  • An Ahnentafel as a Record of Migration and Mobility

    D. Alden Smith

    Published Date : October-November 1988
    This Ahnentafel was compiled using family Bibles and other family records, wills, deeds, birth and death certificates, cemetery stones, census records, obituaries, documented genealogies, Massachusetts Vital Records, the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Torrey’s New England Marriages Prior to 1700 and many sources cited therein, The American Genealogist, the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, and the English Origins of New England Families (first and second series). My maternal great uncle, Everett Wilson, and my paternal great aunt, Mildred Smith French, initiated this compilation in the 1920s. People in generations #1-5 were known to them personally.

    From the arrival of the early Separatists and the Winthrop fleet, to the Great Migration and the dissemination of the colonists throughout the North and South Shores, this Ahnentafel shows the migration patterns of a large number of individuals from many New England families. From the earliest settlement at Plymouth (1620), individuals noted in the Ahnentafel spread quickly to Duxbury, Marshfield, Sandwich, Barnstable, and Yarmouth; and then inland to Carver, Middleboro, Bridgewater, Pembroke, Hanson, and Freetown. Settlers also quickly established homes at Dartmouth, Dighton, Taunton (1639) and Rehoboth. Another stream of immigrants came from Newport (1639), Middletown, Portsmouth (1638), Providence (1636), and Pawtucket, RI., and Swansea, Mass., to intermarry with Rehoboth and Taunton families who arrived from the South Shore. Other families first settled at Weymouth (1623), Scituate (1632), and Hingham.

     

    Closer to Boston, we see early families settling at Boston itself, Watertown, Charlestown, Cambridge, Dorchester, Roxbury, and Saugus. Further north, families arrived at Salem, Gloucester, Ipswich, and Newbury, as well as Hampton, Portsmouth, Dover, and Exeter, N.H., and Saco, Wells, Falmouth, and York, Maine. These northern families moved inland to Amesbury and Salisbury, Haverhill, Andover, Reading, Billerica, Bedford, Concord, Sudbury, Lancaster, Dedham, and Walpole. The mobility of these families in the 17th century is worth noting, as some descendants moved into newer towns and intermarried both with other older families and with immigrants settling directly in the newer towns.

     

    The general pattern shown in both North and South Shore families initially is that of movement in from the coast, as well as an evident mobility among a number of towns in the area. Finally, we see the migration patterns of a number of individuals from Massachusetts who left for Nova Scotia, and a large influx of Germans into Nova Scotia in the 1750s.

     

    The marriage of my parents represents a merger of migrations (cf. Philip S. Thayer, “Migrations and ‘Nodal Points”’ in NEXUS 4[1987]:230-31), a melding of primarily North and South Shore family movements. Other ‘nodal points’ are obvious throughout the table. A description of them, however, is outside the scope of this brief introduction.

     

    The general patterns noted in earlier paragraphs have many interesting exceptions. The immigrant John Turner (#8956, a great-great-grandfather of #559) settled at Saugus to work at the ironworks but had descendants who moved to Middletown, R.l., and intermarried with the Church family which had moved from Plymouth into Freetown. A late Church moved to Nova Scotia and had descendants who moved to Newburyport, Mass. Another line which demonstrates significant mobility is that of immigrant Robert Smith (#1024, father of #512) who arrived at Hampton, N.H., had a son who settled at Dedham, Mass., and descendants in this Ahnentafel who moved to Westminster, Mass., Bowdoinham, Maine, New Market, N.H., Pembroke and East Bridgewater, Mass., and then west to Gardner, Mass.

     

    One individual who showed great mobility in later times was Stickney Swett Gale (#54), who went west with the 49ers, fought in the Mexican War and the Civil War, and was imprisoned at Andersonville. His diary is now at NEHGS.

     

    Even with an Ahnentafel as extensive as this one, there are many unresolved research questions. After 10 years of work, I have been unable to trace my great-great-grandparents from Bourg-Louis, Quebec (#20-23). Hopefully a trip to Quebec will solve this problem some day. Phebe Saunders Ford (#39) left a Bible with her parents’ names and dates of birth and death, but John Saunders and Phebe Holmes have not proven traceable. Is their marriage recorded in Plymouth, Mass., in 1795, as that of Bille Saunders and Phebe Holmes? Who is the Mary Holmes of Marshfield whose illegitimate daughter Prudence (#37) married David Ford? Who was Prudence’s father? These Holmeses have, as yet, defied even the expertise of Herbert Holmes of Weymouth.

     

    Who was the Mary Baker (#145) who married John Ford? Was she a daughter of the Joshua Baker who married Sarah Cushing in 1730 in Pembroke? She had, among other children, a daughter Sarah Hawkes Ford and a son Joshua Baker Ford. These names are suggestive but a search of Plymouth County wills is the next step. Who was the Deborah Beals (#133) who married Simeon Jones? Was she the daughter of Jedidiah Beals and Deborah Bowles? Was Nehemiah Adams (#884) a descendant of William Adams of Ipswich? The name Nehemiah does appear in later generations of the William Adams family. Which Susannah Collins (#865) married Jacob Gale? Which Susannah Clark married Luke Morgan (#962)? Who were the parents of Christopher Columbus Geldert (#114)? If he was born on a ship in New York harbor, was the ship arriving in America, or was it sailing to Nova Scotia? Was his wife Margaret Dunbar (#115) from Scotland? She was clearly not a sister of the wife of President Zachary Taylor as claimed by F. Phelps Leach in Lawrence Leach of Salem, Mass. 11926], p. 52. The author would like to take this opportunity to thank the following people for their assistance: his mother and collaborator Virginia Wilson Smith, and relatives Danny D. Smith, Betty Sheldon, Jean Jess, Shirley Reddin, and Lewis Millet. Hobart Holly and Herbert Holmes also deserve thanks, as does the staff at NEHGS. As always, any mistakes are the responsibility of the author. All documented comments or corrections will be received gratefully.
