I am the great grandson (+) of William Raymond Weeks, of Connecticut and NJ, who is listed in http://www.famousamericans.net/williamraymondweeks/ . I know I (we) are related, in fact, I may have a copy of the history book donated by a "Randy" Weeks (which is a name I have been called) in Boston... but I do not see my grandfather(s) listed here anywhere... according to my families' geneology book, we have been closely related to Roger Williams and also Anne Hutchinson (a maternal GF William Aspinwall was a counsel in her defense...) GF William Raymond Weeks was a close associate of Lyman Beecher, Sr. and grade school teacher of his children Lyman and Harriet Beecher... my GF was rumored (he was an abolitionist preacher) to have been a link in the Underground Railroad... do you have any information that could confirm that??

I am looking for information on John H.? Wykes. He was a farmer. His son was Charles John Wykes, born 1818 in Liverpool, England. Charles was married to one Millicent Beardall on February 5, 1849, in the parish of Pepplewick, Nottinghamshire. Millicent's father was William Beardall, labourer. Witnesses at the marriage were Isaac and Mary Beardall. Charles J.'s occupation at the time was butler. Charles signed American citizenship papers on October 4, 1856. Some possible family surnames in Charles' and Millicent's children's names could be "Frency", "Eldrid", and "Harpp". Also, I have a photo of Charles J. and Millicent with their first child, Charles William, that I would like to submit. Thanks for any help. Kathy Wykes
