My name is Elisabeth Meier
and I started this site. I am a direct ancestor of William Thomas who came over in 1630 from Wales.
This site was created using MyHeritage.com. This is a great system that allows anyone like you and me to create a private site for their family, build their family tree and share family photos. If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me. I encourage everyone to add any information and pictures. This is your site too.
As most of you can tell I've added the family names as the heading so that everyone knows it's for all generations of those families. If you find anything wrong please send me an email so that I can correct them. The picture on the right of this home page is of the Thomas/Webster Estate. William Thomas was the original owner of that estate. He arrived in Marshfield, MA in 1630 on the Mary and Ann Ship. My sister Vicki and I went to the estate in July 2010 and I must say it was a trip I will never forget. We were given a personal tour. William Thomas's descendants sold the estate to Daniel Webster in 1832. In 1993 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Of course William Thomas is not the only direct ancestor that I have that has a very colored history. There are the Eccles that go all the way back to England.
The Tolleson family also goes back to England. My Great Great Great Grandmother Keziah Wilkins, who was married to Stephen Tolleson, line goes all the way back to William the Conqueror. Very exciting.
My Great Grandfather Walter Gist Tolleson founded the town of Tolleson, AZ and he was a very colorful man. As I remember he was very tall. There is a photo of him holding me when I was maybe a year old (not quite sure).
In 1986 there was a Tolleson family reunion in Phoenix, AZ. There was a huge showing of relatives and it was so much fun. Maybe we will have another one.
I have done extensive research on my biological father's side, the Baumans. Just recently I really was able to get quite far with my research.
Of course the Meier and Driscoll side is my husband's genealogy.
