What’s in a name?

Val’s always poking fun of some of the names of my German ancestors. She’s pretty sure there’s a Friedrich Heinrich Johann Jakob Jingleheimerschmidt in my tree somewhere. I thought I’d share some of the gems I’ve uncovered from her side:

  • Minerva Belle Tobey
  • Charity Mack
  • Mindwell Mack (there were actually a few Mindwells)
  • Mercy Mack
  • Resolved Mack
  • Jerusha Spicer
  • Keziah Latham Spicer
  • Experience Geer
  • Patience Button (may or may not have been passed to subsequent generations)
  • Jemima Parke
  • Zilpha Meech
