* Dates in italics are from 1900 Census Records
* Dates in block are calculated from ages given on 1920 or 1930 Census Records
* Most other dates are from Baptismal, Birth, Death, Cemetery, Ship Arrival, or Social Security Records

* The number in front of each name refers to their generation, and each generation is tabbed to the right beneath the generation above them. For example, someone numbered 3 is the child of the couple numbered 2 above him/her. Someone numbered 4 is the grandchild of the couple numbered 2 above him/her.
* Everybody is descended from Timothy & Ellen (numbered 1), who had 10 children (numbered 2). At last count, they had 40 grandchildren (numbered 3), 83 great grandchildren (numbered 4), and 207 great-great grandchildren (numbered 5). Later generations (numbered 6+) are too incomplete on this chart to be counted yet.
