Purpose: To present the Dungan information from the text, Ancestry of Jeremy Clarke of Rhode Island & Dungan Genealogy, on the World Wide Web.
Current & Proposed Activities: Due to the positive response from the online Dungan community, I've decided to shift the emphasis of the MyLines site from my own family line to that of all the descendants of William and Frances Latham Dungan. This will be evidenced by replacing the reference to Robert Johnstone and Mary Parsons Dungan on each page, with a more appropriate reference to William & Frances, two names we can all relate to.
The new goal of the MyLines web site is to present the entire ancestry and genealogy of the Dungan family as first compiled by Alfred Rudolph Justice in his work, Ancestry of Jeremy Clarke of Rhode Island and Dungan Genealogy, and published in 1922.
When appropriate, I will add information from other sources, but always using the Justice work as the foundation for this site. Other information could include published works and/or images of documentation. Formal images of descendants, such as those in the Justice work, might also be included.
I intend to streamline the current and future pages by removing the surname and additional resources links and adding them to this page. I will add a sources link ( done ) that will produce a new window listing the sources referenced by Justice. I will also include the entire index and intend for it to be hyper-linked to each individual; that's a major project so don't look for it soon.
Documentation: I intend to adhere to the following standards of genealogical accuracy: GO. The following are examples of undocumented conjecture found in published Dungan material:
1. William Dungan is the son of Thomas,
of Lincoln's Inn.
2. Lewis Latham is the son of John Latham, Jr.
3. Francis Drake is the son of Robert Drake of the Drakes of Drakesworth.
╗ Second Source: The information contained in the Justice work is what is known as second source. While we read about what an individual left to his heirs, we don't see the actual will. Most of the information presented at the MyLines site is second source, though the Justice work has an extensive listing of sources he used. The responsibility for verifying the information found here with original source materials belongs to the individual researcher. I intend to post original facsimile source materials and/or transcriptions to the site as I find them.
page 2 from the text
presenting this genealogical history to the public, a few explanatory remarks
are necessary for a full understanding of the text.
number preceding the name always refers to this person and identifies said
person from any other of the same Christian name.
number in immediately following the name refers to said person's parentage.
ease with which the ancestry can he traced will be apparent. Take for instance
822, we find he is the son of 316, Thomas Dungan. It will not be necessary to
consult the index and go through fifty or more Thomas Dungans to find the right
one. Simply refer back to 316, and you have the Thomas you are
after. * see

authorities or sources of information, a list of which is given in this volume,
are referred to by bracketed numbers.

of the records have been supplied by descendants from their family Bibles or
papers. To those who have assisted in this way, the writer takes this
opportunity of expressing his thanks.
original records from abroad were obtained by the writer with the assistance of
two professional genealogists, the late Lieut. Perceval Lucas, and Miss Edith
Eliot, of Shenstone Lodge, Codrington Hill, Forest Hill, London, England, both
of whom the writer found to be careful and reliable.
American records were copied with care from the usual sources: Church registers,
grave stone inscriptions, wills, Administrations, Orphans Court records, Deeds,
etc., and, as above mentioned, from family Bibles.

information concerning branches of the family which have been omitted.
books mentioned in the list which follows, with a few exceptions, will be found
in the following libraries: Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Genealogical
Society of Pennsylvania, Mercantile Library, Philadelphia Library, Ridgeway
branch, Free Library of Philadelphia and New York Public Library.
New Navigation Feature: same as above but using HYPER-LINKS.
I have begun to hyper-link the generations in order to make following a particular line very easy. In the example listed above, the reference #316 would be hyper-linked back to Thomas Dungan, the father of #822.
Here's a working example; this page will come up in a new window though that won't be the case at the main site:
2710. Robert B. Johnstone, M. D. 1310: son of Robert and Mary Parsons (Dungan) Johnstone, b. March 17, 1856, living 1916, in Hyattsville, Md., where he connected with the Military Academy of this place.
In time all names will be linked in the above manner as well as from "issue" and following your line should be a snap.
LATEST UPDATE: the Fourth & Fifth Generations 125 to 758. Pages 162 through 226 of the text, including these additional names: Yerkes, Hill, Rundle, Stephen, Gillam, Howell, James, Longshore, Hart, Johnson, Jenkins, Roberts, Boileau, Van Court, Wilson, Percy, Harris, Gill, Wright, Davis, Kirk, Lefferts, Wilkonson, Folwell; among others.
I continue to update earlier pages from the old format to the new.
The ATOMZ Search Engine has been up for quite a while. As new material goes online the search engine will generate a new index to keep it current. I'm looking at another search engine that will notify the user when there is new material posted as well as generate a site map. If I think it is an improvement over the current engine, I'll put it to use.
Viewing: These pages are best viewed in Microsoft's Internet Explorer using a screen resolution of 1024 x 768. I have the "text size" (see the view menu) set to "smaller" and everything looks the way I intend it to look. I am not an html code wizard, I can only hope that your pages have a neat and balanced appearance.
ADDITIONAL RECENT UPDATES:Descendants: These are Surname and Name indexes as generated by Millennia Corporation's Legacy Family Tree. The information is entered as compiled by Justice.
New Project in the Works: Thanks...to the generosity of Cousin Irene from Washington state who sent an original copy of Folker's paper entitled, The Dungan Family of Eastern Pennsylvania, Levi Dungan, The Westmoreland Pioneer. This paper was first presented to the Bucks County Historical Society in 1909. It has been referred to in the past as "somewhat embellished" and perhaps it is. I do know that it is interesting reading and trust you will enjoy it.
View the title page here: Folker STILL WORKING ON THIS ONE.
Sources: pages 3 through 9. All on one page and a bit slow to load, but worth the wait. Sources:
