     My name is Cindy McCabe (IL), and the most current tree is McCabe2014.  I love the new ability to save records to the tree without having to type all of the information from the census records or other sources!

     This site is growing from DAR research from my aunt Bobbie Hollingsworth nee Clark (TX), as well as genealogy records from my grandparents Owen McCabe and Julia Kappus (MI, IL) and various cousins like Edward McCabe, Patty Riley, Kitty Riley Anderson and Bill Kaufman. 

     The paternal McCabe DNA Haplogroup is  R1b1b2a1a2f*, which originates in northern Ireland/Scotland. Our McCabe line immigrated circa 1850 from Scotland/Ireland to PA. Ancestors then passed through Ohio and settled in Charlevoix, MI before moving to the Chicago, IL area c. 1920s.  The Kappus/Bechel family line immigrated c.1825 from Germany (French occupied-Alsace area) and settled in Crawford Co., OH before moving to MI (1879), then Chicago (1881).

     Our maternal line dates back to colonial times. The Maternal DNA Haplogroup is U5b2c and includes last names  McCabe (m.1954 TX), Clark (m. 1923 TX) , Shockley (m. 1904 TX) , Taylor (m. 1872 TX) , Schooling (m. 1856 MO), Wormington (m. 1821 TN), Hawley m. 1799 CT/TN) , Steele (m. 1763 CT), Strong m. 1739 CT), Bracy (m. 1706 CT), Collyer (m. 1667 CT), Sanford (m. 1643 CT) and Ann Adams (b. 1624 in England)

     To date, I have used (1) Ancestry Library Edition, available only at your public library,and (2) Heritage Quest On-Line (free through our library), and (3) World Vital Records/SuperSearch/FAG  to fill in the blanks and document events.  Focus is on building a well-documented tree of direct ancestors to immigration to America. I find a researcher I like, then follow his or her name to the research.

     Gem- In the 1860 Census entry for Wm. B. Shockley, Sr. in Fleming Co., KY, the 99 year old must have given the census taker an earful. . .there is a handwritten note that he voted for Geo. Washington, twice! and voted in every presidential election since.
