RE: Ripkens Thank you! I'm actually having a heck of a time researching this line out of Maryland, originally from Germany. My great grandfathers grandmother is Maggie Ripken. It appears her husband (unknown) Ripken died prior to 1900. The eldest child was John, daughters were Anna (my 2x great grandmother) and Carrie and Kate. Thank you for responding!
RE: Dorcas Spear Patterson Source #1 (sparked my interest.) was something on PBS, I think, a documentary on Mary Todd Lincoln and her beaus, and it mentioned her. I descend from Levi Todd, father of Mary (Todd) Lincoln. I am also a Layne/Lane/Hinton/Washington/Carter, etc.Patterson to Layne is one of mine, as well.
I was also interested in the Octagon hHouse, the Tayoes, etc.
(I am also working on a bunch of royal descents of Bourbon line through Acadian ancestors on my mother's side to Jean Theriot.
What I noticed doing research for my group of Texas families, as there were way too many George Washington + surname to be a fad. So I now, know I have many descents from his parents, aunt, and half-brother.
The same thing about Napoleon Bonapaerte, way too many in these TX associate to me, same deal. So I was trying to pull them together. Not there completely, but there are ties.
I haven't gone through British Historical site for them in a while, but I am sure there will be more info to cross-reference.
Gayle’s Notes: From this site about Gilbert Sturat there is an interest in research about people in the portraits, and I may leave a message:
Some of my lines tie to the Tayloes, Carters, Washington, Warner, etc. I watched a tv show on ghosts of The Octagon House. I was so curious...found the site called The Octagon House Haunting (online). Very interesting. Now I am going through Find-A-Grave and gathering all the children's names. There were 15 children, so far,I have seven entered into my database, trying to find out how they all link to my ancestors in Texas. I think, not looking at it at the moment, but through the sister of Jerome and Napoleon: Croline Bonaparte that m. Joachim Murat, their son, Lt. Col. Charles Louis Napoleon Achille Murat m. Catherine Dangerfield Willis (dau. of Col. Byrd Charles Willis b. 1781 m. Mary Willis Lewis) is another connection for me. I am a Col. Henry WIllis m. Mildred Washington descendant,also a William Robert Briggs/Judith Wroe/John Landon/Mary and Hinton descent in many ways.
There were eight (Tayloe)daughters. Now it will drive me to find out which daughters ended up being ghosts. Another one of the ghosts is from a duel.
I love Gilbert Stuart's work. Amazing. I am not sure, but I think he painted a portrait of my ancestor Hezekiah Balch.

I have a site address for the Tudor Women, but lots of info there and portraits.
Alsie Pitcher Thanks so much for the transfer! I appreciate your kindness. I'm sorry I cannot shed any light on your question about the daughter. I did know there was a daughter of the same name, but don't have information about her. I also do not know much about the her husband's family, but am thankful for what you shared. Very interesting to hear about the singing in the church! I know that hymn. Thanks again!
