    Hayes
    Jordan
    Alburtis/Alberti***
    Corington

    Riese
    Ervin/Irvine
    Yeats/Yates
    Blair
    Kelly
    Buchanan
    Sutherland
    Armistead


    *Andrew Jackson's maternal line
    **This couple were, according to the journal of the Labadist missionaries Danker and Sluyter, the parents of the first White child born in New Netherlands (now known as New York), and are also direct ancestors of both Theodore Roosevelt and Thomas Edison.
    ***The first Italian-American, arrived in New Amstderdam from his native Venice on June 2, 1635. Killed by Indians. The only known Italian in my pedigree was the first one here.

    Many were veterans of the French and Indian War, Lord Dunsmore's War, the American Revolution, the war of 1812, the Civil War. There are other notable factoids, but anyway...

    Dad's side is less well researched, since they came more recently from Europe, but names of direct ancestors (in no particular order, and not including my own surname) include:

    Decker
    Demick
    Kraljic
    Obester/Oberster
    Lube/Luba
    Graftema
    Ehrlich
    Boone


    As you can see, this whole genealogy business is vastly complicated. The blood of all of those families (and certainly many, many more) flows in my veins.

    Haven't got very far back on every branch yet,
    but made some good headway on the paternal side,
    that brings us back to the original settlers of the states:
    I've omitted my family name.
    My mother is half danish, nearly half swedish, some scots english.
    my father is more mixed, with old american-english lines as well
    as norwegian, irish, and various german areas. there was a rumor
    at one point of a red indian in the line farther back, but at my father's
    generation it would have been (if true and barring reemergence) reduced to 1/64 or so. the below table might seem skewed in terms of ethnic origins because certain lines have been traced back farther than others and accumulated more names/origins.

    17th cent. Rev. carter, (english)
    18th cent. cochran (english?)
    17th cent. parkhurst (english)
    19th cent. heath (english)
    18th cent. allen (english)
    17th cent. kvalen møllerup (norwegian - hordaland)
    19th cent. nordbye (norwegian, danish by adoption)
    17th cent. gietzman (teutono-norwegian)
    16th cent. nilsson, salomonsson: haukanes (norwegian)
    19th cent. halverson (norwegian)
    17th cent. milde (norwegian - hordaland)
    19th cent. christensen, pedersen: bunch (danish - jylland)
    19th cent. christensen, larsen: langer (danish - jylland)
    19th cent. seitz (bavarian)
    19th cent. güngerich (swabian)
    19th cent. dunn (irish)
    18th cent. hyatt (english)
    19th cent. johnston (english - scots-english?)
    19th cent. jönsson: lindberg, höglund (swedish - småland)

    Paternal Grandfather: Welsh
    Paternal Grandmother: Northern English


    Paternal Grandfather: Irish
    Paternal Grandmother: Irish

    I've traced my grandmother's maiden name back to before the Norman invasion of England, the surname was brought with the Vikings, and the family had an illustrous Border Reiver history. Currently working on a surname page dedicated to this family.

    My gg-grandmother was a Stewart, descended from Dr. John Stewart*, who was born in Scotland and immigrated to New Netherlands sometime in the late 17th century. He married Elizabeth Alberti, a grandaughter of that first Italian to settle in America (and whose descendents, like the Fulkersons, Duncans, and others, reenter my family tree at different points), and had many children. Some of them, like his son Samuel, through whom I am descended, moved south, first stopping in Delaware, then continuing down the Valley of Virginia in the great migration of the Scotch-Irish.

    Some of the other children were said to have gone north, and it is is sometimes claimed that Elizabeth Alberti Stewart herself died in Londonderry, Rockingham County, New Hampshire. That's fairly close to your neck of the woods, right? Who knows, we could be kin!




    ~~~~~~~
    *One interesting mention of ol' Johnny here was in Volume II of Charles Hanna's Scotch-Irish: The Scot in North Britain, North Ireland and North America. In the chapter entitled "Notes on the Genealogies of the Presidents," he writes:
    Theodore Roosevelt was born in New York City , October 27, 1858 , the son of Theodore (1831-78 ) and Martha Bulloch Roosevelt . Martha Bulloch Roosevelt was the daughter of Major James-Stephens and Martha-Stewart Bulloch (the latter a daughter of General Daniel and Susan Oswald Stewart , and granddaughter of John Stewart , who was the son of John Stewart of Scotland); granddaughter of James (1765-1806 ) and Ann-Irvine Bulloch (the latter a daughter of John and Ann-Elizabeth-Baillie Irvine [the latter a daughter of Kenneth Baillie ] and granddaughter of Charles Irvine of Cults and Euphemia Douglass Irvine [the latter a daughter of John Douglass , Laird of Tilquhillie and Inchmarlo , and Agnes Horn Douglass , daughter of James and Isabel Leslie Horn of West Hall]); great-granddaughter of Governor Archibald and Mary De Veaux Bulloch of Georgia (the latter a daughter of Judge James and Anne Fairchild De Veaux [the latter a daughter of Richard and Anne Bellinger Fairchild , and granddaughter of Edmund Bellinger ]); and great-great-granddaughter of James (1701-1780 ) and Jean Stobo Bulloch , the former born in Scotland (the latter a daughter of the Rev. Archibald and Elizabeth Stobo , who removed from Scotland to the Isthmus of Darien in 1698 and thence to Charleston, South Carolina , in 1700 ). Theodore Roosevelt , Sr. (1831-1878 ), was the son of Cornelius-Van-Schaik (1794-1871 ) and Margaret Barnhill (d. 1861 ) Roosevelt (the latter a daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Potts Barnhill of Philadelphia ); grandson of James-I . (1759-1840 ) and Mary-Van-Schaik (1773-1845 ) Roosevelt ; great-grandson of Jacobus (b. 1724 ) and Annetje Bogaert Roosevelt ; great-great-grandson of Johannes (b. 1689 ) and Hilotje Syverts Van Roosevelt ; and great-great-great-grandson of Nicholas (b. 1658 ) and Hyllotje Jans Van Roosevelt . Nicholas Van Roosevelt was the son of Claes [Nicholas]-Martensen and Jannetje Samuels-Thomas Van Roosevelt of New Amsterdam , who came from Holland in 1649 ; and grandson of Martin Van Roosevelt of Holland . The Bulloch or Balloch clan was a sept of the McDonalds.

    I typed Paternal twice, but obviously the bottom is Maternal. Sorry about that.

    Yes, indeed--Rockingham County is in SE New Hampshire and around 2.5 hours drive southeast of where I am.

    I don't know much about my own Stewart line other than a woman by the name of Jenet (or sometimes found as Janet) married David Allen in Scotland and then they came to America just before the Revolution with David's brother, William Allen. They settled in a town called New Scotland (go figure! ) which is in central Albany County, NY. From our research, the Allen brothers (and likely Jenet as well) came from Fowlis Wester in Scotland which is a bit inland from Perth on Scotland's eastern coast.

    I have no idea what my genealogy is exactly. My fathers family is dutch for as far as they can look it up.
    My mother and her parents were born dutch, but my mothers grandmother/father (my great grandmother/father) came from the Czech republic (I have no idea what it was called back then) and Austria.

    So I might be 1/8 part Slavic. But I actually have no idea, I never really searched for it.
