England, Scotland, Wales, France, Germany, Ireland
What is your level of genealogy knowledge?
Advanced Family History Researcher

I was also fascinated with the way our primary issues don't change, how people are the same generation after generation, the way we can relate the time they lived to national and world events.

They moved to michigan where one of his descendents is Anna Hagaman. I am hoping fo find a connection here somewhere!
