Olan D. Walters and Tommie Jean Ware Family TreeUpdated February 12, 2009
|THIS IS OUR NEW OFFICIAL FAMILY SITE. |
Brothers David Walters and Michael D. Walters are compiling our family tree for the interest and education of our families.
We have compiled research thus far on a total of 103 generations which includes a total of 2795 people and 809 surnames.
Our research spans back on our grandfather Adolphus Walters and great grandfather Moore Leonard Walters ancestral line which extends to 1300 BC and includes famous people such as Joseph of Arimethea, Constatine, Charlemagne and his grandson Pippin of Landin circa 580 AD. From this ancient royal ancestry begins the royal aristocracy of Europe including many who were not just Earls, and Dukes but Kings and Queens of England from William I thru the Platagenet dynasty, the early Prince and Princess of Wales and the Kings and Queens of Castile(Spain), King Louis the I thru Louis VI of France, the early Kings of Denmark, Kings of Germany, Kings of Italy, King of Norway and Sweden and the Burgandy dynasty of Portugal.
On our paternal grandmother Iva Wright's mothers ancestry we have traced her lineage back to 1330 AD to our ancestor Hans Vanghus, of Switzerland or what became Fankhauser.
The surname Walters was originally "Walter" only a few generations ago. Our lineage came from Scotland, Ireland and Germany. We have only been able to accurately trace the Walter lineage back to Jeremiah Walters, who was possibly born in Dobbs County, or Gates County, NC, circa 1780. Jeremiah lived most of his life in Marion County, SC, as a farmer and owner of one of North Carolina's largest plantations at the time. He moved to NC sometime around 1840 and died on his plantation in Robeson County, N.C. His first wife Elizabeth Bethea's family tree whom our lineage is from can be traced back to England.
Our mothers side Tommie Jean Ware includes the Wares of Wares Chapel, Arkansas who settled near the town of Haynesville,LA. Also included in the lineage were the Modisettes also from Arkansas, Hammons (Hammonds), Bateman, Brown, Innes, Lawson, Loftin, Murphy, Peters, Spruill's, Teagues, Thompson, Fletcher's, Swaines, Shepherd,and Lawrences. We can trace much of this line back to Europe.
