The Jefferson-Taite FamilyUpdated March 7, 2001
|We are a Missionary Family, just returning home to Australia after a working holiday of 1 year in the United States.|
We were living and working in Rockland Maine.
Renee's family tree appears here and seems to be reasonably accurate. It was taken from research provided by her sister Jennifer Brown from Florida. Renee's maiden name is Rogers and the tree is complete for about 6 generations back to ancesters from Belfast, Ulster in Northern Ireland.
Rex's family tree also relatively complete, also back to ancestors in Down Patrick, Ulster. Except for a name change by Rex's grandfather, that seems to throw the trail somewhat. The grandfather's name was William John Tait, born London, England circa 1877. It appears that he added an "E" to make the surname Taite, he also used the stage alias of Jefferson, as an actor. Rex has taken this name since and has a legal name change to Jefferson-Taite.
As the chart originally was started for our nephew James Brown, he appears as the main name on this tree. To view the complete chart follow the instructions and use the "F" key and scroll down to Benjamin or Hunnah Jefferson-Taite.
