Pat’s Surnames

I don’t intend to only write about my family lines, but I will be referring to them some (maybe even much) of the time.  And I’m always interested in finding/being found by new cousins!  So I thought I’d post the 8 surnames of my great grandparents here;  these are the lines I spend most of my time on.  Except when I’m researching my husband’s family – so I suppose I’d better post those names too.  Here goes:

On my father’s side the family names are:

  • Salt
  • Boothby
  • Coffin
  • Hockman (?adopted by Earhart and used that name)

On my mother’s side the names are:

  • Denman
  • Snow
  • Minor
  • Sweet

For my husband’s family the names are:

  • Greenberg
  • Levin(e)
  • Riddner
  • Scheier
  • Yellin

    Thanks for reading, Elmer. My sister and I had a wonderful time climbing up Denman Mountain and seeing the place for ourselves.

    My gg grandfather was William VanBenschotten Denman. Not sure I spelled his middle name right, but that was his mother’s maiden name. He got his name from William Denman who came from England in 1795. I’m not sure if that was his grandfather or great grandfather. I have a record of it somewhere. I’ve seen a copy of that picture of the house on Denman Mountain, and I think I’ve seen a copy of the deed, but I don’t remember seeing the piece about their marriage before. My grandparents took us up Denman Mountain to see the rock with the inscription and the foundations of the house and barns when we were kids and I’ve been up a couple times since. I enjoyed reading your messages.Thanks, Elmer

    Michael Denman & Elizabeth Hubbard are my 3rd great grandparents. Would you happen to know who Michael’s parents were? I’m related to them through my father Raymond Paul Denman>William Henry Denman>Jesse W Denman>Michael Denman>Michael Denman & Elizabeth Hubbard. Love reading your messages.

    I see you have a Snow in your line. I believe I have a Snow that married to a Childs? Can you confirm that? Maybe a Sarah maried to a Stephen? I am part of the Childs line, and I know there are many buried at this cemetery, including my ggggg grandfather Captain Jonas Childs and my gggg grandfather Daniel Childs. If you have any info on the Childs family that would be great. I am in contact with the Pastor, and he is contacting the Historical Society in Beckett, so I am hoping they will have something too.
