This web is about my family research information and pictures on line. My name is Annette DeCourcy Towler. This is a work in progress of over 43 years with a lot research. If you take a copy please give credit where it is due.  Many, many, many & World Family Trees & World Connect and gedcoms do not have the recognition of who did what. By the way, I have never personally put a gedcom on the sites, but Bill [William] DeCoursey [no relation] of Minneapolis, MN has put my information on and it is not current.

Legal Issue:

 Any pictures found on with the Frank DeCourcy on it, was stolen from this site.  Have asked they be removed and they have not.  Not IMPRESSED with supposedly cousins actions.

Please do not take pictures from this website to use at or any other site without my or my brother's  personal permission. See e mail below. If you do you will be subject to a lawsuit as it is illegal to take pictures and put them on another site without owners permissions.  My brother and I own these pictures not you.


DNA Results

DNA tests in the recent year have been taken in the DeCourcy line and the Mains line. See Coursey/DeCoursey DNA for results under William DeCoursey b. 1756, Group X R1b. We are NOT related to the Dutch family from New York [Bill DeCoursey of Minneapolis, MN] or the Maryland Family of DeCourcy's.   The Mains/Maines line,  see DNA Mains  under the blue I2b section. 

NEW:  have found the father of William DeCoursey/cy b. 1756 Baltimore County or city, Maryland.  Thanks to a Georgia researcher on Nov 11, 2011.  What a break thru and have more information.   Looks like our ancestor came to Baltimore area from Switzerland a Leonard Decause.

The Our Ellis & Watts line has been published in "John Watts & Lucy Dalton"  by Lori Watts Linnell.

The paternal line of families of DeCourcy/sey Ellis, Mains, Lewis, Spilman, Ball, Davis, There is  a relationship chart for the Ball & Ellis family and information of the Downman on this page. 

The maternal line of families of Pack, Chandler, Wheeler, Fairchild, LeMasters, Jayne, Layne, Milliam/Miller

Both the DeCourcy and the Pack families settled in 1914 in Redwood County, MN near Walnut Grove. (Laurel Ingalis Wilder books refer to Walnut Grove/Little House on the Prairie, TV series) The Pack farm (North Hero Township) is still in the family, in 2014 will become a MN century farm, is two miles straight east from the Ingalis farm)  My mother and her sisters used to play at Ingalis farm when they were growing up. They would ride Jack [the horse] back and forth.
