"GENEALOGY IS THE PROCESS OF FORMING ASSUMPTIONS
THAT MUST BE TESTED TO DETERMINE THEIR ACCURACY."
HARRIET STRYKER-RODDA

MY NAME IS DONNA, AND I LIVE IN CHARLOTTE, MECKLENBURG COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA. MANY FAMILIES OF THIS AREA CAME TO NORTH CAROLINA FROM PENNSYLVANIA AND MARYLAND. MY ANCESTRY GOES BACK MANY GENERATIONS IN THIS PART OF THE COUNTRY. SOME FAMILIES THAT I AM RELATED TO AND THE NORTH CAROLINA COUNTIES THAT THEY LIVED IN:


MY HUSBAND, HARRY IS DESCENDED FROM THE FOLLOWING NORTH CAROLINA FAMILIES:

HARRY'S DOANE LINE CAME TO NORTH CAROLINA FROM MASSACHUSETTS, LEAVING BEHIND THE FOLLOWING ANCESTRAL FAMILIES:

AND FROM VIRGINIA, HE IS DESCENDED FROM:

HARRY'S GREAT GRANDPARENTS EMIGRATED FROM ENGLAND IN THE 1870'S FROM THE FOLLOWING COUNTIES:

I HAVE VERY LITTLE INFORMATION ON SOME OF THE FAMILIES LISTED ABOVE. PERHAPS WE CAN SHARE WHAT WE HAVE IF WE ARE ABLE TO ESTABLISH A "CONNECTION." I HAVE LOTS OF INFORMATION ON SOME OF THE FAMILIES, ESPECIALLY HIPP, HOOVER, JOY, LOVE AND ORR.

I'VE ENJOYED THE CONTACTS THAT I'VE MADE WITH OTHER RESEARCHERS OVER THE INTERNET. SOME HAVE LED TO BREAKTHROUGHS AND SURPRISING DISCOVERIES. AND, I'VE BEEN ABLE TO HELP OTHER RESEARCHERS IN FAR-OFF PLACES LIKE CALIFORNIA, TEXAS, ALASKA...EVEN, BRAZIL...WHO HAVE TIES TO THIS AREA. IF YOU WISH TO SHARE INFORMATION ON THE ABOVE LISTED FAMILIES, PLEASE CONTACT ME. I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.

MY "FAMILY DATA" AND MY CONCLUSIONS ARE NOT WITHOUT ERRORS! THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS, AND IT WILL EVOLVE AND CHANGE OVER TIME. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ANY RESEARCHER TO CHECK AND CONFIRM ALL MATERIAL IN WHICH YOU HAVE AN INTEREST, WHETHER IT BE ON MY PAGES OR ANY OTHER GENEALOGY-RELATED PAGES. THERE IS NO BETTER SOURCE THAN AN ORIGINAL SOURCE.

"If all else fails, I will retreat up the valley of Virginia, plant my flag on the Blue Ridge, rally around the Scotch-Irish of that region and make my last stand for liberty amongst a people who will never submit to British tyranny whilst there is a man left to draw a trigger." George Washington, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.
