I got started researching my family history ......
by trying to find my Great Grandfather's parents.
I have been doing this since I was 12 years old.
I have been doing genealogy since ....
since I was 12 years old; 19 years
We all have them - my biggest brick wall is .......
George Atwood Wilson Jr. Born in Manchester, NH around 1874. He always told his family that he was adopted into the Wilson family-don't know if he was related to family and adopted in or born of a different family. Supposedly there is a birth record with his old papers that has no mother listed no father listed and surname is written as METIS.
Family has reconfirmed him saying his original last name was Martis; found a Marriage record for his mother to a John A. Martis (B. about 1850 in MA to Anthony Martis & Sophronia Batcheller), just need to find more records. >,/body>
By joining Looking 4 Kin I hope to .....
Connect with cousins, help others when I can, break down my brick walls and climb ever higher into my family tree :)
hey no sweat Rene! I just wish I could have been more useful for your quest. Here is something for you though if you find this stuff interesting. In the FernHill Cemetery, there are free mason/stone mason tombs, and I think Higgins might be one of them. If you know what these men were and what kind of reputation they had regarding mystical practices, you never know......theres a masonic temple in up town SJ, its still in use today by the order.
I know this because Last winter I took a trip to Fern Hill to find a man whos factory I found in a swamp one day. When I found him he was buried near the stone masons and important people of SJ.....If I can find it in my photos I will send you a copy ....
I just send some stuff away for you. As for how Sarah Matilda Campbell ties in to Masten's and other stuff, I am going to dive into that soon. Once I get something that resembles your family I will send you what I have found
Where would you like me to start ? is there a surname or area of geography? whtever info you have that you could tell me would be a big advantage. Even the little tiny tidbits of information can be compiled over time giving us a picture .
looks like your on the way to proving another line. When names are missing from this book it just means no one had traced that line as of 1981 so you found his birth to the right couple. Means a proven line congrates. His book list all known children and their spouses that have been sent to the Mayflower society and checked so you may have something new for them to add. LOL congrates
The Information I have is from The Mayflower Ancestral Index Volune 1 in 1981 from the General Society of Mayflower Decendents.
All the information that you sent on the Brewster line seems to be accepted Mayflower Decendents until you get to Nathan Augustus Higgins. As of 1981 printing of the book only one child George Eben Higgins who married Agnes Stinson was proven to the couple Simeon Higgins and Margaret Bell. That doesnt mean that your wrong only that up until that time no one had proven any other children. Since the book is 30 years old alot could now be available for Nathan. If you want to cross reference any of the children born back to William Brewster the Pilgrim as I pulled them all out while researching.
