Wonderful information.I would be glad to receive any further info you have on this family.My email is Rob@TheRoyFamily.comPondeat(?) I’m sure is an alternate spelling for Pontiac.
Now I need to connect Major Henry to my family.Family lore (often faulty) states that my Gladwins were descended from Major Henry.I’ve traced my Gladwins back to George Gladwin, who married Elizabeth Gilbert on 19 May 1823 in Youlgreave , Derbyshire.She was born 26 May 1803 in Youlgreave, the daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth (Hardwick) Gilbert.George’s son, Francis emigrated to America and settled in Akron, Ohio.
The question of the day however, is who was George’s father? And was Major Henry is grandfather, great-grandfather, an uncle, or too distant to count?
