James Thurber – 8th cousin, twice removed – timidly investigating.


James Thurber arises though one of my favorite named ancestors, Thankful Isham, my 5 times great grandmother.  Then, four more generations to the proposed MRCA, Elizabeth Ingraham (1628-1660).  To get there, it was necessary to go through Thankful’s great grandmother, Hopestill Bullock (1659-1749) – another great name.   Why don’t we still use these names?   Anyway, there are no PRIVATE entries in either line, so I now have more on the TO DO list to prove out.   Walter Mitty, your life may become an open book!

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
