Re: Lines I am Searching - New Member
Thank you so much for your post! It is very exciting to correspond with someone working on these Weeks, etc. lines! I have never had anyone answer one of my posts on that line (that I can recall).
Is your Theophilus the brother of Thankful and both the children of Benjamin Weeks and Mary Chase? I have him with four children but no Ada.
I am working on documentation for the DAR on the service of James Mills. I already am in on my Fisher line via James Washington Fisher,Sr. I will order the reports on James Mills to see what is there. I was having trouble with the Rebecca Hicks/James Mills connection to their son, Shadrach Mills. I think I have it via Shadrach being named in deeds and a will (I think) of Thankful Weeks Hicks. Rebecca was the only child.
I would like to have a copy of the newsletter you mentioned. You may email directly to me at lindamaxwell44 @hotmail (omit the space before @).
Thank you for sending my message to your cousin who may be able to help.
I have a great deal of information on John Robinson. I was in Holland about 15 years ago and visited the Newkirk (New Church) in Amsterdam and saw his grave in the floor of the church but didn't know who he was. I missed the opportunity to take a picture. Now I have a clinet in Holland and I am going to ask him to go and take a picture for me. I always thought that Bridget (his wife) remained in Holland, but she sailed to America about 4 years after he died.
My line of Mills moved down into Georgia and then to Dale Co., Alabama.
I am so glad that I found this site. I hope to have more posts soon and I am always willing to help others, too!

> I don't have info on your Mills line after Thankful. I'll send your e to my cousins to see if they can help you. Most of our lines were in Pitt, SC, VA and then migrated south into Al., Ga., Fl. Have you checked with the D.A..R. on your RS James Mills? They can be very helpful.
