Brick Walls

These are the people that are my main brick walls.  I can track back to them, but either have trouble confirming their parents are just can’t find anything about who their parents were.  There are obviously a lot more places I can’t track back, but these are in the closest generations to me.  I’ll add more info on them later.

    My Williamsons seem to be from Arkansas and Illinois. But I’ll look and see if there’s a connection.

    Hi Randy,
    I am researching my g-g grandfather Samuel Young and noticed your Phelps County homestead info included him. I am trying to figure out his ancestry and noticed that his father was buried with Dales/Mussers “Mosers” in Centre County, Pa. Do you think that he and your Samuel Moser might have been related? Let me know your thoughts. Thanks, Bob Kellner

  4. Randy says:

    The Dales in Nebraska related to my family were first generation immigrants from England. Samuel Moser is supposedly from Pennsylvania though.

  5. Randy says:

    Probably not. I never have come across Young as a name in the family yet.
