My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wyoming, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Westovers and More -- Surname Saturday

The number of Westovers in my tree hovers around 920. I can't say I know where they all lived or what their lines were. My Westover line started in England, moved to Connecticut, then Massachusetts, where my ancestor was both a Revolutionary War patriot and then became a Loyalist and moved to Canada.


When reader Darlene wrote recently about her line who lived in Westover, Pennsylvania, I did a quick check of my file and discovered I had only a few from her line. When she sent a listing of at least 160 Westovers buried in the Westover Baptist Church Cemetery (in Chest Twp., Clearfield County, Pennsylvania), I knew this was going to become a nice project of mine.

I am of the Clearfield County, PA Westovers. My grandfather was Clyde Tobias Westover. He died in the 1970's at age 80. My father, his second son, is the only of four boys now still living (2013) at age 87. Your work is helping me connect some dots! Thank you!
