Cole-Marriner Immigrant Ancestors

We are a nation of immigrants. Most of us descend from others who came to this land whether by their own volition or against their will. With this in mind, I will be documenting all the known immigrant ancestors for both my family and my spouse’s family. This is fifth installment of this series.

Finally, I have come to the last line of my family, my mother’s maternal family, the ColeMarriner line.

Now that the Watts immigrants ancestors have been documented in my previous post, let’s move onto the second half of the Watts-Stark line. Next up in my quest to identify my maternal grandfather’s immigrant ancestors is the Stark line.

Next up in my quest for identifying immigrant ancestors are the predecessors of my maternal grandfather. However, with the sheer number of known immigrants in his lineage, I have decided to divide up the Watts-Stark line, focusing on just the Watts forebearers in this installment and the Stark progenitors in the next post.

Taylor-Thomas Immigrant Ancestors

Imagine my surprise when I started to search for the immigrant ancestors of my paternal grandfather, Carl Victor Taylor, Jr. (the TaylorThomas family). With the surname Taylor, it is guaranteed that he has at least a few (okay, more than a few) British ancestors. However, after much effort through the many English surnames from that side, I was unable to determine his English immigrants. As most British lines in America extend back to the founding of this country, it is understandable.
