No one terribly famous, but proud to be one of the Mayflower descendants of 2 families, 3 relatives in the revolution (all Patriots), 7 civil war relatives and a 190 year family history in Wisconsin.

Very cool Charlie!! You've kept that beard in good shape!

Anybody have any Andrews blood line out of colonial Massachusetts...? Mine was supposedly here since the 1660s. I also have Fraser out of Nova Scotia where my grandma came down to Mass about early WWI time. She died when my mom was only 7 or 8 and must not have told grandpa much about her past because my mom didn't even know her grandma's name in NS, only her grandpa's, a Daniel Fraser. We were in NS in the early 1990s and I tried looking up marriage certificates of Daniel Frasers in Antiquish County during about a 15-year target window and only came up with 9, so still don't know my great-grandma's name on my mom's side.

My Kraut side is way newer, only in the US since 1873. German name but one of my cousins who was into genealogy had some evidence that they may have "started" out in the Basque country of Spain, came across southern France (there's a city of my name there but I think the Frenchies pronounce it differently) and into what became sw Germany by the 1300s. Supposedly the German name means "watcher of herds at night" so maybe we're related back to the shepherds of the Biblical days. My immediate people split what would become southwest Germany right at the end of the Napoleonic Wars by going down the Danube to the Black Sea and then becoming good German farmers for the Tsars in south part of their empire (in Ukraine). The people felt better being closer to the Holy Land so maybe they knew something. My people had a good deal from the Tsars for about 2 generations and then the rules changed. My family left the for the USA the same year the rules changed, as did most of their village and a lot of other Germans who were living in the south of the Russian empire.

My parents told me some guy with the last name of Clark shows up in our genealogy. He took a boat ride with a guy with the last name of Lewis on the Corp of Discovery.

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


Very nice.

On my mom's side of the family I'm related to Benjamin Franklin. And on my dad's side his Great Grandfather was a steamboat captain on the Mississippi River by the name of James Ward. Here's a little history on him, Abraham Lincoln was the lawyer against him.

Traced my Dads side back to Scotland, The Bruce was my 23rd Great-Grandfather, not surprising to anyone still surviving that their ancestry somewhere along the line contains royalty, but this story will stick with me. Different times lol

"Sir Henry de Bohun (died 23 June 1314) was an English knight, the grandson of Humphrey de Bohun, 2nd Earl of Hereford. He was killed on the first day of the Battle of Bannockburn by Robert the Bruce. Riding in the vanguard of heavy cavalry, de Bohun caught sight of the Scottish king who was mounted on a small palfrey (ane gay palfray Li till and joly) armed only with a battle-axe.[1] De Bohun lowered his lance and charged, but Bruce stood his ground. At the last moment Bruce maneuvered his mount nimbly to one side, stood up in his stirrups and hit de Bohun so hard with his axe that he split his helmet and head in two . Despite the great risk the King had taken, he merely expressed regret that he had broken the shaft of his favorite axe."

Andrew, we may be related! Family history goes that I too am related to Robert E. Lee as well as Gen. George Armstrong Custer. [/quote]
Most folks wouldn't admit something like that, and they dang sure wouldn't put an exclamation on it. laugh[/quote]
Admit to being related to Custer?? whistle
