About Our Family Research

It is my hope that by publishing this information, I will be able to "connect" with other family members to enable a complete and accurate accounting of the following lines:

KOCH-HARE heritage. Jean Pierre "Peter" KOCH was born in Neu-Isenburg, Germany in 1831. He married Dorothea Becker who was born in Hesse D. in 1831. They married in New York City about 1854 and had five children. I am searching for the birth record of Jean Pierre in Neu-Isenburg. Other surnames include: VENO, WARDEN, MAGINNIS, WRAY.

WATSON-WOOD heritage. I have not been able to get past Oliver's grandfather, William WATSON (1818-1903). The other surnames being researched with this line are YEARWOOD, PEELER, and ANTONIO. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated in compiling this "labor of love".

GROOVER-JORDAN heritage. Much of the GROOVER line was researched by my own extended family. This includes PHILLIPS and LEWIS lines, as well as VICKERY, POWELL, McCLESKY, and BURDEN lines.
