My grandmother (maternal) was a Purcell. Her father was James Purcell b. 9-2-1866 Mich. d. 12-15-1960 (Mich) m. Anna Metzger b.5-4-1880 Mich. d. 4-10-1957 Mich. James Purcell's father I believe was from Kilkenny, Ireland. His fathers name was Antony Metzger (Anthony Metzger) born in Germany. I had my husband & brother both do tests on Family Tree & it is believed that my mother's Irish line & my husband's Irish line are way back cousins but I'll probably never be able to make the connection.
I saw you have Hortons. I have Hortons in SC--Old Ninety-six District. The first one, William, came down to SC from Long Island before the Revolution. Have just started hunting his parents. Where are your Hortons from?
Hey Caren! I haven't started on my grandfather's side yet. The only information I have thus far is my great great grandfather John Albert Horton, Sr b Mar 21, 1889 in Central Falls, RI d Nov 11, 1941. He married Edith A. Wood and had two boys: John Albert Horton, Jr. and Everett Wood Horton. Where are the Horton's on your tree from?? :)
Hi Caren. My great grandmother was a Jackman, born in Franklin county, Indiana in 1867. The earliest Jackman I have is Edward b. abt. 1735 in Ireland. Edward is not documented...still looking. I have more if you think we might connect somewhere!
Thanks for answering, I think I will give the problem over to my grandson he's pretty good with these kinds of problems, You did however mention a book that would help explain my linage but I can't seem to find it, any chance you know where I can get it.
Hi Caren,.........I entered the chat room at genealogy wise quite a long time ago, you said you were related since my name is Tilton. I have been trying to get back in the chat room forever but can't seem to get back in. if you know how to solve this problem please contact me at .....firstname.lastname@example.org. I did send a question to the site, they said it might be software problems I have windows 7. I would appreciate any help I really enjoyed the room
Caren - I checked real fast before heading to bed. The Teague we have who had the name Loving was Chapman Loving Teague, born September 1878 in Titus County, TX, and died 1884 in Moody, McLennan County, TX. His father was William Swaim Teague and his mother was Amanda Melvina Mitchell.
We know that both of his names of Chapman and Loving came from relatives to the Teague family - this was how we found our first connection to the Loving family. Don't know if that helps you or not, but that's the information we have on the name. Patty
