This is our house.

My father's Family

My mother's family

My wife's family

I set up this site mainly for myself to remember my deceased family and to piece together what I have learned over the years. Unfortunately I have not tracked the sources of my information so some of it may be inaccurate.
I grew up in Michigan and my father's family goes back to Scotland via New England. My father's Campbell family noteables include my great great grandfathers James V. Campbell who was one of the big three members of the Michigan supreme court around the civil war and George Van Ness Lothrop an American ambassador to Russia. I am also a descendant of John Alden of Mayflower fame.
My mother's father was a auto executive pioneer descended from a Cincinnati furniture magnate and her mother was a Sherman of Ohio; my great great uncles were Senator John Sherman a presidential candidate and author of the Sherman Antitrust Act and General William Tecumseh Sherman, among others.
The more I explore my family, the more amazed I am. There are lots of links on this site leading to more detailed historical tidbits.
Thanks for visiting.
