Bio and Links


The majority of our families live in the Midwest.

It has been exciting to locate our "roots". It is never done, new ones are added constantly to the growing family tree.
Love talking about our extended families!

Oliver H. Smith
I am researching a Charles H. Smith, also in Clay County, who married a Mary Nation and died in Coles County, Illinois. He may have been born in Canada. Do you know if my Charles is any relation to your Oliver? Thanks much.

Herbert Ellis
I believe there is a miscommunication for my Uncle Herbert Ellis.
The first part of the bio is correct. But Herbert Ellis had the following siblings:

Charles (Charlie) Ellis
William (Bill) Ellis
Grace A. Ellis (my grandmother)
& one other child who died at child birth (I'm sorry I have no name.)

In our Ancestry book we have no entries anywhere for: Grover Cleveland Ellis, Ernest Ellis, Ather Ellis, Earl Ellis. NONE of the siblings belong to our Ellis family.

Last, Herbert Ellis is buried in Terre Haute, IN.

RE: Burwell Jones
Hello, Yes there is a marriage record for Burwell Jones to Nancy Sowers. Nancy was married in 1849 to Wilson Sowers, Eppard/Eppert/Ephest (spelling varies) is her maiden name. She had 4 children with Wilson; Alonzo, William E., George W., and Lon. The 1870 Census, shows Alonzo Sowers as living with her and new husband Burwel Jones. Nancy and Burwel had one child (that I know of) Charles B. Jones (my 2nd great grandfather)

Thor Ellingson
Sorry, Thor's family name is Ellingson. Thor and Hannah's daughter, Lily Thorina Ellingson, married Conrad Martinius Iverson. Conrad and Lily's daughter, Sybel Irene (Iverson) Larson, is my mother.

Bethany Cemetery - Esmond ND
In response to your inquiry, I posted Bethany Lutheran Cemetery records on the memorials of Christ Heltne and of his wife, Anna Hanson Heltne. Also, I identified their spousal relationship. Are you a descendant?

My relationship is through Marie Lybeck Heltne. I am a descendant of Iver Lybeck (1827-1909) and Karin (1829-1911). Their daughter Johanna (Hannah) married Thor Iverson, who owned the Bonnie Brae Dairy at Valley City ND.

You may contact me by email at peka0025@umn.edu

RE: Josiah Smith
I don't have any information about a Josiah Smith. My ancestry goes through John Smith of Wakefield and then of course his father Joshua Smith and his father John Smith (the supposed immigrant). John Smith (who died 1842) is an uncle of mine (4th great grand uncle) and I actually have little information about him except his death announcement in the newspaper. I have not researched his line. I know he had a daughter Mary because of the will of Mary Stevenson Smith (wife of John the immigrant). Is Josiah a son of his?

RE: 73870479 Joseph Smith
He is the son of Joshua Smith and Susanna Wells. also buried in the same cemetery. I just added their family links to his page. Joshua Smith is the brother of the John Smith (d. 1842) to whom you refer, so John would be an uncle to this Joseph Smith.

RE: Morris/Jones
THANK YOU FOR YOUR MESSAGE. I HAVE BEEN TO SELLEYVILLE SEVERAL TIMES LOOKING FOR THE GRAVE OF MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER MARGARET BUT NEVER FOUND IT. SINCE MY RELATIVES SAID SHE WAS BURIED IN CHEEK CEMETERY AND HER PARENTS ARE I CREATED A MEMORIAL. I HAVE BEEN TO HENRY COUNTY KENTUCKY SEARCHING THE FAMILY OF MARGARET HUSBAND WILLIAM WITHOUT ANY SUCCESS. IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON JOHN C. JONES BEFORE 1830 OR AFTER 1870 PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

Nathan Morris / Daniel B. Morris
Hello!, I am the great-great grandson of Daniel Boone Morris (grandson of Nathan). My grandmother, Betty Morris, has always spoken of Cherokee blood from the Morris line. Can you shed any light on a Cherokee bloodline in our family?

Thank you, so much!

Swift & White families
I am writing a book about the Swift Families of Ohio. Thomas Wells White took a party of 18 of his descendants from Barnard, VT to Ohio in 1799. Charles Swift and two neighbors followed in 1800. I have many details about the Swift and White families buried here.
