My Families are varied:
Goodlaw, Hampton, Newton, Rogers, Thompson, Trotter, Webb, Wheeler, and York from African-American lines from Bradley Co., Arkansas.
Byrne, Cory, Cunningham, Dowdall, Massy/Massey, Macumber, Packer, Shea and possibly Jaquay who came from Ireland, England, and Scotland by way of Ontario, Canada and upstate New York to Leelanau, MI and then Grand Rapids, MI.
Baker, Gilbert, Gordon, Grove, Johnson / Surfling, Lapham; Helsel, Holden, Morningstar, Porter, and Skiff, most of which ended up in the four corners of Kent County, MI at Algoma, Cannon, Courtland, and Plainfield Townships.
I have also spent time on my adoptive Great-grandfather’s family the Baileys (married a Porter) and their cluster lines (Groner, McCormac, Dunn, King, etc,) from Kent Co. back to Rhode Island because Grandpa was one of the first people to help me when I started researching the first time for a Girl Scout Badge (more than 20 years ago).
