      A fun site I found:          Create a Timeline
           lets you see what was happening during any time period you choose.

Alana,Alyssa & Noah have separate individual trees from Ryan as they are descended from two different wives I've had. I've used many various sources to gather info. I try to be as accurate as possible, but this is a project for my 'kids', and I make no claim to complete accuracy. This is a 'working' file.
So Many Ancestors...........................SO LITTLE TIME!

Mutual Relatives of Ryan, Alana, Alyssa, & Noah

Connections of Interest:

   
Carlson     This is actually one of my main first lines, since I was really born a Carlson. This line was first researched by cousin Peggy, and later, her niece visited Sweden.
   
Braswell
Seward
Phillips
    These lines are documentated back to colonial Virginia (mostly Brunswick county). Most that left, went straight to western Tennessee, and my Braswells went into northern Mississippi, and then most to south-central Arkansas.
Details here about a new book on the Braswells of Brunswick county, Virginia.
There is controvery above Jesse in Brunwick co, Va.
   
Holt     A very distant connection to the Clantons of OK Corral fame.
   
President
George Washington
    For a good joke, check out our connection.
   
Lancaster
Tigner / Tignor
    These are well documented lines, but our exact connections still elude me.
   

 
My ancestors must be in a witness protection program!

Connections of Interest:

   
Sweet
Williams
Walker
    A distant connection to Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone With The Wind
   
Varnado
Varnadoe
    A real French connection. Includes 'passports' needed to enter Indian lands.
   
Walker     Lost connections to Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin
Mary, Queen of Scots, and her parents Mary of Guise and James V of Scotland
   
Hale     'Southern line', from Virginia, not directly related to 'the' Nathan Hale of fame, but still certainly a most proud heritage in the formation of America.
This Hale line was believed to be traced back to 1400 in England and Scotland by relative Josephine Sellers, but her notes has been lost for some 20+ years.
   
Leal     This line came from Spain through the Canary islands, and by decree of the King of Spain, were given the title of 'Hildago', the equivalent to English 'Knight', and sent to settle the area of now San Antonio, Texas.
   
Lee     One, or more, link is needed to connect our Robert Washington Lee to Henry 'Light Horse Harry' Lee, and his son Gen. Robert E Lee
Here are copies of a letter showing the relationship.
   
I'm not stuck, I'm ancestrally challenged.

 

Relatives Unique to Ryan

Connections of Interest:

   
Littlefield     Relation to George Washington Littlefield, Confederate Major, cattle baron, and founder of Littlefield, Texas.
   
Boykin     Through the Gwaltney line the connection is made back to Royalty of Europe, and the reign of Charlemange. This line includes Marcus Antonius (Cleopatra's Mark Antony) and beyond to some 91 generations. This 'tree' is for fun and not to be considered absolute accurate at this time.
   
Sansom     The Sansom families have been patriots in several wars, Texas Independance, and as Texas Rangers.
   
A family reunion is an effective form of birth control!
