Allan Ralph Andrews, born September 13th 1939 in Long Beach, California at 4:03 AM
DNA analysis appears to connect me with William Andrews, born 1649 in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts, died 7 Feb 1716 and with his wife Margaret Woodward, born 1655 in Boston and died 1723 in Ipswich, there is also a connection with Jonathan Andrews, born 8 Aug 1695 and died 10 June 1759 and with Richard Richards, born 1724 in Baltimore, Maryland and with his father Edward Richards, born 10 April 1678 in Manchester and died 29 Nov 1756 in Baltimore and with his wife Mary Head, born 1690 in Manchester, England and died 1785 in Baltimore.
Now this creates a problem because the established ancestry, as discussed elsewhere makes Ralph B. Andrews (1907 – 1997) my father, Allen Shipley Andrews (1880 -1910), my grandfather, William D. Andrews (1859 -1932), my great grandfather, and Jacob Andrews (1828 -1912), his father, and Jeremiah Andrews (1790 -1857), his father in turn, and finally Jeremiah Andrews I (1765 -1828) the ancestor of this line who is said to have been born in Ireland. My father maintained that the Andrews line came from Boston. DNA links me with Catherine Neiswonger (1792 -1878), wife of Jeremiah Andrews II.
Is it possible that there was a confusion here and that it was Jeremiah Andrew’s wife Susannah Andrews (born in Ireland 1767) that was the source of the Andrews connections to Ireland and that Jeremiah I was actually a son of Jonathan Andrews of Boston, see above references. Jacob Andrews, the source of the information that we have, was a farmer and was supporting the Democrats when questioned about his origins, he may not have wished to connect himself with Boston, which may have been voting Republican at the time. In contrast, my father, now long disconnected from any agricultural interests, was a solid Republican and had no problem tracing his ancestry to what was, at that time, a conservative manufacturing state.
As for the Richards ancestry, that seems to relate to my Bosley line on my father’s mother’s side. More about that later. Looking at I have on Andrews, it seems that my Jeremiah Andrews line derives from Ephraim Andrews of Ipswich, MA, born 1724 and died 1779 in Marchias, Maine and his wife Anna Brown, born 23 April 1730 in Brookfield MA, and died 1771, her father Timothy Brown, born August 17th 1710 in Stow, MA and died 3 Jan 1770 in Swanzey, NH., and her mother Thankful Olmsted, born 15 Feb 1712 in Brookfield, MA and died 6 Oct 1743 in Brookfield, and her father Jabez Olmstead (1690 -1752) and his wife Thankful Barnes (1695 -1745), all of which seem to match my DNA sample in some way.

Margaret Hepner, wife of John Carlisle, was the daughter of Johanna Jacob Hopffner, born Aug. 6, 1755 in Eschwge, Hessen Kassel, Germany, died Sept. 1835 in Lisbon, Ohio. She was the daughter of Maria Dorthea Schumacher, born 1758 in Frederick County, Maryland and died Feb. 7th 1831 in Center Township, Ohio.

Anna was the daughter of Hans Peter Balssel, born 1704 in Klingen, Alsace, Germany and died 1778 in Frederick, Maryland and Anna Barbara Fenner, born 6 Jan 1705 in Klingen and died 27 Jan 1743 in Thaleschweiler, Bayern, Germany.
Anna Barbara Fenner was the daughter of Anna Barbara Agne, born in Thaleischewiler, Sudwestpfalz, Rhienland-Pfalz, Germany and died in Thaleischewiler. All of the above appear to have DNA connections to me.
