Sounds like him time and place is right, Roseland is where I grew up in the row housing just a couple blocks from the place Pullman train-cars were made many years ago. Electromotive still was building train engines the last I heard I knew a guy that worked there.

She and I joined a local genealogical society a few years back. They had detailed records...Huxford Geneological Society. We located the entire family tree on her mother's side...all the way to England. It was interesting...we spent several days and hours at that place.

Somehow related to John Wayne. The "Elder" gang portrayed in the movie are also related, but that is not their real name. They wouldn't let J. Wayne use their real name when he wanted to do the movie to clear up their name.

My 3 or 4 time great grandpa was the first documented Cherokee Indian to settle in Houston county Tn. He was running away from being part of the trail of tears. ( it may have been Montgomery county)

Way way back we are related to queen of England. Which is weird because Princess Di was also related but in a different way.

Cousin of Devil Anse Hatfield, Great Great Grandmother was Elizabeth Hatfield his first cousin. My cousin married Robert E Lee, a descendant with same name. We also had some outlaw cousins on that side the family from Iowa, but can't recall the name off top of my head.
Moms side of the family had a few moon shiners, but not really famous to anyone other than the revenuers. Grandpa was a nurse on the actual medic ship portrayed in the Hacksaw Ridge movie.

Wife's Great Grandmother was related to the Wright Brothers, the Studebakers, and Abraham Lincoln.

Have an ancestor, or a brother of my ancestor, who was a horse rustler. He rode with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and there are a couple of photos of him and the Wild Bunch. I didn't know much about him until my son did a school project and found some mug shots, records of time spent in prison, and stories about the Pinkerton Detectives trailing him and a herd of stolen horses. He was involved in the 1900 Tipton train robbery.

Okay, maybe not one to be proud of but at least interesting.

Related to the Hazen family,which was a prominent family in the eastern U.S. in the 18th and 19th centuries.They came over on the Mayflower,fought in the Revolution,was with Washington at Valley Forge.Their name appears on the rolls during many of the prominent Indian wars in the east.That's one side of the family,the other side came from Quebec,most of those records are written in French so we never had them interpeted.There was a lot of intermarriage with different tribes,if I recall right the term "half breed" came up alot.
