I don't have anything YET on Perrys in New England; however, I do have one of my Perry's who married a Horton, whose dad was born in Long Island, and then moved down into SC. I've just started research that link that far back. That would be mid 1700s when they were in New England. What time frame are you looking for?
You might check out the Great Wagon Road. Lots of people took that from PA to NC/SC. It's possible there is a start to the Great Wagon Road up in NY. Just a thought...
I'm always on the lookout for more information. I'm the State Genealogist for the Colorado DAR, so I stumble on things all the time as I'm researching other people's lines. I'll definitely keep a watch out.
I do not have any genealogy connections to Gettysburg. I have always wanted to go there and decided about three years ago that it was time. What a beautiful place. I do plan on going there again someday. I have taken a couple of the ghost tours as well, which I have also enjoyed.

Very touching letter! We actually have no blood link to the Ballous. My husband thought he was a Ballou untill he was told otherwise at the age of 21. So I never have researched the Ballou name.
Hi Jim, am not familiar with Charles McCown (except for living relatives ie: cousin and great nephew). Who was his ancestor? My husband's family descended from Francis mcCown that came to America under the Borden Tract.
Hi Jim, Thank you for the welcome. I have just began. My Great Grandfather was Jesse E West, who died in Kansas 1890. I have traced him back to Springhill, Fayette County, PA as son of Phineas West and Lidia Lewellen. Phineas had quite a large family of his own. I just read in another forum that Phineas Father might be Nathaniel West and Mary Everly from Monongalia Co WV, have not verified yet. I think Nathaniel's birthplace was New Jersey. All I know for now. Again thanks for the welcome. You never know when paths may cross.
Hi Jim! You didn't scare me off. I lost my internet connection and then got distracted. I am also having a problem getting into the Chats. I sent you a Friend Invitation last night. I would like it if you would accept. Thanks Jim, Lisa
Hi Jim, Just did a double check to see if I had any Nichols in PA. My husband's Nichols clan is all from Virginia and later West Virginia. They pretty much settled in one area and stayed there, Nicholas county and surrounding areas. Some made it out to Kansas for a while but I think they all came back to the mountains.
I found this while searching for my Hunkins clan...I know you said yours are NOT from Groton but maybe a relative? Looks like these are descendents of his that ended up in Waukesha,WI
