Right now Im working on posting the surnames in which Im most interested. You can see those below. In case you got here because of any of the locations in which my ancestors congregated, Ive also included lists of people by those predominant Geographic Areas.
I've traced quite a few of my family lines and my wife's back five to ten generations. Obviously I have details on quite a few more surnames than you see listed below. I'll add others whenever "I get a round tuit". But if you see a name or location that you might be connected to, please get in touch with me
If you want to get REALLY covered up in surnames, all the families I've uncovered in my ancestry and my wife's are listed on my GED SURNAME PAGE.
John Thompson was born ca. 1775 and died in 1852 in Wayne County, WV. His father was Richard Thompson who may have come from Halifax County, N.C. The Thompson's are part of my very large collection of ancestors who lived around Wayne County, WV. Related family lines are Ball, Wilson, McCormick, Jarrett and Jarrell.
I have a lot of information and several "loose ends" related to the life of Richard Thompson (1742-1830). I'm compiling them all in one place in the event that other descendants or Richard might use or add to what I've collected.
Jacob Ullery was born in 1772 in Washington County, Maryland. He lived most of his life and died in Miami County, Ohio. His death occurred in 1847. There was another Jacob Ullery in the area, and they both had large families. That's made this kind of a tanlged up group to research.
My 5th-great grandfather, James P. Wilson (1767-1857)was the head of a large family of Wilson's and related families that lived around Wayne Co., WV and Lawrence Co., KY. After my own last name, Gallagher, I've always felt kind of like a Wilson next since James Wilson is the father of three of my 4th great-grandparents, Delila (Wilson) Bartram, Alexander Wilson, and Charles Wilson. Fortunately a couple of generations went by before these lines inter-married!!
Here's some of the information I have on my Wilson Ancestors.
