This page was created for the purpose of getting some of the earliest members of this family group "on the map". Members of this family group have done their own much more extensive research.

 

There isn't evidence of a connection to Doncaster, West Yorkshire. Only a family tradition. Another theory is that the family originated in Ireland. Y-DNA testing should shine some light on this.

 

I am a bit confused about the death date of the family group's progenitor. See http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/NFLD-LAB/2013-06/1370387391 and http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/NFLD-LAB/2013-06/1370440663.
