I've just started on my Quaker reearch.  It is such a pleasant surprise to find so many ancestors.  My Quaker families are Bales/Beals/Beales, Chandler, Garrett and Jessup.  They came from Virginia, to North Carolinia to Indiana to Iowa.

I've found that in Indiana there were two large Quaker areas, one in the Hendricks County, Indiana and the other in Westfield, Hamilton county, Indiana.

My Quaker families are Beeson, Clampitt, Grubb, Brooks and Stroud.  They came to Delaware and Pennsylvania then on to Guildford County, NC and on to Indiana. Would love to share information.

The first members of my paternal and maternal side came to Pennsylvania 1703 and 1682 respectivelly and the maternal side was pure Quaker, while on the paternal side we are not sure, but some married Quakers. It is said that the first Quaker for business in Philadelphia was held at a home of Christopher Taylor.

Hello all. Just joined GW and Quaker Ancestors. My grandmother on my Dad's side was a Wright. She decended from John Wright and Rachel (Wells) Wright, both Quaker ministers.

Hello, Just joined the group and have the family name of "YERKES" on my mother's side. The family farmed and had a lumber mill is Bucks County PA. There is also a town called Yerkes in Montgomery County, PA. Hope to connect with others.

Hello all. My Quaker roots are found in the Hatchers From Bucks County, Pennsylvania to Loudoun County, Virginia to Logan County, Ohio. Other connected families I am researching include Reames/Reams, Merrimoon/ Marmon and Rea. All four families attended Goshen MM in Logan County during the Hicksite–Orthodox split.

Hi everyone,
I just discovered one of my ancestors was a Quaker. He's my 9th greatgrandfather Joshua Coggeshall of Rhode Island 1623-1688. He's buried in the Portsmouth Friends Churchyard in Newport RI.

Hi all, I am a member of the Religious Society of Friends and enjoy studying genealogy. I do have Quaker ancestors who date back to the 17th century. They settled in the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland area.
