Who is your first known ancestor?

William Erskine Marrs

What surnames are you searching?

Erskine/Marrs
I'm currently researching the Erskine/Marrs connection. My interest has been piqued again after having my mother's DNA tested through Ancestry. She has appeared as a possible 8th cousin to a descendant of James Erskine, Lord Grange, who was son to Charles Erskine, 22nd and 5th earl and brother to John Erskine, 23rd and 6th earl. Have you come across any other information pertaining to the link between the Marrs and Erskine lines?

Chiefly interested in establishing if my ancestor William Maxwell (c.1740-1810) of Augusta/Botetourt, VA, ultimately Wayne Co., IN might be the William Maxwell, son of John (Sr.) christened at Old Craig Parish, VA in 1743.
Many thanks for your thoughts.

All I know about my father is that he was born in Iowa in 1872. I understand the family then moved to Nebraska and on to Oklahoma. Could it be the same family?

No, John Henry Canaday is my Great Great Grandfather and is buried in the Spencer Cemetary north of Stockport, Iowa along with my Great Grandfather, Emsley Foley Canaday who was born in Glasgow, Iowa 1861 and died in Birmingham, iowa 7/25/1942.
I am having trouble finding the parents of John Henry Canaday. I actually think he was born in Ohio or Tennessee not Virginia. His wife was Sarah F. (Green) Canaday, b: 4/7/1825 Tennessee and d: 8/16/1903 in Van Buren County (probably Birmingham or Stockport) Iowa. Any help you could give me would be very appriciated.

White, Bannister, Edmonds

Do you have anyone buried in Cedar Creek Cemetery?

not sure
Dear Ms Leeper,
I found your work on the Whites of NY on rootsweb. Thank you very much. I have been working on the Whites from various directions. I was born in Kansas; the family moved through Indiana and Maryland from New Jersey. At least I think they are descended from the NJ Whites.
I have seen reports linking Henry White b 1763 to the NJ Whites. He is reported to be a son of Hannah Powell and Josiah White. It appears that this is impossible. It doesn't even seem too likely that he is a son of Josiah and Rebecca. I don't see his name in any of your notes. It is possible that he was either illegitimate, Josiah's son by a second marriage, or the 1763 date is wrong. Have you any ideas re Henry White born 1763?
