"The Peterkin-Goldsborough/Pubusky-Spidel -Brookhaven, PA" Updated June 28, 2004
About Our Family Research
I have been researching our family for about 1 year. I have been interested in geneology for about 25 years, but have not been able to research until now.
Peterkin/Goldsborough = wife's side
With the help of a cousin we now have The Ellingsgaard's (my father's mother's father's) side back in some parts to the 1500's. Awesome!!! We still need work on this line though.
Nicholas Goldsborough was born in Melcomb Regis in 1640,41. He went to Barbadoes in 1669, then to New England and finally setteled in Maryland in 1670. I have not been able to connect my relatives back to Nicholas, but I know that he is the head of the family here in the U.S. (I have an aunt who has done some work here and need to get together with her to connect the branches.) I am able to go back to George Wesley Goldsborough, born btwn 1840-1850 in Maryland. He married Martha McFadden.
I have been able to go back 7 generations on my Grandmother Smithson Goldsborough's side to Elizabeth who married John Huss and had unknown Huss on 11 Apr 1815 in Chanceford, York County, PA.
Pubusky/Spidell = husband's side
I have not been able to get very far with the Pubusky line. Nicholas Pubuskia (Pobihushka)was born in the Ukraine and came to the U.S. in 1909. Mary Cherkas came in 1912. They spelled their name Pubaho
The Spidell side has been put into book form already...so it's easy to just copy the info. What a wonderful heritage!!! I do need to research the Reeder side of this family that setteled in Lunen County, Nova Scotia abt 1895? They came from Southampton, England.
We have a paper bag with the following on it:
Herbert G. Reeder Pastry - Cook and Confectioner English, French & German Bread Baker 88, St Mary's Road Southampton
This bag was from my mother-in-law's grandfather's shop in Southampton.
Please go on Ancestory.com and put in any of the above names to seen my tree.
If you have information on any of the above contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks!! Have a great day in the Lord! ruthie pubusky
