|I am researching the surnames ALLEN, BATES, BREWSTER, BROOME, BRYANT, CARPENTER, CHIPMAN, COBB, COOPER, CROCKER, CUDWORTH, CUMMINS, DALRYMPLE, DOANE, DUNHAM, EDGINGTON, ELLENWOOD, ELLIOT, FAY, FORD, FORTUNE, GAMER, HALL, HELLER (HELMER), HENNING, HICKS, HILLIARD, HINCKLEY, HOAGLAND, HONOR, HOPKINS, HOWLAND, HUXTABLE, JOHNSON, JOURDAINE, KINGSLEY, KIRSTEN, LEE, LEWIS, MERRITT, MORTON, NELSON, NICKERSON, OEGLESCHLAEGER, OLDHAM, PITMAN, PRATT, PRINCE, RICHARDSON, RING, ROBBINS, ROBERTS, SCHIFFER, SCHWARTZ, SHAW, SENEFF, SHIAR, SILVESTER, STRAYER, STUDLEY, THOMAS, TILLEY, TORREY, TOWER, TURNER, TREFRY, WATSON, WILBER, WILLIAMS, WYMAN, AND ZAHREND.|
Most of my family eventually settled in Ohio.I am trying to document how they arrived there.If you have descendants with these surnames, please contact me to exchange information.
One of my interests at this time centers around the STRAYERS.I have links to Peter STRAYER born 1770 in York PA who married Catherine SENEFF in 1797.They moved to Stark Co. Ohio in 1815, then on to Lucas Co., Ohio in 1832.They had seven children, 4 sons and 3 daughters.I am looking for information about their parents and when they arrived in this country from Germany. I have information on the STRAYERS burried in SWAN CREEK CEMETERY.
My ancestors also include the BATES who arrived in Lake County Ohio from Massachusetts after the Revolutionary War.Benjamin and his son Caleb BATES served in the War of the Rebelion and received land in Ohio as a pension. Do you have any information about Caleb's daughter, RELIEF BATES?
I am also interested in documenting my link to the MAYFLOWER through my gg-grandmother DELLA TREFRY, born 1849 in Michigan.Her parents were WILLIAM TREFRY and SOPHIA ROBBINS, both born in 1812 in Nova Scotia.SOPHIA ROBBINS was the daugher of RUFUS N. ROBBINS, born 1790 in Massachusetts, and LETITIA WYMAN, born 1791 in Nova Scotia. RUFUS N. ROBBINS was the son of JAMES ROBBINS and SHERAH RING.
I am happy to share information about my ancestors with you.
Feel free to drop me a line if you want information I have collected on any of the above surnames listed. Also, feel free to send information you may have my way, or just ask a question.Thanks!
