Genealogy helps restore the many pieces of the puzzle regarding family connections. Life is defined by the dash between our birth and the time we go to meet our Heavenly Father God.
I am interested in the "dashes" between my ancestors' birth and death beginning with those who came in the mid 1600s - 1700s: The William White family, who came on the first Mayflower voyage and settled in Plymouth, MA. Then the line of families including: Wheeler and Rowe, who first settled in Massachusetts, Brainerd-Brainard from England who settled in Connecticut, Collins who settle on Governor Sprague's property in Rhode Island. The Nicol family from Scotland who settled in St. Lawrence County, Hammond, New York and then settled in Iowa, also the Quaker families of Knowles and Wilber (from NY to Iowa). The Peckenpaughs and Steibers from Germany and then those who came in the 1800s and settled in Wisconsin, Iowa and South Dakota - Childs from England, Steiber from Prussia, Nold from Switzerland, Reiersons and Houge/Hauges from Norway, and Nicholas from Wales; Lastly those who came in 1898...from Denmark namely Christensen and Walther side and Nelsens who settled in SD and later in ND and those from Sweden, Larsson, Nelson,and Carlson families who settled in Big Stone Co. Minnesota and later in Ward County, North Dakota.
"Not to know what
happened before we were
born is to remain perpetually
a child. For what is the worth
of a human life unless it is
woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history"
-Cicero (106-43 B.C.)
