Greg's Family History
Their Legacy – My Life
Please leave a comment in my Guestbook. Or contact me. Thanks!
Greg, I recently started the journey of searching for my ancestors and you have contributed some great documents from my 4th Great Grandfather Rev. Neill Johnson and his son John Johnson. The diary of their journey on the Oregon Trail was such an interesting read! I am so glad I found it on your site! I have found little information on my 3rd Great Grandfather Lysanus (LB) so it was neat to see a small mention of him being on the Oregon Trail with the family! I just wanted to give a big ‘Thank You’ to you!
Ann-Marie Werher referred me to your site. She has been in touch with you in the past, as we are related through the Tuggle-Helm connection. I was wondering if you can tell me how your family is related to James Douglas. I saw his name on your RootWeb data base. I would like to know if there is a connection to our family tree or if this is a lineage not connected to our branches of the Helm tree. If you can answer that, I would be most appreciative.
You have an amazing site, and are a gifted researcher. You’ve obviously put in a lot of hours on it.
Thanks for any info you can contribute to my question.
Hi Laurie – thanks for contributing to my web site. There are two people with the name James Douglas in my family tree. One, born 1288 is a 21st great granduncle (21ggu). The other, born 1265, is a 5th cousin 22 times removed (5c22r). Please note that I got this information from a source that is riddled with errors, so could be completely erroneous.
Both James Douglases are in the ancestry of Ruby McCormick Beard Tuggle, whose husband, Paul Butler Tuggle was the son of Thomas Tuggle and Annie Helm. That’s the Douglas connection to Helm in my family.
Thanks for the kudos. I have SO much more to learn! 🙂
