My southern line of Makemsons came to the US about 1890 from Cumberland England. They first settled in Chicago, then moved to Birmingham, AL. The earliest ancestor I have is John Makemson (1788-1863 Cumberland, England), married Ann Howe (1787-1867)on 1/26/1809; they both died in Cockermouth, Cumberland, England; she was born in Threlkeld, Cumberland, England. I have a five page outline descendant report for them (I show his father as Thomas, but have no information on him).
Does anyone have any connections to these Makemsons? And do they go back farther than this date? Thanks, Diane
