The descendants of Deacon Benjamin Tucker, born in Milton Massachusetts in 1705. His family traveled through Middleborough to Vermont: Pittsfield, Royalton, and Orange. Then my ancestor, Adin Tucker, and his wife Judith Brockway Tucker, went to Saint Lawrence County New York where their daughters were born, then to Morrow (Marion) County Ohio and finally to Sauk, Wisconsin, where they founded Tuckertown.
The Bradford and Flint families of Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. Jacob Flint b. 1751 and his father-in-law Samuel Bradford both fought in the Revolutionary War.
The Verree family of Burlington, New Jersey, and Lower Dublin Township, Philadelphia. James Verrier emigrated around 1590 from France, a Huguenot who attended Abington Monthly Meetings etc.
Thomas and related families of Philadelphia (Penrose, Leech, Mather, Johnson, Molony): the ancestors of Mary T. Thomas born 1840.
Pennsylvania Dutch Ancestors from York County, PA and Baltimore County, MD. Note: I have a website for collections of data and surnames from the Bachman Valley (northern Carroll County) and southern York County: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~peppler/maryland/index.html.
Washington County Pennsylvania to Marion/Morrow and Paulding Counties Ohio: descendants of Ebenezer Burt b. 1783. I believe him to be the Ebenezer who was son to Joseph Burt and Jemima Leonard; contrary to the "Taunton Burt" book, their son Ebenezer (a shoemaker like his father) did not marry Margaret Mitchell (that was his brother William), nor did he die in 1821, because he paid taxes on his lands in Somerset Tp, as a resident, until 1824 when he transferred his lands to Arthur Odbert. I believe he moved to Marion Ohio and became Justice of the Peace. (His wife Sarah Leonard I believe to be the daughter of Lot Leonard.)
Descendants of Griffith Bowen of Wales (through Manasseh, Henry, etc). I have personally researched back to Charles Bowen, born November 27, 1807, a son of Dijah. Charles' life and tragic end are described in the book, "The Family of Griffith Bowen, Gentleman, Welsh Puritan Immigrant" by Daniel Bowen.
Descendants of George Hodges of Salem (through Gamaliel, Thorndike, etc). I am fortunate that my great-grandfather Charles Bowen Hodges Senior (born June 29, 1870) is documented in "Genealogical Record of the Hodges Family in New England 1633-1853" by Anson D. Hodges, so I have not taken this line farther myself.
Ancestors of Charles Bowen Hodges, Jr. - many in Salem Massachusetts in the 17th and 18th century.
Descendants of David and Cynthia Williams (nee Williams). David was a descendant of Roger Williams of Rhode Island and Cynthia was a descendant of Richard Williams and Francis Deighton of Taunton, Massachusetts. Their descendants, and their ancestors, can be seen in the list to the left.
Descendants of William Tucker (through George, Manassah, Dr. Benjamin, etc.) My personal research was finished (for now) when I found that Adin Tucker, born 1790, had done me the supreme favor of remarrying at the age of 82 and considerately noting his parents, Woodward Tucker and Lucy Anne Durkee, on his marriage certificate. Way to go!
Descendants of Ludwig Bepler born 1618 in Kinzenbach, Germany. Our Peppler immigrant, John Lewis Peppler, came to Baltimore in time to be found in the 1850 census, and to my delight, Peppler is a rare enough name that the German genealogists were able to find him on their charts - and I was given a gigantic wall chart, going back to the early 17th century, with my John Lewis Peppler noted on it as having gone off to America!
Please do get in touch if you have information to add on these families. Thanks!
