Genealogy of Mary Abbie Childs
This website contains data on the direct ancestors of Mary Abbie Childs, born 1849 Henniker, New Hampshire, died 1912 California.
The research goal has been to trace her ancestors back to those who first immigrated to America. Most of her immigrant ancestors came in the Great Migration, in the 1630s and 40s, so her American tree is large - with three hundred known directs. Of those only seventy three have been posted so far on this website. Footnotes lead to the many more.
The research emphasis has been on identifying ancestors with some degree of certainty. So information on the website is firstly evidence of relationships. More biographical information can be found in the cited sources and by internet searches.
Direct ancestors are marked with a tree symbol, making it easier to navigate through children.
Sources are cited for nearly everything. All major sources for a person are cited at least once. Some cited sources contain much more information than presented here. Copies of some source materials available on request.
