Browningsville Connections

Genealogy. The logo of Columbia, Maryland, where I live, is a "people tree." It could be the logo for any genealogist. Two parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, 16 great-great-grandparents. Four generations per century. Go back a thousand years, and you have more ancestors than there were people on earth. Sooner or later, every single one of us is a cousin to all the rest.

Browningsville, Maryland. Here my father was born, here his great-grandfather Day settled after his service in the Revolution. Here dozens of farmer neighbors joined the local militia units en masse in the Revolution, and here they had their children and grandchildren. Here many of those children and grandchildren intermarried, doing their courting no farther than you could drive a horse and buggy on a Sunday afternoon, and now we have....Browningsville Connections.

Ancestor Tables

  • On the Family Tree Maker site, I have a page also called Browningsville Connections. From this site you can proceed to an "ahnentafel" or ancestor table, which now, via a dubious link or two, goes back to some shadowy medieval people in Wales.
  • Another version of the ahnentafel is posted right on this site, in text format, with links to the biographical pages below. This ahnentafel is usually the most up to date. It is broken down into historical periods as follows: Check the bottom of the file to see when it was last updated.

    Ancestor Biographies
  • Before the Revolution.

  • Revolutionary War Era.

    Family Researchers

    Here are some other researchers on-line who are working on the same families
  • My fifth cousin, Janice Taylor has been the major source of information about William Beall of Long Lookt For.
  • A fourth cousin, Mollie King, has a web site for The King Family in Maryland
  • Other Sites


    In order to research my own ancestors, I have developed databases of all the Beall, Walker, Day, and Lewis information I can find in Maryland, before 1800. If you are interested, send me an email and I'll email you the databases. All are in MS Word, except the Beall database, which is still in Wordperfect 5.1 (but you can view it with MS Word). I put the lines of descent and your own contact information in the database so that it's there in case some future researcher finds that he or she shares with you a common interest.

    Genealogy Web Sites

    Here are some other Genealogy web sites and forums of interest
  • Everton's Genealogical Helper
  • Ancestry.com contains extensive information available on a paid subscription basis, but still makes available a number of family tree files free for viewing and downloading.
  • Beall Page
  • Genforum contains forums by family name and geographical entity in a very easy to use format.
  • The Mormon Family Search site contains an amazing quantity of linkages to European families. These are as submitted and therefore have not been verified, but make a good beginning for research -- or just good fun.
