My 16 GG-Grandparents

Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings offers a challenge every Saturday night.  Tonight's challenge was to list your 16 GG-Grandparents, their date and location of birth and death, and their date of marriage.  Here is my list:

Paternal Side

Maternal Side

It should be noted that although Mary Ellen McInerney was born in England, her parents are both from Ireland.  Therefore, I'll count her as Irish for the second part of the challenge.  Also, although Rose Becker was technically French at the time of her immigration, she was ethnically German and lived in the region of France that constantly moved back and forth between France and Germany.

The presumed ancestry of my five gg-grandparents born in the United States is as follows:
  •  Britton Wainright - English
  • Alexander Jones - Welsh
  • Thomas Probert - English or Irish
  • Elizabeth Kinley - Pennsylvania Dutch (German)
  • Mary Elizabeth Diamond (Dimond) - English or Irish
I really enjoyed the opportunity to look at the all-American me by way of my diverse ancestors. What a great country I live in!  Thanks, Randy, for the idea.
