Just a Few Things

I recently found out many things on my family! My great grandmother many generations back Mary Whittier is the daughter of Thomas Whittier the great great grandfather of Joseph Greenleaf Whittier the Poet! Mary and one of her sons died in 1698 after being severly burned by HOT water! This line goes down to my Sargent Roger HUNKINS who married Rebekka WHITCHER/WHITTIER whose line can be traced back to Thomas as well!

Ethan Allen the founder of the Green Mountain Boys/Men of VT was named an Outlaw by Royal Govenor or NY because he beleived in America being a free country away from Parliment Rule. So I'm assuming that this in turn made my Benoni an outlaw also since he was a Green Mountain Boy/Man.

One day I was in a chat that frequently "haunt" and we were discussing what our taglines should be. I finally settled on "Not Related To Daniel Boone Since 1896!" but the other three I considered were "A Descenedent Of FIVE Mayflower Passengers!" "Stealing Stoves Since 1892!" and "Wronly Accussed Since 1882!"
