We notice that many of our family names correspond to your list. Blaisdell (Rock Island
connection), Sampson, Samson, Alden, Long, to name a few. This is my husband's family.
I notice on my side...Richmond (origin England), Jones (origin Scotland).
Also, just curious, did you attend an Elderhostel event in Utah in June, 2007?
We look forward to hearing from you. Jan and George Sampson, Rosemount, MN
John--I am researching the following surnames: Mathhewson, Smith, Hogg, and Wolf. They are from Scotland and Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, USA. I notice you have several of those names listed and am wondering if there are any connections.
I am searching for information about Pinckney Chandler of Greenville County, SC (1843-1868). He was said to be named after his ancestors, the Pinckney family of SC- possibly through his mother Leeanna Campbell Chandler's line. I was searching for links between the Chandler, Campbell and Pinckney families and a link to your profile came up.
I thought I'd write to ask if you might possibly have information about any of these lines. Pinckney Lafayette Chandler is the son of Willis C. Chandler/Leeanna Campbell and the grandson of unknown Chandlers/John Richard "Dickey" Campbell and his wife Virginia Jane Barnett.
Thanks in advance for your help- Julie
