I have his Eckman line dated back to the mid 1600’s to the birth of his 7th great grandfather, Ulrich Eckman. The Eckmans are from Roamnshorn, Canton of Thurgan in
This is definitely one branch on which I would like to confirm documentation. Switzerland
The Deyoe line is another I would like to work on documenting more. This past summer we took a few days and went up
. We gained a lot of information that I am still in
the processing of transcribing all the data. New
The shortest line I have is that of his maternal grandfather’s mother, Louise Sharp. She has been a bit of a mystery. She was, according to several census records, born in 1838 in
believe her mother’s first name is Sarah but that is know of her parents, at
this time. She is a ghost from 1850 when she is just 12 to 1871 when, at 32,
her first son is born. My goal is to find documentation of her marriage to
Daniel Deyoe. Delaware
County, New York
Glenn got his DNA run through Ancestry.com to confirm/deny a family story about being Native American. The stories his uncle and sister and even himself told me were that a Deyoe married a Mescalero whom he met while serving in the military. While it is still entirely possible that somewhere up his tree there is a Native American, he does not have any of that person’s DNA. The stories do not align with the facts that have been uncovered either.
His DNA broke down as such:
Finally since I plan to poke around
a lot on my side, I may also focus a bit on Glenn’s 2nd great
grandmother, Catherine Wrenn. She was born 6 June 1831 in Ireland Ireland and arrived in in 1849. America
I would love to search every line on both our sides but I am hoping to get a few other (pun intended) related items accomplished as well in 2016. I think these four lines will keep me plenty busy!
