Thanks for your kind thoughts. I am staying home and safe for Covid19 and hope you and your family are, too.

I am, sadly, not a descendant of the Mayflower Hopkins. My Hopkins are more recent immigrants. 

I do have other early colonial ancestors, but have not yet found any who traveled on the Mayflower.

Doing my best, Al. Social worker at a children's hospital so kind of on the front line. Have done screening at the front door, put down x's every six feet (front entrance, parking and within the Resource Centre where I work), and other "duties as assigned". Expect to be seconded or deployed elsewhere next week as our staffing will rise a bit.

Not that I know of but the Dawsons are a brick wall for me.  The ones I have are in New York and New Jersey

Hi Al, Newark is about 30 minutes from Paterson, so it's in the same area.  Thanks for adding me to your friends list. ~Jan

"Are your TAYLORs from Ontario? Do any have HADDON as a middle name?"

Hi Al. No, the Taylors I am connected to are in Nova Scotia and it is only by marriage.

Nope, Bonham-Carter from Kent.

Hi Al,

That's where the Wares lived for a couple of generations! Lucy married Edmund Joseph Ware about 1901, and her dad helped him build a corner store across the Don River when the Danforth first opened up. I'm descended from their son, and have seen the store.

Are you in the Toronto area?

No, mine are in the north of England.

No. It is a very common name though so a blanket shout out probably isn't going to do you much good. Good Luck

No Al,  my Dawsons are in Australia and before that they came from Lincolnshire in England (Corby near Grantham)

Hi Al,

My great-grandmother, Lucy Agnes Dawson was
Born: Sep 20 1881
Died: May 4 1936 (at age 54)

She was born in North York township, now part of Toronto, and also died in Toronto.
Her parents, James Dawson and Mary Herbert, had been married in Scotland not too long before. James died in July, 1926 in Toronto. I've been told by her daughter that Lucy was an only child.

Hope this is helpful,

Dara

Hi, Sorry, no Dawsons in Michigan or Canada. We're all Southerners. —Jill

I'm still working on Jefferson and Harden Williams and the Rouse/Dawson connection.  Few documents are surfacing for that early time period.

Thank you for the information on FGS.  I was hoping to get more training in Genealogy this year, either in my personal time or by attending conferences.  I will see what I can do about making the trip.  My Taylor and Smith line starts somewhere in Pennsylvania or New England, with no trace to Europe.  They may have come from Europe to US or from Europe to Canada to US. However, all my ties to the Northern European ancestry is from the early Colonial times, when many of the families from Europe migrated into the US.  It is hard to trace the lineage back to Europe since that was around 1600-1700 already.!!

However from DNA testing, I matched with someone who originated from Ireland.!!

One, Dick Shea wrote: Jim and I have common ancestors who lived in Co. Kerry, Ireland.  The surnames are: Shea; Richardson; Moloney; Herbert; and Eagar.  Our ancestors lived in several different locations in Kerry, namely Kenmare, Killarney, Tralee, Duagh, and Listowel. Also they are tied with Smith who moved to England.

This is getting a bit spooky because I am also related to Herman Husband who is my 4th Great Grandfather and he was instrumental with being one of the "Farmers"  starting the Battle of Alamance....  Some people say it was the beginning of the American Revolution.  He lived in North Carolina and has quite the story connected with him after he left North Carolina and headed to Pennsylvania.  I just love his story... do you know anything about that?

Sorry to hear about the health problems you have been undergoing. You sure so write fast... Guess it is because I have the Super Bowl on now but thinking about turning it off.   Poor San Francisco.... gotta hope a West Coast team wins...

Hi CUZ.  Thank you for inviting me as a friend. Now I not only have you as a Wakefield CUZ but could have you as a Barnes CUZ too as my mother's grandmother was a Barnes and my father's grandmother was also a Barnes...  I can't find any connection (thank goodness, otherwise I would have to admit that is why I am the way I am)!!!!

My mother's Barnes line hits a brick wall at her Father, Milburn C. (Believe it is Charles) Barnes born 1718 in VA... but the town is not known, therefore back then it could have been West Virginia as that boundary was changed over time.  My dad's grandmother  Barnes is Olive Hill Small 1857-1944 Born Long Lake, Hennepin, MN, who married Shepard Blanchard Barnes 1819- 1898 born Kingfield, Franklin, Maine, his father was Nathanial B. Barnes 1773-1851 born Lee Penobscot, Maine, and his father was Nathanial Barnes 1742 in Harpswell, Maine. then his father Nathanial (DUH) born in Ireland.  So, if I could find out more about my mother's Barnes we would have a better idea if we are also related in the Barnes group....but we both have Barnes and Wakefield,  What a hoot!   CUZ Molly
