About Our Family Research

I have taken up the family search from my late Mother. I am particularly interested in my Grandparents lines back to their homeland and beyond. I have a great deal of information, but there are holes that I would like to fill in. The MCDONALD line is back to Benjamin who came to the US with two brothers(names unknown)sometime between 1750 and 1825. The TRAUTY/DRAUDE line is back to Andrew(Andreas)Draude,b.1820,who came to the US in 1850 from Darmstadt, Hesse. I have positive I.D. on a his children. I have found records of all the children except for Conrad,a twin b.1866. My Gr.Grandfather,Henry Trauty,b.1857,had a candy factory in Baltimore,MD. He was born in MD, but I have not found proof yet. He was married first to Virginia ____ and 2nd to Emma G. Underwood Supplee. Henry had a child with Virginia who was named Will. I know Will's wife's name, but that is all. I have no information about Henry's first wife. Buried in the same plot with Virginia is a Jno. and Lavinia Hughes. These may be Virginia's parents, but I have no proof. I also do not have information as to where Henry and Emma were married. Henry travelled with his business and may have met Emma somewhere other than MD where they lived. The STONESTREET line is back to Thomas Stonestreet who came to the US about 1662. I would like to know more about the Stonestreets in England.
