Over the past thirty five years, our extended family has researched, identified, located, and documented our direct lineage ancestors and their inter-married collateral families. In this regard, Find-A-Grave has provided an excellent forum in which to research, identify, locate, document, link and to share generations of families with their ancestors and to their descendants.
We are interested in the relationships between these families before they emigrated to America, whereever, and if any, and in the new relationships they forged with allies, neighbors, social and political alliances, through their marriages, in the art of business, trade, economics and commerce, throughout the politics of war, and in their migrations over time.
Our keen interest is in linking our direct lineage ancestors to their immigrant ancestors from generation to generation.
In this endeavor, we strive to share as much documented known information about each ancestor for whom we have created a memorial with the express purpose of sharing what is known to enable other researchers to identify those members within their and within our own common intermarried families.
To be sure by the third generation our ancestors may also be your ancestors, and if we kindly decline a request for a transfer it is simply because our direct lineage ancestors are in common to your family and the memorial already created may simply be edited with your additional biographical information or your family photographs you may wish to share with others interested in our families.
To this end, if we have created a memorial for a common family ancestor and you have additional documented biographical information you'd like to add, please email and we will be happy to add your information and to cite you as a source. If you sponsor a memorial we have created for a common ancestor, we take this opportunity to thank you for your consideration of our efforts and acknowledge your generosity. If you have kindly donated your time, efforts and diligence in searching a cemetery to aid us in documenting through photographs our ancestors, we are gratefully indebted to you.

Our legions of ancestors include ministers in every known Christian religion of the time in early colonial American history.
