Hello. My name is Daniel Maxwell, and I have now been doing Genealogy for about 7 years. Some names in my tree of importance are Maxwell, Scott, Chase, Gonzalez, Moore, Clifton, Elliott, Alvarez, Lee, Morris, Sawyer, Dillon, Batterson, Stephens, and De la Garza. Some other significant lines in my tree include Hotchkiss, Hume, and Hickox.
I am also the list administrator on Rootsweb for the Manautou family, a family of French origin with descendants mostly in the United States and Mexico.
I own a copy of the Ricker Compilation should anyone have a lookup request.
Started stub: Family:John Umfreville and Unknown (1)
2. Finish the English ancestry of Person:Richard Lyman (2).
3. Finish the English ancestry of Family:Thomas Holbrook and Jane Powyes (1), which I started a few months ago then stopped.

5. Family:Gerard Spencer and Alice Whitbread (1) - The Spencers need work.
6. Family:John Pabodie and Isabel Brittaine (1) - There does not seem to be a strong source on the Pabodie family?
and more long term
7. Clean up some of the pages (in particular, my more recent ancestors) I uploaded when I first joined. - Ongoing
8. Get the Eggleston book so the ancestry of Person:Bigod Eggleston (1) can be cleaned up and finished.
9. Finish ancestry of Person:Agnes Harris (2), a vast line.
Unfinished Great Migration ancestry
Person:Richard Terry (5) - CURRENT
Person:Simon Eire (3) - Ancestry of him is finished, but his children and wife could use some work.
Person:Thomas Besbeech (1) - source is mainly just a collection of church records which will take a couple hours to sort out into a workable family.
Person:Cotton Flack (1) - good source article but it will take some time to sort out since there was nothing for this family already on WR.
Great Migration todo list
Person:William Chesebrough (1) - currently a mess.
Person:Daniel Ladd (1) - data is there but poorly organized
Person:John Doggett (2) - a mess.
Person:John Eddy (35) - needs cleanup
Person:John Emery (1) - ditto
Person:John Gay (2) - needs work
Person:John Thorndike (2) - only using wikipedia as source (and the WP article is likely full of errors)
Family:Richard Baldwin and Isabell Harding (1). The entire New England Baldwin line, a very important family with many descendants, needs alot of work.
Robert Plotner Shepherd - is he a son of Philip Shepherd? Right now the only evidence we have is that he seems to have come from WV, where a marriage between Philip Shepherd and Elizabeth Plotner took place in 1821. Its the right place at the right time and he has the telling middle name Plotner. But is there any evidence other than being in the right place at the right time?
George W. Morris - seems to fit in all the right places to be a son of Jacob B Morris including Jacob's brother John leaving 300 dollars to George Morris the son of his youngest brother (who was Jacob), but George W Morris's strange death certificate with names seemingly pulled out of a hat makes me feel as though there is another missing piece to the puzzle.
William P. Dillon - with so many Dillon families in Tazewell Co IL in the 1830s and 1840s, its almost impossible to nail whose son he is. He doesnt fit with any of the known children or grandchildren of Daniel Dillon, whos family heavily settled Tazewell Co IL, but he is almost definitely related to them. He associates with them in court records. Clearly hes family, but how?
Thomas Scott - is he the son of Samuel Scott and Sarah (---)? All I have is strong circumstantial evidence, being that Thomas's children are with them in the 1850 Census and he is the right age to be Thomas's father. Have been unable to pin down where Samuel Scott died, so research has slowed to a crawl.
Elias Scott and Elizabeth Smith - where was this couple married? Elias is supposed to be a son of a Thomas Scott, but which one? Not being able to place this marriage and it not being in the book 'sources' say it is makes me completely unable to place this couple so I can go no further.
Hannah D. Parker - Alot of claims on the internet for her parentage, but zero proof. Shes definitely a Parker, proven by her marriage record, but there is no Parker family in the right place when she is married in Cleveland Ohio. She doesnt seem to appear in any records in CT. The best proof I have found is that she is supposedly the daughter of a 'Widow Parker' who remarried.
