I’m a hobbyist who enjoys researching family history, reading about their life and time, and taking photographs of whatever catches my eye. Most of my post will be on family research. Please follow me in my ancestral journey. I hope my efforts provide helpful insight and leads to your family search.

The Stearns/Fletcher surnames are my father’s paternal side. The Nelson/Chase names are my father’s maternal side.  I listed my generations based on my ancestor’s arrival in America.

I’m 12th generation Stearns

     10th generation Fletcher 

     12th generation Chase

     10th generation Nelson

The Pease/Drown is my mother’s paternal side. The Place/Hutchins is my mother’s maternal side. I have been only able to trace the Pease, Place and Hutchins side back 4 generations. I was only able to find 1 generation of Drown(s).

My mother’s family is fromMaine. There is a fifteen year span of records that I haven’t found.

    • Thank you. Good Luck with your search. I hope I can be of assistance. What is the saying “Giant Oaks from little acorns?” I look at each acorn as a new tree to find. Happy Hunting.
