The Wilhelm/ White/Anderson/ Blush/ Bennett & Malits of PA.Updated September 14, 2002
|I just started my on line research in the Spring of 2002.Most of what I had was from family bibles and letters as well as living people's memories. Then I found that two relatives,one I knew and one I didn't know, had posted Family Trees. They are included as links so you can see their documentation and extended families. They helped me add a few more branches. A third relative, Rebecca Wilhelm McClain, contacted me because of what I had posted to a board.|
I hope to be able to establish facts to some of the stories I have heard since childhood. Such as: We are related to Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany and the White's who came over in the ships called the White Sails along with the Mayflower. My grandfather Blush told a story of one of his relatives being the General who defeated Napoleon at Waterloo. I haven't been able to go as far back as those relatives but I hope to someday.
I know very little about my father's family the Bennetts or my husband, Paul Malits' family. Paul's mother's maiden name was Moose. My father John Joseph Bennett's father outlived several wives but my dad was the youngest surviving child and by the time he was born, most of his siblings were already grown and gone from the home.
I do not have all my resources footnoted as I'm not sure how to do this yet. A lot of it is available in my area since most of the relatives I have found all live in my county or some neighboring ones. That is except the ones in Florida, Texas,Tennasee, Delaware, Maryland, Indiana, Ohio, and California.
If any of you check out my research and have anything to add, please contact me. I try and update this as often as possible.
May God richly bless you and keep you safe. Have a great day.
