I'm very glad I happened upon your webpage! I am from the Teague branch and it's pretty amazing to see the tree go all the way back to 1735
I would be happy to update you on the branch since 1941, as it stops there when Vernell Teague married Conrad Dyer

Thank you for all of your hard work on this!!

Paul

Admin reply: Hi, Paul —

So nice to hear from you. I'm guessing we're probably 6th or 7th cousins, although I can't say for sure until I know exactly how you fit into the family tree. And you're local, too!

I would definitely like to take you up on your offer to get updated details on your branch of the family. I will contact you by direct email within a few days.

Thanks for visiting my website!

cheers,

Kirsty, does the death certificate for Catherine Caruthers (Roney) in 1894 confirm that she is the daughter of James Roney and Catherine Balmer? Or could she be Catherine, baptised 28/01/1833 in Mokton, the daughter of James' brother Arthur Roney and Ann McMurran? She's listed as niece on the 1851 census. My branch is the McMurrans, so I haven't investigate the Roneys in so much detail.

best wishes David Douglas

Admin reply: Hi, David —

Yes, the death certificate confirms that Catherine's parents were James Roney and Catherine Balmer (no guesswork involved)! Although considering she was nearly the same age as her cousin Catherine (daughter of Arthur Roney and Ann McMurran), I can understand why you wondered.

Thanks for visiting my website!

Hi Kirsty
We've corresponded before through Genes Reunited but I haven't visited your site before. I see you've still no evidence that my ancestor (Robert Haining) and yours are related, which is a shame. I'm not sure how we could ever do that. But I'm very impressed with your website!
Best wishes
Colin :)

Admin reply: Hi, Colin!

It's nice to hear from you again. :o

As you know, it's extremely challenging trying to connect families when the records just aren't there. I've spent a lot of time tracing descendants, checking out the middle names for clues to see if they related to ancestor surnames, and I've just had no luck with my Haining branches. (I have successfully managed to identify a few other branches that way, however.)

I don't understand why we can't find ANYONE else from your Haining family, either. :!mad: I know that Mary died in 1858, but I can't find her in the censuses before that. And even though there's a higher mortality rate, it seems a bit incredible to think that the entire family could be wiped out before 1841 (except for your Janet and the single Mary).

On my side, I have a real scarcity of information as well. But I'll keep plugging away at it. I continue to connect non-related Haining family lines and that helps, too, if not immediately.

Thanks for visiting my website!

cheers,
Kirsty

Hi, found your entries on the Absolom family from Tasmania. I am presently researching this family for my brother in law, who is an Absolom.
His family starts with William and Eliza Murray married 1839 in Hobart.
He now lives in SA with his family, but all of his relatives have stayed in Tasmania. Any help you can give will be appreciated.
Thanks
Dianne :p

Admin reply: Hi, Dianne —

My Absolom connections don't go back as far as your brother-in-law's ancestry, but I'll send you what little I have. Expect to hear from me by direct email very soon!

I just found all of your information on Benjamin Richmond and his family. This is the first info that I have been able to find about him, and the earlier generations. Would you be willing to share sources with me?
Thank you.

Admin reply: Hi, Shannon — Thanks for visiting my website!

Since you don't specify which Benjamin Richmond you're talking about, and as I have over half a dozen different ones in my tree, I can't be too specific in my answer. In general, though, much of the information on earlier generations of Richmonds came from Joshua Bailey Richmond's work "The Richmond Family 1594-1896: And Pre-American Ancestors, 1040-1594" (Boston, Massachusetts: Published by the Compiler, W. B. Clarke & Co. Agents, 1897).

I'll contact you by direct email.

Hello.
I found your website when I googled Jane Rodger Pollock who you have as married to Hugh Campbell Muirhead Sharp. I am very interested to know if you have any records of Jane's birth because I cannot find one anywhere.
There is a bit of a controversy in the family as to whether Jane actually existed or whether it was her sister Janet Amos Pollock who married Hugh. All three of her marriage certificates show her name as Jane but in Scotland someone named Janet could be known as Jane. The family in NZ knew her as Aunty Jean, which just adds to the confusion as both Janet and Jane can be called Jean as a nickname.
I have digital copies of the birth certificates of all the Pollock children except Jane but there are a number of things that I am confused about and would very much like to discuss further with you via email
Hoping to hear from you
Devorah :)

Admin reply: Hi, Devorah —

Thanks for visiting my website. I don't know how much help I can be to solving this controversy, but I'll send you a direct email and we can discuss the matter. Expect to hear from me soon!

