As of August 18 2009 [Rev 14]:

My primary genealogy interest is my NEWBOLD surname, which I have traced to Thomas Newbold, "Merchant of London", who first appeared in Accomack County VA circa 1674, moving north into Somerset County Maryland circa 1678, where he died in the first half of 1713. His g-grandson, Francis NEWBOLD, was my ggg grandfather, born 1780 in Sussex County DE. My line from Francis NEWBOLD is: Robert Harris NEWBOLD; William Milton NEWBOLD; William Layton NEWBOLD; my father; me.

Thomas' youngest son, also a Francis, owned a tract of land in 1727 called "Bashan", located in Sussex County DE approx 2 to 3 miles SE of present-day Bridgeville. Francis died in 1777, leaving two sons, John & Thomas [Francis Jr predeceased his father]. Thomas himself died in mid-1785 in Sussex County, leaving 3 children: George, Francis [my ggg grandfather], and Nancy.

My research has developed information on many descendants of Thomas NEWBOLD Sr, including NEWBOLDs who left MD in the 1760s and 1770s for NC [Onslow County] & others who left DE for KY in the very early 1800s, and then to MO by the 1840s [desc of David NEWBOLD, only son of Francis Jr]. As far as I know, the last male descendant of Thomas Sr in either MD or DE was James NEWBOLD [a son of John NEWBOLD, 2nd youngest son of Thomas Sr.] James died in 1831 & was buried in Lewes DE with wife Hannah. With his death, all surviving male descendants of the NEWBOLD Progenitor, Thomas NEWBOLD "Merchant of London", were in NC, KY, or IN [to my knowledge].

My father's mother's family was named GULDE, who were from Geislingen, a village in Wuerttembuerg Germany. My g grandfather Eusebius Gulde immigrated at age 16 by himself on the SS Baltic, landing in NY City May 1874. He settled in Jefferson County, IN, where some relatives lived. Eusebius lived mostly in Madison IN, but spent time also in Rushville IN -- a circumstance which my grandfather William used to meet & marry his daughter, Mary Ida Gulde in 1906. Eusebius died in 1954 at age 96.

My PIPP lineage (maternal grandfather) originated in Echzell, Germany. My line: Henry V PIPP b. 1892 in Terre Haute IN; Conrad[2]PIPP b. 1857 Harrisburg PA; Conrad[1]PIPP b. 1830 in Echzell. Conrad PIPP arrived in Balt MD in June of 1848. He had migrated to Lancaster PA by 1853, and then to Harrisburg by 1860. I've discovered through research that my PIPP ancestors descend from the same PIPP family as the famous New York Yankee baseball player from the 1920s, Wally PIPP. His grandfather, Heinrich, a brother to Conrad[1] immigrated to Michigan in 1850, just two years after Conrad arrived in Maryland [however, I have uncovered no record showing that these two PIPP branches ever communicated with each other].

My maternal grandmother was named INSKEEP. This particular INSKEEP line was documented in a 1975 book "Meet the Families Garwood and INSKEEP" by Ruth Inskeep. My focus has been information particular to my direct line. However, I believe I was the first to actually document the existance of the English "progenitor" of this INSKEEP line, John INSKEEP of Fulford Staffordshire. I summarized this information, based on a trip to Staffordshire in Summer of 2001, in a posting to the INSKIP Forum @ in September 2001.

I am always interested to exchange information on these surnames. I'm particularly interested documents & photographs, & tombstones. I'm also focused on documenting the location of my ancestors' properties. I've managed to do this to a reasonable degree for my NEWBOLD ancestors in Maryland and Delaware in the 17th and 18th centuries, thanks in large part to documentation published by the Keddies, Leslie and Neil, in their voluminous deed abtracts from the time, and the knowledge shared by Mr. John Lyon on Eastern Shore web sites, and in the DelMarVa List.

Please contact me if interested in any of these surnames!
