P.O. Box 203
|I have been researching my family history for the past 40 years. I have tried to document my direct line, but others are only sourced. If you find a mistake, let me know.I will be happy to make the changes if they can be verified. I have published these histories in the hopes that I can contact others researching the same lines. Some branches of my family came to America in Colonial times, some in the late 1800's. They settled in Connecticut, New York and Virginia from there they made their way into Pennsylvania, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. They settled in Clark and Miami Counties in Ohio; Vermillion County, Indiana; Vermilion County, Illinois and Ralls County, Missouri.From Germany and Italy they came to California and settled in the Sacramento Valley. My family comes from England, France, Germany, Italy and other European countries.|
