The line I have focused on is my grandfather's line - the Cunningham/Bowling and Jennings/Stallings lines. I have learned a great deal about my father's lines - the Swier/Gearhart lines, and I also research my husband Steve's family, the Huff/Bolton lines and allied families.

This blog is not about me. It is primarily for sharing information on family history with my extended family. (Friends and family may ask me any personal questions they wish in private, please.) History for what families? Well, for the present, ancestors of Jonas A. Hostetler and Lizzie Miller of Ohio, and Eli E. Hershberger and Fannie J. Troyer of Ohio.

Jane's personal family history. All her ancestors were from central and southern England (Mercia and Wessex). A working class and lower middle class family. The most interesting ancestors were a Rifleman and the Battle of Waterloo, and his wife who was a field nurse at the battle, plus their daughter who assisted her mother though only five and then lived to be 94, and the last living British survivor of the battle. The next most interesting person in the family tree was a librarian.
I am a descendant of emigrants to the United States from a variety of places with diverse backgrounds: England, The Netherlands, Scotland, Germany, and Northern Ireland. And there are probably many more to be discovered.
