Our ancestors originated from several European countries and emigrated
to North America from the
early 1630's through the 1860's.
Their descendants were among the founders of several New England towns.
hey were among the settlers who helped pushed the western frontiers
through Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Some were Quakers,
helping spread their belief westward through the new country.
The Migration Paths of our ancestors converged in Williams County,
the most northwestern county
of Ohio, and a few miles further north
into southern Hillsdale County, Michigan.
They were among the first pioneers of these counties, carving
from the wild frontier. Some of their descendants still live on these lands.