The mother of Allen Shipley Andrews, see above, was Agnes Belle Thornburg, born 18 June 1855 in Mt. Pleasant Township, Washington, County, PA and died 2 Feb 1951 in Dennison, Tuscarawas, Ohio. She was the daughter of John Shipley Thornburgh, born 13 Aug 1817 and died 24 Jul 1894 and Eliza Jane Summerwell, born 1822 in Pennsylvania and died Apr 1864 in Newville, De Kalb, Indiana. John Shipley Thornburg appears to have been the son of James Shipley Thornburgh, born 1780 in Maryland and died in Knox, Ohio and Eve Coon, born in Virginia in 1782. The DNA evidence seems to indicate that James was the son of Benjamin Thornburgh, born around 1750 in Berkeley, Virginia, and died 1835 in Lost Creek, Jefferson, Tennessee and Mary Elizabeth Shipley, born 1753 in Howard, Maryland, and died in Baltimore in 1795. Benjamin Thornburg, 1750 -1835, appears to be the son of Benjamin Thornburg, born 7 Jan 1728 in Warwick Township, Lancaster County, PA and died 22 Jan 1795, Martinsburg, Berkeley County, Virginia, and Mary Brooks, born 1738 in Frederick, Virginia and died 4 Dec 1783 in Berkeley, James, Virginia. Benjamin was the son of Thomas Thornburg, born 1690 in Ulster, Cavan, Ireland and died 20 Jul 1758 in Lancaster, PA. and Sarah M. Haman, born 1693 in Cootehill, Cavan, Ireland and died 1758 in Lancaster, PA. Sarah is given as the daughter of Hans Hamann, born 27 Oct 1641 in Wurttemberger Hof, Schwabish Hall, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany and died 13 Feb 1703 in Bretten, Karlsruhe, Baden Wuerttemberg. Her mother is given as Anna Maria Eckardt, born 14 Aug 1652 in Bretten and died in Bretten 03 Mar 1703. Although my DNA appears to connect with all the above, there must be a missing generation connecting Germany to Ireland. If Maria Eckardt had a child born 1672, that child could be the father of Sarah in 1693.
The father of Mary Brooks is Matthew Brooks, born 1711 in Virginia and died 4 Mar 1765 in Winchester, Virginia. Her mother is Elizabeth Warren, born 1715 in Sptryl, Virginia and died 1759 in Winchester. Her father is Thomas Warren, born 1682 in Old Rappahannock City, Virginia, died 13 April 1749 in Anne Parish, Planter, Spotsylvania City, VA. Her mother is Mary Hackley, born 1684 in Essex, Virginia and died 31 Jan 1750 in Spotsylvania, VA. All of the above is supported by DNA evidence.
The father of Mary Ann Shipley appears to be George Shipley, born in Queen Annes Parish, Prince George, Maryland 20 Sept 1726 and died 12 Jun 1789 at “Shipley’s adventure” Anne Arundel, Maryland. Her mother was Catherine Ogg, born 15 July 1728 in Baltimore and died 1804 in Anne Arundel, Maryland. George Shipley’s father was Robert Shipley, born 1678 in Annapolis, Maryland and died 9 March 1763 in Annapolis. His Mother was Elizabeth Ketura Stevens, born 1680 in Dorchester, Maryland and died 1761 in Queen Caroline, Maryland. Robert Shipley’s faher was Adam Shipley, born in Yorkshire in 1650 and died in Anne Arundel, Maryland in 1696. His mother was Lois Howard, born in Anne Arundel in 1655 and died 1725 in Anne Arundel.
Catherine Ogg’s father was George Ogg, born 1667 in Baltimore and died Dec 1723 in Anne Arundel. Catherine Ogg’s mother was Mary Potee, born 1696 in Baltimore, and died 1735 in Anne Arundel. Geroge Ogg’s father was William Hoge, born 9 Feb 1660 Musselburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland and died 8 August 1749 in Winchester, Virginia.
All of the above are confirmed by DNA analysis, but so is an alternative interpretation through Keturah Shipley, born 1683 in Annapolis MD and died 1740 in Annopolis and James Barnes, born 1681 in Annapolis and died in Annapolis in 1726.
