bluebird1929(*)comcast.net  Jerry Newman has been working on my family genealogy since 1983. Like everyone else I have many lines, but the lines I want to provide information on are:  GARNETT; JONES & PRESTON.

These three families lived fairly close together in Washington County, Maine and over a period of time there was some marrying between the families, especially the Garnetts and Prestons

On 1 Sept. 1851 Joseph Jones, his family and two of his nephews moved to potter County, PA. Within a fairly short period of time others in his family line also moved to Potter Co., along with some of the Garnett & Preston families. These men were all lumbermen and I guess the trees were getting
scarce in Maine. By 1869 everyone in these families had moved on except a man and three married women (and even some of them moved on later to Missouri or Wisc.).

Somewhere along the line other Garnetts & Prestons from Maine moved to the Eau Claire, Wisconsin area to continue in the lumber business. Probably starting about 1865 some of  the Garnetts and Prestons in Potter Co. started drifting to Eau Claire. The Jones Family members (my line) moved to Hamilton Caldwell Co, Missouri and took up farming and liked I said earlier by 1869 almost all three family
members had moved on.

All three of the families kept in contact with each other and visited quite often even having their pictures taken when  they went to visit and some of the Joneses even moved to Eau Claire at a later date.

A few months ago I printed out all the Family Group Sheets I have of the various family members that lived in Potter Co. and sent them to the Potter County Historical Society.

I'm in contact with quite a few distant cousins from these three family lines mostly in Eau Claire, Wisc.,  but also in other states. If I can be of assistance to anyone I'll be glad to do so or even put them in touch with someone who might be more closely related. I am related to all three family lines and through my research I've been able to join the Sons of the American Revolution and the Mayflower Society through my Garnett & Preston family lines.
