My Grandfathers line is supposed to have Dutch in it. I believe the name that is associated with the Dutch heritage is Dixon? Does that sound right?

My mother's father's family ( Gardiner ) arrived here in Marys Land in 1634... her mother's side ( Fields ) in the early 1700's. My fathers family ( Kuster, McEwen ) arrived about the mid 1700's. I am of English, Scot, and German decent.

I know I said before that most of my family came from Yorkshire, England. Well at the airport yesterday I met a lady from Yorkshire! I was so delighted and she was even more delightful! I didn't want to let her go! I enjoyed talking to her so much! she told me what it was like there. Just had to share! smile.gif

Irish on my father's side. Not really sure how long we have been here. I am 5th generation German on my mothers' mother's side. French/Canadian on her father's side (they were French living in Canada until they moved to Michigan). I wish I knew more details because I find it very interesting but oh well. sad.gif

My Grandfather came form Denmark just in time to get sent back to France for WWI. This is my fathers side. On my mothers side it gets interesting, she was a Daughter of the American Revolution. Her father also fought in WWI, While he was over seas his family sold all his belongings, well its not like they expected him to come back alive.

My ancestors migrated to the New World between 1620 and 1869. My Soule ancestor came from England on the Mayflower, my Lucas ancestors were in CT by 1640 from England, I have Cattell's in NJ in 1690 from Scotland, I have Copsey's from England to Barbados and then to MD around 1725 My Martin's and Greens were in here during the Revolution but I don't know exactly when they got here or where the came from. I have Peters in my past that came from Prussia around 1850 and Wohltmann's who came over in 1869 from Hanover. There are also some French Canadian, Welsh, and Swiss ancestors hanging out in my tree but I don't know when they came to America just that it was before 1869.

I just realized that all of my grandparents were born in the 19th Century which I guess makes me older than dirt. I don't feel that old but I'm sure that some of you reading this are much younger than my kids.

I don't know precisely when my family immigrated. There are marital records from 1840, and some people with the same last name in the Ellis Island records. Plus, there's a bit of Cherokee on my father's side and some Arapahoe on my mother's.

My Grandfather was born in Castlederg, Co. Tyrone in 1909. I don't know when he arrived in the U.S., but I do know he was married in 1938 in Connecticut.
