Elias Genealogy

My interest in family roots began when my daughter came home from school with a story about how the colonists might have lost the Revolutionary War, had some Revolutionary War soldiers not captured a spy carrying the plans for West Point to the British. When I told her that one of the three soldiers, Isaac van Wart, was her GGGGG grandfather, she wanted details that I couldn't provide. I began by asking my mother and my aunt, and was infected with the 'roots bug.'  The rest - as they say - was family history.

I am a hobbyist, not a professional genealogist. I am happy to share what I know about my lineage (which can be found HERE) and would welcome comments, corrections, additions, and suggestions.

My major maternal lines are:

  • Dutcher
  • Fuller
  • Conklin
  • Ayres
  • van Wart
  • Roth
  • Dietz
  • Price 
  • Jaques
  • Oliver
  • Storm

My major paternal lines are:

  • Elias
  • von Arnim
  • Riese
  • Kauders
  • Frankl
  • Wolf
  • Beck
  • Kretschmar

There are lots of smaller lines and branches as well.
