I'm searching family names of BELTRAN, CUENTAS, FISH, HATHAWAY, HENRY, NISSEN, PADILLA, PEDERSEN (PETERSEN), RAMIREZ, WEBER, SISSON, SUTHERLAND, WING. Countries of origin include: United States of America, Denmark, Great Britain, Mexico and Nova Scotia.

Extended family members live in Denmark and the United States. I'd like to know more about Danish and Mexican ancestors, in particular CUENTAS, PADILLA, RAMIREZ surnames in Mexico, most likely from the states of Sinaloa and Jalisco in the 18th and early 19th centuries; and PEDERSEN/PETERSEN, NISSEN surnames from Denmark's Svendborg, Odessa, Frederiksborg and Copenhagen counties in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The NISSEN lines go back in Denmark to the 1700s and PEDERSEN/PETERSEN lines are known into the 1800s. But for both I'd like to learn about the family members themselves and the families that married into the NISSENs and PEDERSENs.

Of particular interest is the family of Isaac SISSON and wife Helen HENRY (of Nova Scotia), who had children Jacob, Lydia and James about 1879 - 1884 in Dutchess County, NY. What became of these children? What can be learned about the HENRY family? The SISSON branch begins in 1608 in Great Britain and the SISSONs emigrated in the 1650s to the United States.

I am married, retired, and have 2 children and grandchildren. I'll be happy to receive any information you may have about my family and I'll share what I have with you.
