|The information compiled here has taken me about 5 years to complete. I hope that my family and extended family members visit this site and explore it. Our family history is rich and varied. We go from early Virginia (Cpt. Stephen Gates) to Salem, MA (the Proctors) to Block Island, Rhode Island (Tristrum Dodge, the Rathbones/Rathbuns, Peter Noyes)in our distant history. My son's (Chris) wife's (Mary)history is exciting as well. Her great+ grandfather was Captain James Cook who served under George III and sailed throughout the Pacific.|
I love the quote by Emerson:
