Welcome to Our Home Page - the link to our Family Genealogy. These families represent a part of the Great Migration to America from mostly Great Britain and Germany and the Greater Migration to the West. The ADAMS progenitor was born in New Jersey and was a Michigan Pioneer before his son went to Dakota Territory as a pioneer. Our DANIELS ancestor came from England, served in the Civil War, and homesteaded in Dakota Territory. The BROWNS began their western migration after the Revolutionary War from Connecticut to New York and Michigan Territory. The ARY family originated in Virginia and migrated to Ohio, Illiois and Iowa. Four brothers served in the Civil War for Illinois.
The THOMPSON and WHEELER families settled in Cherokee County, Iowa. The Thompsons migrated from Norway and the Wheelers were early New England settlers.
The RUDOLPHS arrived from Germany before the Revolution and settled in Tennessee and Kentucky. They intermarried with families who were in Jamestown. The KNEPPERS also arrived from Germany, but settled in Pennsylvania. They intermarried with families from Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Descendants of these families settled all across the United States. Their stories are contained on my websites. Pictures, documents and sources are included whenever possible. Enjoy this information and let us know if you recognize anyone!
