Forgotten Families Of Our Founding Fathers
I’ve currently been doing research on both sides of my family and found out that we are related to some of the founding fathers of the Declaration of Independence. John Fenwick, whom purchased West Jersey and John Hancock are some of the well known relatives. But going back further, were related to the current royalty from england as well. John Fenwick isn’t mentioned much in history decause of a family secret. This secret was that one of his great granddaughters’ married her slave, and was given 500 acres of land called Gouldtown. It’s descendants have been here for more than 300 years and can trace themselves back to the Lenne Lenape Indian tribe as well as European ancestry. My family names also cross paths with these families. What’s interesting is that not only can i trace them back to England and Scotland but to the current names of British royalty today. I’ve been doing this research for three years now and had to take a break due to health issues. I currently have Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis and have reached a stumbling block in my research. I haven’t been able to afford the DNA test, but i’m sure that it will tell an exciting tale. I’ve also worked with NJN as a Community Advisory Board member for a project in Salem, NJ called the Seven Steps to Freedom( An Underground Railroad cell phone tour. I am an avid researcher and local history in Salem, NJ. I’ve also been able to trace some of my family back to some of the Royal Masons, Knights Templar, Underground Railroad, and the founders of some of the first African American churches in this area and Philadelphia. I can elaborate much further to tell you more if given the chance. My phone number is (856) 275-1460 and email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Everyone who’s heard my story has told me to write about it and so for the past two years that’s what i have been doing to preserve my family legacy. I am an African American female whom knows that in order to know where where you’re going, you must know where you came from. My health has gotten worse and I wish to finish my project with your help. Can you please consider my story and contact me when you can. Thank you and God bless you for all that you are doing. Oh, and I also forgot to mention that we may be realted through the Van Meter family which once owned our families. You did a show with a Kathleen Henderson, and after seeing the show, I did more reseach and found that the Quinton family married into Van Meter and Van Meter owned the Henderson family. My family names are Quinton, Henderson, Darby, Spencer and Thomas. I really beieve that we are related and if you contact me I can tell you much more. It will also shed light on just how close we really are and how most of our ties really do bind.
