  How did you find this site?: Looking for Stuckley Wescott info
Message: Hello, my name is M. Autumn Y. Speer. I'm a 12th generation descend of Stuckley Wescott through my mother's father, Edwin Wescott of Olean, NY, both deceased. My mother's name is Mary Elizabeth Wescott Yernberg. My mother married my father, Henry Carl Y(J)ernberg and had 2 daughters, myself and my sister, Mary June Yernberg Cable. When my father's family came through Elise Island, "Jernberg" is pronounced like "Yernberg." So they wrote down "Y." instead of "J." There are some "J's" that got through intact with the correct name.

Anyways, my mother's sister's daughter, Ruth Ann, did quite extensive work on our family tree. However, she died. Luckily she gave me printouts of her work. If you have any questions about it, let me know.

Though I have had no children, I have 4 stepchildren, but my sister has had 2 daughters, Allison Anne Cable Lawson and Bonita Barbara Cable Mazzone. Allison has had 2 children, Desira Daina and Padaric Lawson. Bonnie has had 1 son, Dominic Jonathan Mazzone.

Back in the 1980's I was able to visit Providence RI, and went to the historical center. Lo and behold, there was my name on file as a descendent of Stuckley! Wow. That was an amazine find.

Also I have done some research and found that Stuckley's descendents include: Dr. Wescott--famous for the Cardiff Giant hoax and Benedict Arnold, supposed traitor.

I don't know if you are interested in my personal info, but thought I would give it to you. Thank you for keeping us informed of our forefathers.
