The Home Position, #1, for this chart, is that of my sons.

Bloodline-spouses are in italics and in bold; and sometimes they link to a separate page or location (links are in light green and are underlined). The above list, "Spouses", links to their individual location within this page.

Various information (census images, marriage records, photos...) for individuals may be accessed by clicking on their name. The resources I have are listed after each individual's birth and death dates below. There may be additional data on some siblings which is only on my direct ancestor's page.

Please use your back-button, or click on HOME, to return to the main page. External links (links to other sites) open in their own window or tab.

Question marks indicate uncertain data. Most of my research was done through ancestry.com. This is a work in progress.
