My Ancestral Families

My paternal BURGER, HALDIMAN(N), and WYSS families came originally from Switzerland to Tuscarawas County, Ohio beginning with the HALDIMAN family in 1837 and the WYSS family in the early 1850s. After stays of one to several years in Ohio, these two and several other Swiss families moved on to Moniteau County, Missouri, particularly between 1853 and 1858. My third paternal family moved directly from Switzerland to Montieau county, Missouri in the late 1850s. Intermarrying with other Swiss families plus some of the German and English surname families in Moniteau County, some descendants later moved west to California, Colorado, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Washington. Several descendants of these families are still present in Moniteau County today.

My maternal ADCOCK, AYRES, BAKER, BROCKMAN, DOOLEY, FUQUA, JONES (2), MADOLE, ROSS, SUDDRETH, and THOMSON families originally came to America from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and France. They first settled in Virginia and the Carolinas. After stays of variable lengths, descendants began migrating and ultimately crossed the Appalachians into Kentucky and Tennessee. By the late 1820s into the early 1840s, some had moved into central Missouri into what was then Cooper and Cole counties. As new counties were formed, they eventually ended up living in Morgan and Miller counties without actually having moved. Marriages between the above families produced descendants who later moved on westward as the country expanded although some descendants are still located in present day Morgan and Miller counties.