Eve Coon, 1780 -1810, was the daughter of John Adam Coon, born 18 Feb 1745 in York County, PA and died 20 Apr 1798 in Shepherdstown, Virginia. and Anna Catherine Strayer, born 18 Feb 1743, died 2 Jan 1797 in Shepherdstown. John Adam Coon was the son of Johannes Nichel Gohn, born 1714 in Walsheim, Bliesthal, Pflaz-Zwibrucken, Bavaria and died 1769 in Chanceford, York, PA. and Anna Rosina Crantzdorf, born Hornbach, Rimschweiler, Pflaz-Zweibruken, Bavaria and died 1768 at Rimschweiler, Bayern, Germany. Johannes Gohn was the son of Maria Sophia Bracher, born 1690 in Hornbach, Sudwestpflaz, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany and died 12 Nov 1769 in Pennsylvania. Anna Rosina Crantzdorf was the daughter of Johann Nichel Crantzdorf, born 1688 in Rimachneiler, Zweibrueckan, Bavarian Rhenish Palatinate, and died 1784 in York, Pennsylvania.
Anna Catherine Strayer was the daughter of Johannes Mattes Stroeher, born 26 Jan 1704, Neuerburg, Trier, Rheinland-Pflaz, Germany and died 27 Jan 1767 in Chanceford, York, PA and Margaretha Schmid, born 1710 in Wittlich, Trier, Rheinland-Pflaz, Germany and died 1760 in Lebanon, Lancaster, PA. All of the above appear to be confirmed by DNA, however alternate lines leading to Jacob Good, born 1722 in Mannheim, Lancaster, PA and died 19 Aug 1797 in Leitersburg, Maryland and Elizabeth Garber, born 1722 in Chester PA. and died in 1761 in Somerset PA, are also confirmed, including Anna Maria Rohman, born 12 Nov 1707 in Oberfustadt, Hesse, Germany and died 11 Oct 1783 in Snyder, PA also appear confirmed, just how these fit into the above lineages is not apparent at this point.
Eliza Jane Summerwell, born Pennsylvania in 1822 and died Apr 1864 in Newville, De Kalb Indian, is supposed to be the child of Patric Summerwell/Summerville, born 8 Aug 1789 in Moneymore County, Tyrone Ireland and died 30 April 1880 in Beaver County, PA and Martha Knox, born 1790 in Beaver County, Pa and died 1 June 1869 in Kendall, Beaver, PA. There is DNA confirmation to the link to Martha Knox, but not to the link to Patric Summerwell. The DNA seems to support that she was a child of Martha Knox by one of the Thornburg relatives of John Shipley Thornburgh as was adopted by Patric Summerwell. The Thornburg in question was possibly a child of Benjamin Thornburgh 1723 – 1795 by Charity Beeson, born 1731 in West Nottingham, Chester, PA and died Oct 1759 in Berkeley, Virginia. Charity Beeson was the daughter of Richard Beeson, born, Oct, 1684, in West Nottingham, Chester, PA and died Jan 1777 in Deep River, Guilford, North Carolina and Charity Grubb, born 29 Sept 1687, Brandywine, New Castle, Delaware and died 27 Nov 1761 in Guilford, North Carolina. The DNA evidence seems to point to some situation like that described above since it supports more than one possible Thornburg lineage and no possible Summerwell, Summerville combinations.
As with the Thornburgs, the DNA supports several different combinations of Knox, Allen, and Gracey, but the evidence is so abundant that it seems impossible that there is no relationship similar enough to those proposed to generate the basic relationships suggested here: Martha Knox as the daughter of Hugh Knox, born 1758 in Scotland and died July 1851 in Ashtabula, Ohio and Jane Knox, born 15 Feb 1765 in Rowan, North Carolina and died 4 Dec 1817 in Rutherford, Tennessee. Hugh Knox as the son of William Knox, born 1720 in Scotland or Ireland, and died 2 Mar 1778 in Berkeley, Virginia and Sarah Margaret Knox, born 1757 in Rowan, North Carolina and died 1830 in Rowan, North Carolina. Jane Knox as the daughter of William Knox, born 1757 in Rowan, North Carolina and died 2 Sept 1842 in Rowan, North Carolina. and Margaret Charlotte Allen, born 7 May 1737 in Rowan, North Carolina, and died in Maryland, 1777.
