52 Weeks in Genealogy, Roger EASTMAN and kin

My Great Grandmother Margaret Mae Eastman Foulk Archer was my Grand mother's MOM. Alas the government in shipment lost all our shared letters in 1967 when we went to HI.  Grrrrrrr.

I wrote to her from the time I was about 8 years old. It was a practice in our home to write our family because we lived so far away from them.  We stopped writing, when she died in January of 1958 the year I graduated high school.

Sometimes I can remember things she wrote about other times I so long for those letters that talked about her family.  I do have pictures of her both younger and older. She did marry twice. Her first husband disappeared when selling grain to Russia and supposedly went with grain to Seattle to make sure it made the ship. GGrandfather Harvey Edward Foulk is another story.

She was born 6 October 1874 BlackHawk Co. IA. Her death was 23 Jan 1958 in Washburn, Blackhawk Co. IA.  She is buried in Washburn, IA.  Downline descendants live in the house today and we write often.

R I P Cousin Donald Jones


Don Jones in white shirt, myself and Gerald O Jones  in Lemon Grove, Ca early 2000's.
They are both gone now. Their fathers were brothers. LaMonte and Carl Jones children of Calvin Fay Jones and Hannah Young Jones.  I miss my Uncle badly at times and always enjoyed the shared time with cousin Don and his wife, even though we found each other later in life. It was his family Dad hunted for for many many years.  We knew they lived in Northern Ca, but it's a big place.
May Dad, Uncle and the other cousins have a joyous get acquaintance in the beyond.

52 Weeks - Thomas Fuller

Following the theme of 52 Weeks of Surnames, and finding this lineage appropriate.

Tonight was the OSCAR's and the best film made me think of this family.   How many of us have
family in this time frame in our files? Does this film make you flinch and realize what our ancestor's really lived through?  Sometimes a film or two comes along that can take you back to touch on the way  lives were lived, in the earlier time period.

Thomas Fuller was born about 1750 in Washington Co., Maryland.  From the few records I have found.  Not found what I really wanted to yet.

Will dated 28 August 1823 Wheeling Township, Guernsey Co. Ohio  He passes 17 March 1824,  aged  74.  Will Book A P.103  1812-1842  (wonders if probated same day as death, maybe death was just before 24th) But it is winter and maybe it was quickly done.

Nov 18, 1812 rec Vol J 23   http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=mattstree&id=P2496687165

sons were Joseph , James Sr, Thomas Jr and John  proven

Joel?  Jacob was not? on Matthews page these names were shared. ??

He marries Lydia Hayes.  She was born 1751 as near as I can find, not proven.  She dies 1817.

I am looking for proof he was in Rev. War,  since the government gave him land in Ohio.
 He had several children.
Joseph, James Sr.*, Thomas Sr.and John  are proven,  other kin say Joel and Jacob are also children.

James Sr*, b 20 Jan 1769 Maryland,  dies 30 Jan 1842, Peoria, Peoria Ill USA.  He marries Catherine she is born 1777.

Children are:   Thomas R 31 May 1798 Linton Hundred, Washington Co. MD, Margaret 15 May 1801Washington Co. Maryland,  Susannah b 11 Sept 1802, Elizabeth, Joseph, William (Billy), James H.,  George and Alexander.

3 girls and 6 boys.

Margaret was born 15 May 1801, Washington Co. Maryland, she dies on 29 Dec 1897, Madrid, Boone, Iowa. USA.  Her sister Elizabeth is born 1803 in Ohio. Joseph 1804 Guernsey Co. Oh, William Billy Fuller 1810 Oh

 Margaret's is buried near my husband's family in Boone Co. Iowa.
She is married 5 Nov 1818, Guernsey Co., Ohio to Samuel WARDEN.

Samuel Warden is born 17 Oct 1795 Huntingdon Co. PA.

They have 6 boys and 4 girls known.  Our line continues with middle son Daniel Warden.

Samuel Warden dies 18 Aug 1884  Grant City, Worth, Mo, USA  1850 census says Samuel is 63 and born in PA..

Would love to learn more on Thomas Fuller & James Fuller's wife Catherine. Also need to work on Lydia Hayes sometime.

Having a Fuller line in Virginia that goes back to the Mayflower Fuller made me curious if this line also does.

