A collection of historical and genalogical records

I gave this line several years ago. Robert Bell was son of Thomas Bell and Mary Senior. He died, intestate in 1795 in Northampton County. Robert and Mary Jarvis (daughter of William Jarvis,Sr. and Ann Goffigon) Ann Goffigon was the daughter of James Goffigon and Leah Willett. Robert Bell and Robert Bell and May Jarvis had five children. One of the five was Betsey Bell who married Severn Evans Nottingham. Severn Evans Nottingham was the father of Elizabeth Ann Nottingham who married Captain William McKown. It was their daughter, Lucy Ann Nottingham, who married Washington Hunt, my great grandfather.

I, now, move into new territory. I ,just, mentioned Jacob Nottingham, father of Severn Nottingham, the grandfather of Elizabeth Ann Nottingha.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
