Ancestor Table

A person in search of his ancestors naturally likes to believe the best of them, and the best in terms of contemporary standards. Where genealogical facts are few, and these located in the remote past, reconstruction of family history is often more imaginative than correct.
~ James G. Leyburn
(The Scotch-Irish: A Social History)

An ancestor table is a numbering system for organizing ancestors. The starting person is given the number 1. His or her father would be number 2, and mother, number 3. Continuing the pattern, the number of a father is twice the child’s number and the mother’s number is twice the child’s number plus one. Males have even numbers, and females have odd numbers. Sometimes a couple are parents to more than one child on the family tree. In that case, the parents keep the first number (or lowest number) they have been assigned. The starting “person” on this table is any one of our three children. The number or numbers in parentheses after an ancestor’s name indicate the numbers assigned to their children.

Among our children’s American ancestors are Mayflower passengers arriving in Plymouth in 1620, and immigrants arriving at Ellis Island as recently as 1909. Our ancestry is European, mostly Baltic, Celtic, Germanic, Nordic, and Slavic. We’re fond of referring to the Rodgers heel, the Hamblin eyebrows, and the Freeman frown. It is truly a journey of discovery. This page is edited often as new findings are added and inaccurate connections are deleted.

Ancestors who are underlined are linked to a post (or posts) on this blog where they are mentioned.
