Updated July 9, 2011

On Janice's father's side of the family, we are looking for information on Daniel Brown and his wife Sarah Stevens; James Savage from Ireland; and James McManus and his wife Catherine O'Conner, also from Ireland.

I am very interested in how to find a native American.Three of my cousins have said that our family is part Native American I am trying to find out who he or she is now. Someone has said that my grandfather, Amon Benjamin Brown, and my great-grandfather Ellison Frank Brown both have the high cheek bones of an Eastern Tribe. Grandchildren of Amon Benjamin Brown's two sisters have said that their grandmothers told them that they were part Native American. Ellison and his wife Emma lived with their family in Maine.Ellison Frank Brown parents are Benjamin Brown and Deborah Grinnell Collamore If anyone has any idea about a Native American who might have married into the Brown family, please let us know. If anyone knows that Benjamin Brown orDeborah Grinnell Collamore is part Native American, please let us know.

On Janice's mother's side of the family, we are looking for information on: Martha Hamilton who is from Canada and is married to Abram(Abraham) Argersinger; William McCloud and his wife Elizabeth Boswell; James Hamm and his wife Ann; John Penny and his wife Hannah; Thomas Standish, his wife Susannah Francis and what connection, if any, he has with Myles Standish; and Mary Blanchard who is married to Rufus Westcott.

On Robert's father's side of the family, we are looking for information on John Ball, his wife Anne Mariah McFarlene and, hopefully, some connection to Mary Ball, George Washington's mother; and Samuel Saulters and his wife, Henrietta Drury.

Janice is trying to help her cousin, Shawn Brown, find her mother's ancestors. We are looking for information on: Samuel Sando and his wife Susannah; Joseph B. Conrad; Henry Witman and his wife Mary Shell; Henry Shell and his wife whose name is unknown at this point; and John Wagner and his wife Magdalena Fink.

Since Janice is doing all the genealogy research for all the families, all questions, all information, and all corrections about any of the people in our genealogy reports should be directed to her at her email address. Janice would also be very happy to exchange whatever information we have about any ancestor of ours with anyone who is interested.

Janice has done her best to source all her work. If some of the work has not been sourced and you know that it came from information that you provided on any website, please let her know so she can include you among her sources. Also, if anyone finds an error in my work, PLEASE let me know - I would appreciate knowing about it so I can correct it.

Janice is now a member of the California Branch of the Mayflower Society. She was successful in proving that she is a descendant of John Alden and his wife, Priscilla Mullins, through their daughter Rebecca Alden who was married to Thomas Delano.
Janice is also a member of the Santa Clara County Historical and Genealogical Society.

Several people have sent me emails and asked me about someone in one of my reports. Can you please resend your email so I can help you. Your email was lost and I really want to answer your
question.You asked because it was important to you.Thank you.
