I was doing research for a family history newsletter I send out to my kin on Mom's side of our family when I discovered we have some rough characters on our kin list.
I was checking the Blanton line back and remember Martha Shepherd marrying one of my Blanton g-grandfathers (George)back in the late 1700's or early 1800. It seems Martha had a brother, James Pendleton Shepherd or Shepard as it was sometimes spelled, who moved to Kansas and he had two or three grandsons who grew up to…Continue

I recently attended my 40th class school reunion out in Southern California. There was a whirlwind of activities, two parties on a Friday night, the real reunion on Saturday night and then a brunch picnic the following Sunday morning. I didn’t attend the brunch, choosing instead to have breakfast with a small group of woman I have known since I was a very young girl. It was a good choice. It allowed us an intimate time to reflect on our lives and the past two days, and I didn’t want to…Continue

My grandpa, Henry Redeker, was adopted when he was young. No one knows who the real birth parents are. The only information I have is that his last name would have been Weber. He was born in Wisconsin in 1925. His adoptive parents are Minnie and John Redeker. After doing some research, I potentially have a match to who his birth parents are. I checked out the 1930 census and discovered there was a Henry Weber Sr. and Regna Weber with a son named Henry living together. Henry would have been 5…Continue

Last year I shared some of my family tree with a friend. After a few days they sent me an E mail. One sentence stood out. "Did you know that you are a descendant of Don Juan Ponce de Leon, Adelantado de la Florida?"
I was a little surprised then I wrote my friend back. No? Do you have any details?
They sent me a family tree that was documented up to Antonio Maldonado y Nieves married to Dona Manuela Montalvo.
Antonio was born 1795 in Utuado, Puerto Rico.

Charles Jipp and Lena Nanke had several children. If by chance any of you are related would you please sign in or get back to Mary Pentico Nelson or I.
Or if any of you are related to Grandpa Jipp from the old country or Germany we would love to hear from you.
I have little information on Grandfather Jipp due to his death shortly before MOM Louise Jipp Pentico born. Fred's Mom never knew her father. Her older siblings knew him a bit.
