- Hi Tom,
I guess we are cousins of some sort. My dad's name was Hugh, how's that
for a connection?
I started this list because I became stumped. My grandfather said tha
Daniel changed his name to Cone and we don't know for sure what it was
before. I accepted that because Cone did not seem to be a Scottish name. I
have found that there are and were some Scottish Cones. I even found a
Daniel who had a birth registered in London in the 1600's along with several
other Cones on the same date. A geneologist told me that this was often done
"after the fact". I found a Leonard Cone of Neton, Hampshire, England born
May 27, 1597, his father being Henry Collins or Cone. I did all of this
research a long time ago on The Family Search IGI records. I looked recently
and could not find the website. You may be interested to know that Mehitabel
Spencer, Daniel Cone's wife, was of the same Spencer line as Princess Diana.
That makes us related to the future King of England. Are you impressed? Once
you link to a "royal" line, there is a lot of geneological record. This line
takes us back to a DeSpencer who came to England with William the Conquerer
When I was in Scotland several years ago, I went to the MacDonald Center on
the Isle of Skye. They had an inquiry about Daniel, but no more information.
They looked him up on their computer and found birth
information that he was born in Edinburgh in 1626 and his mother's name was
Sophia Boyle. I have not been able to find that birth record however. I
contacted the MacDonald center a few years later by email, and they were not
able to find the reference in the computer. I know don't know what happened
to this reference. It has all been very frustrating and I haven't had enough
time to get into it again.
I am glad you have joined the list. It has been pretty quiet. Perhaps
people will post their stories.

- Hi Jan:
Thanks for the info.
I had wondered about the connection to the Spencers. I actually have
two links to that family. Mehitable Spencer's sister Alice (Marah)
was married to another ancestor of mine named Thomas Brooks. The two
lines joined three generations later with the marriage of Nehemiah
Lord and Deborah Williams.
Although I'm still stuck on Daniel Cone/Mackhoe, the research (mostly
online) has been very interesting.
Good luck on your research.
- On the Haddam CT web page, they list Daniel Cone with (MackHoe)
after it. I don't think they listed it that way a few years back when I
started searching on the internet. I wonder if they have found a proof that
Daniel MackHoe on the John and Sara was our Daniel Cone.

Mchoe even in their DAR and SAR applications for membership adding to
that W W Cone who wrote Some Account of the Cone Family in America
after reciving back mail from those he wrote to and the fact is that
the book is written based on the replies he recived back in that the
responses were a sum of 98 percent from the Daniel Cone lineages. The
Southern group did write him but it was a write off on their part as
he did in fact write one rather boldly and so challanged him to write
and tell him who his daddy was if he could read and write. And there
is a copy of that letter. But take his book and see who did write W W
Cone with Cone Family information. It's sorta like fruing catfish
when you shake them in a bag of corn meal.After they are coated how
would one be capable of telling if that one was the one they caught
as they all will come out of the bag coated, and ready to hit the
pan. Some of the Cone genealogist can't even keep their William Cones
straight even by who they each were married to. Some even proclaim
one was having families with two differant women in two differant
Georgia Counties at the same time. I realize that some have notions
that Southerners are backwoods but give it a rest at least for those
gone on and even more for those who today bear the Cone name.