My grandfather, James Alexander Sim, was born in Banff, Scotland, not New Zealand.He went to sea about aged 13 ending up in New Zealand. He worked on a railway tunnel through the North Island. He enlisted in the NZ Army and fought in WW1. Was gassed at the Somme and was was left with one lung. Returned to Scotland after the war, but finding it too cold for him he returned to New Zealand. My grandmother, Mary Thompson was on the same boat with her mother and one of her sisters. Mary was on her way out to marry but decided my grandfather was more to her liking and married him instead. Her sister returned to Scotland. My great-grandmother died the same day as Mary's first child, Elizabeth was born in 1923. She is buried in the New Plymouth cemetery.

Admin reply: Hi, Johan — Thanks for visiting my website, and for the updates on your grandfather. Unfortunately, the email address you gave me bounced, but I'd very much like to correspond with you. Please use the link at the bottom of the page to contact me directly. Thank you!

Edna KAUFMAN (B. 1873 Illinois D. 1953 The Dalles)

Stumbled across your website while I was researching some of my family that moved to Oregon. I see you have Edna's last name as unknown. Edna was born as Edna M. DOYLE. Daughter to Michael DOYLE and Sylinda BEERS. Michael DOYLE was the son of Patrick DOYLE and Eleanor GRAHM from the Franklin County, PA (actually Chambersburg, PA). My 3rd GGF, Isaac DOYLE was a brother to Patrick DOYLE. There is a nice history of the family in this Book
"An Illustrated History of Central Oregon: Embracing Wasco, Sherman, Gilliam, Wheeler, Crook, Lake, and Klamath Counties, State of Oregon". (page 406). There is a Google Digital version of this book.

Wondering how you are related...and if we could possibly be related.
:D

Admin reply: Hi, Patty!

Thanks for visiting my website.

Sometime in the last couple of months (since I last updated my website), I did learn that Edna's maiden name was Doyle. But I didn't know who her parents were or that her family was mentioned in the Illustrated History of Central Oregon. Thank you for the update — I appreciate it a lot, and you'll see the changes once I update my pages again (probably in about a month or so).

Unfortunately, we connect on opposite sides of the tree, so we're not related ourselves. Your connection is through the Doyles, obviously. My connection is through the wife of Adam and Edna's son Tolbert, Mildred Friedley. She's my 3rd cousin twice removed.

Best wishes in your family research!

cheers,

P.S. I don't know if you're a member of Ancestry or not, but they have a digitized version of The History of Wasco County, Oregon — you might find that book helpful too.

I stumbled across your website looking for information about my grandfather, Winfield Scott Neal, and his marriage to Gladys Cobbs Messinger. I found a California Marriage License for Scott Neal and Gladys Cobbs Messinger. It shows that they were married in Los Angeles on December 4, 1929 when Gladys was 22 and Scott was 29. The 1930 Census shows Gladys and Scott living in Seattle, Washington, with his mother and siblings. I assume that Gladys and Scott were divorced sometime between 1930 and 1934, which is when Scott Neal married my grandmother, Rose Marie Baker. Scott Neal was born December 13, 1899, in Boise, Idaho, and died October 6, 1976, in Boise, Idaho. Do you know when Scott and Gladys were divorced and where they lived at that time. I can't find any divorce records.

Admin reply: Hi, Joseph! Thanks for visiting my website, and for sharing your information on your grandfather. Not only did it fill in some blanks on one of my relative's husbands, but it also revealed some errors in other data I had. So, thank you for that.

Unfortunately, I also was unable to find any divorce records. Did you get a copy of the marriage certificate between Gladys and Scott, though?

I will contact you directly by email soon.

cheers,
