susannah, and several of their family members, are buried in Hornsby, Macoupin Co., Illinois. William was the father of Luther Leon Botkin, my great grandfather, born in Honey Bend, IL in 1867. He married Mattie E Fiser, and together, they had my grandfather, Warren Loring Botkin, b 1893 in Mt. Vernon, IL. Warren married Lillian Marie Scales, and they had my mother, Betty Louise Botkin 6 Mar 1926. Mom married McKinley Combs Jr. b. 1921 in Lothair, KY. I was born in Long Beach, CA in 1958.
How's my dot connecting? I believe this makes us 4th cousins.
