Direct descendant of Israel Heath and Elizabeth Blue through their son Richard Blue Heath. I have researched and compiled a 600+pg family tree on all 9 children of Israel Heath and Elizabeth (Blue) Heath, and written an oral history of the Heath family migration from VA to MO and points beyond. The original Heath family consisted of 5 sons, 2 daughters. (Joseph, James, Jonas, Zachariah, and Israel, sister Ann Nancy Heath and one unknown sister yet to be found.)
Always happy to hear from other Heath descendants to share and exchange information, collect oral history. I have been working hard on collecting old photographs for preservation of descendants from all 9 children of the Israel Heath line. Please share copies of old photos with me if you are a Heath descendant. I was able to locate photos of two of their original 9 children: a photo of David M Heath, Daviess Co MO and eldest son James Heath. I have placed them on their Find a Grave memorials for Heath descendants to find. Any PHOTOS I have put on Find a Grave, you are welcome to make 'yours'-I put them there on purpose so descendants can find them. Please ADD any old PHOTOS you may have as well.
If you would like a family memorial here transferred to you for maintenance, please contact me through the normal edit tab on the memorial. I'm happy to do so. I'm not stuck on the 4 generation rule but on who is doing the research and will make nice memorials and maintain them.
I also research the following surnames related to me: John Warren family from Heard Co GA into TX, Thomas C Poor family from Delaware County, Indiana into early Butte MT, Augustus Hessel family from Grand Island, Nebraska.
Heath/Sorenson Hi Cameron, Iam related on the Heath side. Just a little background first. I never knew my birth dad. I thought he died before I was born(1934)...no true. Mom married when I was 2 again. I started Ancestry several yrs ago. I knew my dad, Herman had a sisters Jeanette & Irene. My half sisters told me this after Mom died. I found my grandparents, HERMAN R SORENSON, MARRIED TO ANNIE ARVILLA hEATH from Newton, Ohio. Her father was Andrew Jackson Heath and her mother was Irena Elizabeth Fisher Heath. Herman divorced Annie and married a Anna Proceller in 1922. I never did find out when Annie died or what happed to her. They had 7 children, 2 as infants. I found all of them but my dad Herman, only to 1925. I know he was in Navy but can not get any info. In census it on says born about 1911 in NY. All born in NY. Tne Sorenson Tree is Public on line on Ancestry. Thank you. Barbara Sorenson Tascher

Albert Heath descendant My grandparents are Albert and Vesta Anna (Walker) Heath and are both buried in Circleville. I have been interested in the Heath family for years, but living in Lancaster County, PA has made it difficult to do research. This website is wonderful. I was told that Albert's father was James B. Heath, born in 1834 or 1835 in Pickaway County. He married Hannah Brown b. approx 1838, believed to have been born in England. They had 8 children during a very turbulent and abusive marriage and divorced January 7, 1890, which was very unusual at that time. I have a photocopy of the divorce papers filed at the Pickaway County Court House.
The children from this marriage were: William b. 1859 d.1926, buried in Waterloo Cemetery Charles b, 1862 David b. 1864 Edward b. 1866 James b. 1868 George "Gogie" b. 1871 Alice b. 1874 Albert b. 1877 d. 1945
McComas Heath Family I am related to this family somehow through my DNA and my mother's, still trying to figure it all out. I just wanted to say WOW what an incredible job you have done with putting all the information on here.
JANNETT BUTLER CUPP H iCameron-Ashley Heath. We have been to the Peoria cemetery looking for the grave James Monore Cupp and Jannett Buter Cupp with no luck. A lady that lives near Peoria said the graves are there. The main reason I am contacting you is: Wow, check this out! My Grandparents said that Jannett Butler Cupp was in the blood line of the family of George Washington. He did not have any kids of his own. It is the Washington family, like his sister's decedents etc and it is bid deal. There is a group that calls itself the GEORGE WASHINGTON FAMILY. If you find any info on this please let me know. Sincerely, Charles Cupp
