Patronymics, Naming of Dutch Children In New Netherland

Vol 18, Iss 45 In searching through genealogy information we came across this interesting little tidbit of the naming of Dutch children in New Netherland. In the 1600s and 1700s, if you were looking for the parent of a person, the patronymic would tell you the father's given name, but not the last name being used. It was in the 1700, surnames became fairly firmly established so things got easier.

Fairmont, Marion County, WV

Vol 11, Iss 11 We found this unknown family photo in my Grandmother's treasure chest of genealogy photos. Why Grandma Contance Warwick McGill had it ... I do not know! The backside was dark and you could barely make "Palatine" scratched into the backside. The old photograph is one of those photographs you see on cardboard type photo-backing. When did they start and end doing photographs like that?

We did a Google search for Fairmont, WV and found some history of Fairmont, Marion County, WV.

Wilkes-Barre Crusade

Vol 3, Iss 3 Duryea, Pennsylvania - "I am enjoying your tales of Oklahoma. I wish you had some of Duryea, Pennsylvania. I have been searching for my grandfather (actually his burial site) for years. Death records for 1895 burned and no one has any record of where he was buried. I am continuing my search. Have some names of people who do research, and am trying to find someone who can read tombstones by going to all the cemeteries. I cannot climb the hills, and over the old stones, in some of the real old cemeteries. Going to go back to Wilkes-Barre (where I grew up) this summer and search some more. W-B. is close to Duryea. Would be a nice closure. He died at age 21, in some type of an accident. My grandmother (maternal) was widowed at age 20, with 2 children, and another on the way." -- Lanie, eberg@pouch.com [more]...

Pennsylvania Dutch Favorite - Chicken Corn Soup...

Vol 6, Iss 29 "      I wonder if these rivels and your Thrieviel could be the same thing? I can't find either in any dictionary at least refering to food. I do know that in my Mothers genealogy she had a g-great grandfather by the name of Jacob Treece and when I researched him he was German from Pennsylvania. The original spell of Trece was Dries, the D translates to T in the old English so this may be a clue. I thought it might be interesting to try to find out. My sister said our Mother learned this from my Father's mother and that she was German. I personally think she was quite a mix, according to my research. But I did find this recipe and it seems to be leading in that direction. "A real Pennsylvania Dutch favorite! I have made this several times over the years."

What is Real Reason Why The Heartland States Loathe President Obama?

Vol 14, Iss 43 Bayfield, Colorado - Why do so many alleged fair-minded Voters in Oklahoma, Kansas & Southern States loathe President Obama? Why do they believe all the absurd falsehoods spread through chain-emails, Facebook and other social networks no matter how preposterous they might be? This puzzles me to no end!

Is the ultra-conservative Republican ideology in these Southern States, including Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas, on the verge of parading, leaning towards a "kook-dom" of "wingnuts?" Why is this? How do we combat it and fix it?

It seems to be a widespread, far-fetched undeniably absurdity of internet of chain-letters,FOX rantings by Limbaugh and ultra-conservative media that suggest something else is happening in Oklahoma and other anti-Obama hotbeds?

NW Okie's Journey

Vol 18, Iss 29 Oklahoma - Well! We headed back to Northwest Oklahoma Wednesday morning. And would you believe, our SW Colorado monsoons must have been dragged behind us. Thursday morning, 5:30am there was thunder and a little bit of rain for a while and the temps were in the mid-90s. Suppose to continue tomorrow, Friday, too.

NW Okie's Journey

Vol 18, Iss 12 Alva, OK - Genealogy is a fascination for this NW Okie in many ways while searching for family surnames and the history behind them. What has always stirred my curiosity, where exactly did the WARWICK surname come from and is the Earl of Warwick have anything to do with the surnames of some WARWICK ancestors? I don't know the answer to the latter, but I include the history of Warwick's Castle and the Earl of Warwick in this week's edition.

NW Okie's Corner

Vol 15, Iss 23 Bayfield, CO - Still looking into the the December, 1941 trial of Kenneth (George) Root, who was arrested for the shooting death of Donald Lee Benson (1919-1941), at a luncheon held at the Rose Hill school, near Alva, Oklahoma. Chronicling America newspapers online only go back to the 1920's. Is there someone out there that could do a lookup in the Wichita Beacon, dated 3 December 1941 (special edition) for the shooting death of Donald Lee Benson and the trial of George (Kenneth) Root (11 December 1941?

NW Okie's Corner

Vol 14, Iss 44 Bayfield, Colorado - I have a good friend down in Houston, Texas I have reconnected with in the last few years, who has been in remission from Cancer for four years. Ellen, her family, and our family first met in the early 1980's when we were neighbors in Clear Lake City, Texas. Our sons became friends and playmates during that time. Like most friendships over time, you get separated and loose connection, but not forgotten -- only to find each other again thirty some years later.

NW Okie's Ancestrial Lineage

Vol 13, Iss 20 Bayfield, Colorado - Last week I promised a bit more possible information concerning a really distant connection to one of Benjamin Franklin's older sisters. As I have recently found, it turns out that Benjamin Franklin was a brother-in-law of the 1st cousin 3x removed of Samuel Geddes Craighead (husband) of our 2nd Great Grand Aunt, Nancy McGill, daughter of Wm Nathan McGill, Jr. See Notes and Link. In another feature of this week's OkieLegacy newsletter we have included a short biography of the infamous printer, inventor, politician, statesman and free-mason, Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790).

NW Okie's Ramblings

Vol 12, Iss 37 Alva, Oklahoma - Where has the month of September gone. I know it is only reaching mid-way, but why do the days past so quickly?

Only a little over a week plus a few days until Northwestern OSU has their Fall Homecoming 2010. How many homecoming does this make for NWOSU (a.k.a NTN, NSTC, NSC)? 1899? I have lost track, but know that I have run across the first homecoming somewhere in my notes and research. Maybe someone out there reading this could enlighten all us Northwest Oklahomans.
