William Hastings, your 15th GGF
William was beheaded by Richard of Gloucester (later Richard III) for his stance on the succession of Edward V. Edward V was placed, with his brother, in the Tower of London and quietly disappeared (died) They became known as "The Princes in the Tower" Shakespeare immortalized this in his tragedy of "Richard III". Some thought Margaret Beaufort was responsible for their death, some Richard III. The controversy over this is still not resolved. In fact, the I saw a photo that shows a man pointing his finger and saying, "I tell you for the last time, Margaret Beaufort did not kill the Princes in the Tower!" said Jean Luc Picard. The author of this is saying that an incident in the 16th century won't be resolved in the 24th.

Samuel R Lewis

Are you a relative if the Samuel R Lewis that is buried in Summit View Cemetery in Ottawa, IL? If you are, I came across an article about him that I'd like to send to you in case you haven't seen it already. Or you can see the article on the Summit View website under the notables, just click the link under Samuel Lewis.

Common Ancestor

Hi, I am active on and Today I came across your name (noting that he is a long time great grandfather)on John Strutt's Findagrave's site noted below. I am wondering if you have a tree on Ancestry. If you do, I would be interested in sharing information.
Thank you, Libby

Mary Launce Sherman
There are a few errors in Mary's information.
First, she was born in Cornwall, England abt 1620. Her parents were Issabella Darcy Launce and John Launce. Her parents never left England. There is very good info from the parents that prove my position. Mary's mother left a will in which she left some things to her daughter, Mary.

Remember that the Mayflower did not land in Plymouth until Nov of 1620. As well, Watertown, Mass. was not founded until 1630. There as a small settlement there under another name. You can gogle Watertown Mass and see the info as to the previous name of the settlement.

to see the genealogy of Mary, just google Issabella Darcy m. John Launce. Then click on one of the first results which will read: Issabella Launce (Darcy) ... much of the info I mention will pop right up.

Mary probably married young in England and undertook the crossing to America with her husband. He may have died enroute or shortly after arriving in America. This was likely after 1638. Mary and John Shermen met in Watertown in the early to mid 1640s. They were married in 1645.

Mary came from an aristocratic family (the Darcy family) and going even further back is a fascinating journey through French and English aristocracy and royaly. I have the entire line back to before Charlemagne.
