I have been exploring my family history for about a year now. I am interested in building an ancestral tree with as many collateral branches as I can muster. In addition, once I get back to all of my first generation links, I hope to create descendent trees and begin organizing reunions. As I gather my information, I am looking for as many anecdotes as possible to make any family histories I create along the way more real and personal. Yes, my enthusiasm for the subject knows no bounds!I have predominantly French-Canadian roots on my father's side back to the 1600's with names such as Sevigny, LaFreniere, LaBerge, Sabourin with a sprinkling of Irish by the name of Madden. My direct line ancestors immigrated to the US in the mid to late 1800's. Mainly located in North Dakota, Michigan & Washington. My cousin completed much research on this side of the family, so I have focused my efforts on my mother's side to start.On my mother's side I have surnames such as Gascoine, Mosier, Buchanan, Simon, Crusan, McCully, Applegate, Osborn & McPherson all settling in Pennsylvania. My recent immigrants are Joseph Gascoine arriving sometime between 1850 and 1880 from England and Bernard Simon arriving 1871-1872 from Germany at the age of 4-5 years. I'm in the process of trying to link them to a particular ship arrival.My McCully and Applegate lines migrated from NJ to Pennsylvania sometime between 1805 and 1810. I am trying desperately to get the names of William McCully and Katherine Applegate's parents. William McCully was born in Hunterdon Co., NJ, and Katherine Applegate was born in Burlington Co., NJ. They married in Mount Holly, NJ and settled in Lycoming County, PA, finally arriving in Erie Co., PA.My Mosier line goes back to 1825 in Erie Co., PA. I am trying to definitively link my ancestor Samuel Mosier with his father, Daniel Mosier. I also need to find parents for his wife, Sophia Osborn. They were married at the 1850 census.My latest passion has been to try to link up my Crusan line with the Croesen line which has been so well documented. Unfortunately, the Dutch naming customs have presented quite a challenge. I have my ancestor Joseph Crusan with wife, Sarah, in Fairfield, Westmoreland Co., PA, in the 1850 census with an eldest son Jacob (whom I suspect was named after his wife's father) and a Jane Butt (his wife's mother?) By 1870 he has a son Robert (named after Joseph's father?). There was a Jacob Butt living in the same town (Derry) as a number of Crusans in the 1820 census. Still a lot of work to do here.I would be happy to share any and all of my information. If you have any information that could link in with my family, I would love for you to contact me either by email or snail mail.