52 Weeks and Way Behind. HAINES

Haines was done long ago and sets on  my other computer in garage. Only putting skeleton here for genealogical purposes. Will share so others can see some inter links.


THE ORIGINS OF THE HAINES FAMILY
Our name originates from the Welsh name, Einws.
Vortigern was King of the Brittons at the time of the Roman
occupation of Britton. He married Sevira Serena, daughter of
Magmus Maximus, Roman governor of Britton and granddaughter
of Holy Roman Emperor, Constantine the Great. Together they had
a son named Catigern.
Brochwel Yschithrog, King of Powys, the central part of Wales,
AD 607 was the direct descendant of Catigern. Brochwel's direct
descendant, Einion had a son, also named Einion, but after Welsh
custom he was familiarly called by the diminutive Einws,
pronounced Eins. Einws had a son named John, know as John
Einws, which was sometimes written as Eines or Eynes. John
Eines lived in Bawsley, a town in the parish of Alderbury, which
was partly in Shropshire and partly in Montgomeryshire. From him
descended a flourishing family using the name Heynes, and later
Haynes, that spread over Shropshire and Montgomeryshire.
A member of this family, Richard Heynes relocated Charlebury,
Oxfordshire and eventually to Reading, Berkshire. He had four
sons including Nicholas Haynes of Hackney, Middlesex. Nicholas
was appointed a Yeoman of the Guard to Queen Elizabeth I and
the Coat of arms on the cover was confirmed to him by Queen
Elizabeth I on June 10, 1578.
John Haynes of Messing, Essex, a hot bed of Puritan activity, was
the grandson of Nicholas Haynes. At the request of John
Winthrope, the governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony John
Haynes immigrated to America in 1633. He became the 5th
Governor of that colony and later went on to help found the colony
of Connecticut and become its first governor.
THE ORIGINS OF THE HAINES FAMILY
Richard Haines of Aynhoe, Northamptonshire was the grandson of
John Haynes and his first wife Mary Thorton (direct descendent of
Edward III). He and his wife Margaret Leeds were the immediate
progenitors of the branch of the Haines family known as the New
Jersey branch.
Before leaving England, Richard Haines purchased two grants of
land, each of one hundred acres in the new colony of West Jersey,
which at the time was still a wilderness inhabited by Native
American tribes. The family was coming to America to join their
eldest son John who had left for the new colony of West Jersey in
1680. The girl he loved had left the year before separating the
young couple and John had tearfully promised to follow. John
spent the first winter in a cave along the Rancocas creek. And the
following year built a house below Lumberton. Richard and his
family, including wife Margaret, children Richard, William,
Thomas and Mary set sail from the port of Downs on board the
ship “Amity”. In those days the voyage could take up to three
months, and conditions on board the ship were crude and
unhealthy. As fate would have it soon after leaving port the ship
was hit by a large storm and thrown off course. As the weeks
passed provisions began to run low and the captain ordered that
food and water be rationed, with women and children receiving
first priority. Richard slowly began to weaken and grow sick and
eventually took to his bed. With his family gathered around him
Richard Haines died on April 23, 1682, and was buried at sea. The
loss of one family member was balanced by the birth at sea of
another and just days after Richard’s passing his son Joseph Haines
was born.
The Haines family landed in Burlington, New Jersey in the fall of
1682. The six children of Richard Haines were John, Richard,
William, Thomas, Mary and Joseph. Together they were among
the first settlers of the new colony of West Jersey. They died
owning large tracts of land in Burlington County and elsewhere
and left to their decedents an enduring legacy of faith and courage.
Charles Bozarth Haines was the 7th generation great grandson of
Richard Haines.THE ORIGINS OF THE HAINES FAMILY

Richard Haines died on April 23, 1682, and was buried at sea. The
loss of one family member was balanced by the birth at sea of
another and just days after Richard’s passing his son Joseph Haines
was born.
The Haines family landed in Burlington, New Jersey in the fall of
1682. The six children of Richard Haines were John, Richard,
William, Thomas, Mary and Joseph. Together they were among
the first settlers of the new colony of West Jersey. They died
owning large tracts of land in Burlington County and elsewhere
and left to their decedents an enduring legacy of faith and courage.
Charles Bozarth Haines was the 7th generation great grandson of
Richard Haines.   FROM THE HAINES BOOK
