In Reply to: GEORGE, THOMAS 1635 by Sandy McDougall of 1062

I HAVE SEVERAL QUESTIONS FOR YOU. FIRST OF ALL TO WHICH OF THE TWO BROTHERS ARE YOU A DESCENDANT OF GEORGE OR HIS YOUNGER BROTHER THOMAS? SECOND OF ALL, I HAVE SEARCHED FOR THE NAME OF THE SHIP FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS AND HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT MAYBE THEY LANDED IN CONN. BECAUSE THERE IS NO RECORD OF THEM ON ANY SHIP MANIFEST FROM 1635 THAT DISEMBARKED AT BOSTON. INCIDENTLY, DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE ARE TWO BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS THAT WERE WRITTEN BY WALTER GEER (1923)AND JAMES HAMILTON GEER, MY GREAT UNCLE? THOMAS GEER(GEAR) DIED IN THE COUNTY OF ENFIELD,CT.IN 1722.GEORGE GEER BORN IN 1621 IN HEAVITREE,DEVON COUNTY,ENGLAND.,MARRIED SARAH ALLYN ON FEBUARY THE 17,1658.,GEORGE DIED ABOUT 1726? IN PRESTON,CT. SARAH ALLYN DIED IN 1723. THEY HAD TWO CHILDREN;1)JONATHAN GEER BORN MAY 26,1662.HE DIED ON APRIL 30TH,1742 IN PRESTON,CT. ,2)DANIEL GEER BORN SEPT. 1673 ., DIED ON OCTOBER 2ND,1749.THE TWO BROTHERS(GEORGE AND THOMAS) WERE SENT TO THE COLONIES BY THEIR UNCLE . EVIDENTLY THE FAMILY WERE LANDHOLDERS IN ENGLAND AND THE UNCLE WANTED THE FAMILY ESTATE,SOMEHOW A MISCHIEF OCCURRED TO THE TWO BOYS' PARENTS.(MURDER?) RIGHT NOW I AM STILL SEACHING FOR THE NAME OF THE SHIP THAT THEY CAME OVER TO THE COLONIES ON. IF YOU FIND ANYTHING, THEN BY ALL MEANS,LET ME KNOW. IF YOU HAVE ANY COMMENTS THEN TALK TO ME. I HAVE CIVIL WAR RECORDS. I HAVE THE NAMES AND NUMBERS OF THREE MEMBERS(GREAT AUNTS)OF MY FAMILY THAT ARE MEMBERS OF THE DAR. I AM IN THE PROCESS OF BECOMING A MEMBER OF AMERICAS' FIRST FAMILIES AND SONS OF AMERICAN REVOLUTION. I HAVE PERSONAL RECORDS AND SOURCES TO INVESTIGATE. YOU CAN REACH ME AT BETTY@ULTRAVISION.NET
LATER, JAMES LYNN BELL
