message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
i am decended from jacob/showalter, david/castor, then elizabeth funkhouser m. zacharia lewis main (the iowa connections) just wanted to thank both of you for your diligence in accurately stating facts, and not fiction. i have looked high and low for your book, daniel...couldnt find it, but the link you sent me on the funkhousers really helped....one thing to note tho...it really is just a coincidence, maybe....but up to and including my father, our family has always belonged to the UB church...confirming (to me anyway) the anabaptist theories.
again, thanks to you both for all of the great information you provide. as a side note, i am in the middle of preparing a term paper for my college "American Institutions" class (which focuses on the "american" experience) so of course, i am writing the paper on the travels of my ancestors from switzerland/sweden/germany to virginia, and then on to indiana and iowa..then on to the west coast....motivations, way of life, trials encountered...
again, thank you for your diligent studies, and your desire to share it with others....
