|Our surname (CALVERT) descends from Leonard Calvert, younger brother to the Lords Baltimore I & II.Leonard was the first governor of Maryland, and he led the ships, The Dove and The Ark to America from England.|
GAITHER descends from John GATER.This line has been researched, and documented back to Adam.
The GAITHERS and the CALVERTS knew each other during the later 17th century and early 18th century in America....three hundred years later, my grandfather met my grandmother in Missouri, and the families were once again coupled by marriage
The DAVIS family originally came from Wales.Sanda C. DAVIS is my great-great grandfather.He was born in North Carolina, but I cannot find our DAVIS line going back any farther than him.
The ALSPACH family is European with ancestors being of German descent
This is quite an interesting set of families to trace back in history.I have relatives who fought on both sides during the Civil War, one who fought on both sides and then went AWOL on both sides because one side was starving him to death and someone on the other side shot off his finger while cleaning his gun.Another one was killed during the War and no one knows where his body is buried.
Anyone with links to these families, please contact me so we can share any known information.Thank you.
