I found another 2 entries for King Ratharius, who had no mother listed; so there are 2 lines to Sarah on my mother's side & 1 line on my father's. There are 2 more lines to Sarah's brother, on my mother's side.

Mariamné (Mary Magdalene) was in the surprise by hearing the history of this Frankish tribe and granted the hand of Sarah-Damaris to Anthénor, sure that there was the will of his father and God. In the year 45, Sarah-Damaris thus married Anthenor the IVth [also seen it as Antenor III] and conceived a son to whom we gave the name of Ratherius. Big festivities celebrated the event and the people from this day had a big love Sarah-Damaris and small Ratherius. Anthenor the IVth succeeded his father a few years later and became one just and fair King. There were no great wars during the reign and the people were grateful to him for it. Everybody attributed this peace to the soft influence of his wife.
Sarah-Damaris who had the concern of the well-being of her new people, emitted the desire to make apostles of his father come to teach the Gospel to king and to his people. Anthenor loved his wife and respected her opinion. He accepted and received respectfully next year Andrew and Thomas, the followers of Jesus. The apostles of Jesus preached the Gospel to the Sicamber people and to King with all the love of their heart for God's work. They spoke for a long time about Jesus, about his miracles, about his love for all the men.
They called Sarah-Damaris to become Missionary of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in this earth of adoption and undertook her to compile for benefaction of the future generations the revelations that she received in humble sound heart. Indeed, Sarah was as their mother, she had the gift of prediction.
The Gospel of Jesus was received with a lot of enjoyment by Sicambers which took almost unanimously the baptism of water and spirit. Small praying communities built up themselves around the personality of their king and their queen, daughter of Jesus the resuscitated Messiah.

Found this in my hand~charted Tribal Tree.. don't know source at the moment. My family is available for testing. Can I get free testing; find or start a project? I have more than 3 lines to Mary M. [male & female family members available for testing. Please help. I also don't like the idea of privatized information. I want to help history, now that it has become my favorite study. [approx. 20 lines to Joseph of A & 20 to Beli M.. & most all lines of tree heavy with European, Scandinavian, even Kiev royalty]

For anyone interested, I started a genealogy page on Facebook. If interested, look for "Grandchildren of David and Marie Sohier desMarets" and request access. There are over 400 relatives there from many branches and name variations. There are also a couple of research fanatics that like to help...Bob

I have been working on scanning some old family photos and have just uploaded some tintypes for public review. I recognize my great-grandparents but I can't place a lot of the faces. If you have reference of relatives in Northern NJ, or are just curious, please have a look! I'm happy to share the high resolution scans (for non-commercial use of course). Thanks! http://web.mac.com/mnovakdesign

I am decended from David Demarest and Marie Sohier though their son David whose daughter Rachel married Andries (Andrew) Van Orden. My maiden name is Van Orden.

I am currently trying to verify some clues I found that indicate I may be descended from David and Marie a couple more ways, but I am having trouble verifying some information that would finish connecting the links for me. If any one can help, please let me know. Here is where I'm snagged:

My father's mother was a Havens and the Havens family tree has been traced to Elijah Kayhart who married Elizabeth Leach. Elizabeth Leach was the daughter of Thomas Leach, and Priscilla. I have just recently tried to find more about Priscilla and found that her last name was Ackerman, and possibly daughter of David Ackerman (b. 1764 & gr gr grandson of David and Marie Demarest through their son Jean) and Willimpse Bogert.

I am having trouble verifying the link between Priscilla and David. Does anyone know of a source that will verify this for me? I would greatly appreciate it!

There seems to be alternate given names for Priscilla: Sietje, Crietje and Cecilia. Priscilla was born 28 March 1792 in New York (from what I have seen) and died 22 August 1881 in Montville, Morris Co, NJ.

Thanks for any help anyone may be able to pass along.

It looks like Family Tree DNA will be having another Facebook sale starting a week from tomorrow, on Friday, April 15th. Anyone thinking about DNA testing should probably follow what happens with FTDNA that day. They will probably post a coupon code and an explanation of the sale on their Facebook page.