William Knox, born May 1736 in Colariane, Londonderry, Ireland and died 19 July 1776 in Iredell, North Carolina and Margaret Charlotte Allen, born 7 May 1737 in Rowan, North Carolina and died May 1777 in Maryland are the parents of William Knox, born 1757 in Rowan, North Carolina and died 2 Sept 1842 in Rowan. William Knox, born 1736 appears to be the son of Jean S. Gracey, born 1708 in Coleraine, Londonderry, Ireland and died 18 Sep 1772 in Rowan, North Carolina, and John Knox, born 1687 in Glasgow, Scotland, and died 1780 in Steele, Mecklenburg, North Carolina. Jean’s parents were John Gracy, born 1686 in Coleraine, Londonderry, Ireland and died Aug 1721 in Lauderdale, Alabama and Jean Sinclair, born 1686 in Renfrewshire, Scotland and died 1708 in Ireland.
Margaret Charlotte Allen is the daughter of William John Allen, born 1710 in St Peter Parish, New Kent, Virginia, and died 1786 in Grassy Creek, Granville County, North Carolina. William John Allen is the son of Robert Allen, born 1675 in St Pauls Parish, Hanover, Virginia and died 4 Oct 1756 in Henrico, Virginia.
John Knox, born 1687 in Glasgow, appears to the son of William Knox, born 1630 in Glasgow, and died 1705 in Castierea, Mayo, Ireland, and Elizabeth Crofton, born 1656 in Rappa Castle, Mayo Ireland and died 1733 in Rappa, Mayo, Ireland, the DNA connects with all of the above, but dates and places do not connect properly, suggesting that some of the intermediate connections are missing or confused.
Alice Mae Smith was born 5 May 1881 in Ohio and died Aug 1975 in Redlands, CA. Her father was John Alexander Smith, born about 1852 in Ohio, and his parents were James W.

Alexander Smith, husband of Edith, appears to be the son of an Elizabeth Whitfield, born 1690 in Smithfield, Johnston, North Carolina and died in Smithfield, Johnston, North Carolina in 1755. This Elizabeth appears to be the daughter of Matthew Whitfield, born 1666 in Surrey, England and died 1761 in Nansemond, Virginia and Priscilla Lawrence, born 1671, Isle of Wight, VA and died 23 Apr 1739 in Bertie, North Carolina.
Some DNA connection appears to exist between Nancy Akin, 1800 – 1884, and Elisabeth Aiken, born 1752 in Antrim county Ireland and died 1838 in Caldwell County, North Carolina, also Lewis Akins, born 1725 in Rockingham County, North Carolina and died 16 July 1791 in Laurens, South Carolina and his wife Elizabeth Mann, born 1730 in Charlotte, Virginia and died 1791 in Laurens, Laurens, South Carolina.
Mary Akin Wallace appears to be the mother of Nancy Akin, Mary is said to have been born about 1779 in Ireland and died 1850 in LKR, Harrison County, Ohio. There appears to be a DNA link to John Wallace, born 24 Jun 1687 in Manokin, Somerset, Maryland, and died 1755 in Somerset, Maryland, and his wife Sarah Newman, born 1699, in London, England, as well as with Sarah Newman’s father, Walter Newman, born 1656 in Virginia and died in 1729 in Cecil, Maryland. There is also a DNA link to Matthew Wallace, the father of John Wallace, Matthew Wallace was born 5 Feb 1638 in Glasgow, Scotland and died 1714 in Manokin, Maryland.
DNA supports a line running from a Bosley wife of James W. Smith, running from Joseph Bosley, born 1729 in Baltimore and died 18 May 1776, St Pauls, Anne Arundel, Maryland. His father was John Bosley, born 1703 in Baltimore and died 20 Apr 1772 in Baltimore, his father born 1668 and died 1715 in Baltimore and his mother, Mary Elizabeth Cume, born 1668 in Baltimore and died in Baltimore 1726.
