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 10 generations,

Place 7 generations,

Hutchins 10 generations.

Downs 4 generations

My maternal line has early roots in the Plantations of Maine. Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts Bay Colony and Martha’s Vineyard.
