Welcome to our website
The Internet has made possible one revelation after another about
our family. We keep making new discoveries
and have created this website to share them with other family members
and interested people.
Glayshers from Hampshire and Surrey,
England, fought and died in WW I or served in India and emigrated to
Canada and the
US in the 1920s and '30s.
Our Stuck forebears settled on the Pennsylvania
frontier in the early 1750s, soon temporarily displaced
by the French and Indian War, with a few scalped and massacred in 1781, and served in the
Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and WW II.
Great-great grandpa Benjamin McCalla may have lived through
the infamous Andersonville Civil War camp for Union soldiers.
John Jacob Mickley, of Huguenot lineage, helped save the Liberty Bell from being melted down
by the British in September 1777. "BECAUSE no People can be truly happy, though under the greatest
Enjoyment of Civil Liberties, if abridged of the Freedom of their Consciences, as to their Religious Profession and Worship."
-- Charter of Privileges, William Penn,
Carl Vugrinec, a Croat and Catholic from the ancient city
of Varazdin, demobbed from the Austro-Hungarian Empire's
army in 1919 prior to bringing his family to the United
States through Ellis Island.
A heartfelt word of thanks to all family members who have
sent me photographs and information. Feel free to download, print off,
whatever family branch or pictures and documents you're interested in.
If you have any other legal documents, such as marriage and death certificates,
passports, citizenship, etc., I'd love to receive a copy of them!
In 2010 my son had his genome DNA tested showing the
Paternal Haplogroup reaches back to
Gascony in Southern France and
the Basque Region of Spain, as far back as 20,000 BCE,
the time of the paintings in the Lascaux and Altamira caves.
The result should be applicable to other Glaysher descendents.
