Booth Tarkington – prize winning author.


Close!  Booth Tarkington as my sixth cousin, four times removed through my heavily documented Botsford line.  Our MRCA, Sarah Beard (1631-1689) is reported to be my documented 8th great grandfather, Samuel Camp’s (1645-1763) mother.  IF her dates are reported correctly, she gave birth to Grandfather Camp at the age of 14!   Since the Camp family is also well documented, but probably not by whomever put together this tree that Ancestry decided to grab, I should be able to research this questionable item and determine if the date is wrong or the person is wrong, or is she really produced children from the age of 14 through 31 when Booth’s ancestor was born.

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.
