About

This blog is focused on my adventures and misadventures in family research, not necessarily the best and most effective ways to research.  I am an absolute amateur researcher.  Please do not hold this against me or my blog.

My name is Erin.  I have a husband named Andrew (he will be mentioned many times throughout this blog as he is the most directly affected by my choice of hobby) and a daughter named Coraline.  Andrew is a good sport.  Sometimes I feel sorry for him because he is married to me.

Me and my poor husband, Andrew.

In terms of my family background, I am the muttiest of mutts.  I could not begin to claim one heritage more than another.  There’s a lot of British Isles in there, Swiss, German, even Choctaw, and Angolan.  Yes, Angolan.  If you saw me you would never believe it.  I’m as white as white gets.  My families, since locating in the U.S., have been primarily in New England, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.  Andrew’s family has been in Indiana for a LONG time, which is actually quite delightful, seeing as that is where we reside.

  2. Found your blog while researching Browns. My tree goes back to SC. Websites discuss my Browns being Quaker emigrating from Bermuda. trying to connect Alexander Brown to Browns in Bermuda. Borrowed book “Bermuda Settlers” but last listed Brown is Robert Brown b. 1683. Oldest listed Brown is Rector Robert Brown, the younger Robert’s great- grandfather, d.1660. Will look at Quaker genealogy books next. By the way, you have lovely photos.

  3. Ahhhhh the elusive Alexander Brown! This is as far back as I’ve been able to go as well. Please contact me if you have additional information.
    Thank you,

    • Have you ever been to Union Co? Or South Carolina to do any research? I’m not sure if it’s worth going if this is as far back as the trail goes. Oh….Alexander.

  4. I enjoyed your adventures to Miami County and Shelby County. I am working with the Troy Historical Society and Museum cataloging donated items. I have been researching a few of the Weavers who made Coverlets. I am guessing you may know Simon was well known for his Coverlets. If you have not seen, I can send you examples. If I can help you with research in this area let me know as I love doing it all. Keep up the good work! Rick Jackson

  5. I wish I could have reached you to tell you one of your ancestors coverlets that is signed Simon Staudt is for sale at Everythingbutthehouse.com It sells today at 4pm. it may go cheap for a Coverlet as it is in need of some repair. Just thought it may be cool for you to have. He made it in 1847.
