Welcome to our family history blog!

Basically, this blog is about YOU … building upon the ancestors and descendants of Herbert Draper Brown (1906-1976 – Schoharie County, NY) and Lora Belle Wheeler (1907 – 1990 – Delaware County, NY).
I have researched our family history for the past 50 years as time has permitted, and did publish one Limited Edition book on my first cousin, once removed, Sanford Dewitt Fancher's, 90th birthday.
In doing so, I have met and shared information with many interesting family members I never knew existed when I started my quest.
I am now focusing my effort in research and hope to publish the entirety of our Brown/Wheeler family history.
I am looking for others who will be able to help with stories, photographs, family recipes and, best of all, developing a solid interest in the part our ancestors have shown in creating our wonderful country.
In doing my research I have watched our ancestors come to our shores to become tillers of the soil and evolve not only to the protection and security of our country but, also, to become carpenters, a saw mill operator, nurses, milliners, a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, doctors, lawyers and, yes, even an Indian Chief!
As I indicated, when arriving on our shores our ancestors were also met by other ancestors of ours, the Native American Mohawks.
I am hoping this blog will spark an interest in family members to take part, as well as inviting inquiries and submissions from others who are also related or interested in our ancestors and descendants.
I look forward to hearing from any and all of you about our family history, stories, recipes, photographs, etc. They are all a part of what makes us who we are today.
I am hopeful you will enjoy what you see and will continue checking in from time to time, not only to read what everyone has to share, but to add your seasoning to the family stew, as well.
