Family History has bee limited to the USA until I started
to trace my father's mother's line. This was done initially
by going through the Church of Latter Day Saints (LDS) Family
History Center data. If you have done any researching through
them, you know that they publish what is presented to them
but do not verify the information.
back along my grandmother's line led nowhere until I reached
one Elizabeth Bentley who was married to Jerimiah Bass. This
was six generations back. When I opened up EB's ancestors
infomration flowed out from before William the Conquerer.
If true I am the 30th generation after William.
William as generation one and coming through one of Henry
I 'Beauclek's' concubines, in the 4th generation, Bretagne
marries Alan Zouche ( Viscount of Rohan). Then follows six
generations of La Zouche's: Geoffrey, Alan, Roger, Alan, Eudo
(Eon), to Lucy. Lucy (b1275) marries Thomas De Greene.
line then follows 13 generations of De Greene's ( Greene).
They leave Britain in the mid 1600's and arrive in Rhode Island,
USA. Ultimately Bathsheba Noyes Greene marries William Bentley,:
Elizabeth Bentley marries Jeremiah Bass: Isacc Turner Bass
marries Weltha Robinson; Emeline Josephine Bass marries Henry
Dolphius Smith; in 1893 Hortense E Smith marries Jonathon
J Jones, who was my grandfather.
looks good on paper, but it takes only one error in this data
to change my heritage. I am looking for some resource(s) that
could confirm deny this information. Do you have the resource
material on the La Zouche family? If not, do you know where
I could get the family tree from the time between 1000 and
you in advance for any effort you make on my behalf. All information
will be appreciated.
