I am a desc. of the Wellingtons, and have been going back through the old postings on this sight. I would love to connect with someone on this forum who seem to be very knowledgeble about this line. I am very curious about this WEllingtonia Book. Or on one of the old postings there was talk about papers being transcribed or scanned. My "local Iowa line" is Harrison, son of Charles, son of Lorenzo David etc. Evidently many Wellingtons ended up here in Iowa. I as the g granddaughter of Harrison have now connected with a cousin who is the grandson of Harrison, and he is very interested as am I in following the family line that seems to go through The Wellington men mentioned in the subject line. The one question I have is that it is rumored that we are linked to the "Duke of Wellington" but I find no basis for this...
So, if any of you wonderful folks who seem to have been working on this line for a few years would be willing to take pity on a couple of newbies, I know I would really appreciate any direction you would be willing to give. Thanks in advance!!
