"GOOD NEWS!!! I have broken through this brick wall. John Clayton's parents are Joseph Clayton and Mary Davies; I have been able to track them right through. Joseph passed away in 1863 or 1864. The fact that he was deceased is likely why…"

"Hi Gerald, have you thought about looking at the witness names on the marriage certificate? Sometimes it's easier to identify the witnesses and link them to the people getting married - I must say usually if there is no father on the birth…"

My own line of clayton's is from Leeds and surrounding areas but also in my tree are Clayton's from Birmingham Warwickshire. Is there a direct connection? or not?To me each family history is a beautiful tapestry woven through time and the threads that join each together are truly golden threads.

My great-great grandparents, Gustav and Auguste Rosentreter, came to the United States in 1881. My great-grandfather was also a Rudolph, and he was born in Michigan later that year. They lived in what is presently Poland, but was part of Prussia at the time. Gustav apparently had several siblings, but I've only been able to track down two of them, Louise and Johann. Both settled in the midwestern United States. I read enough German that I've been able to trace my family back to the 1780s in Prussia. I've been surprised at how many apparently unconnected Rosentreter families there seem to be!
