I am looking for anyone who may be able to help.

Growing up & thru the years, we had always been told that our great great grandfather (or even great great great grandfather)

had been left on a doorstop in England as an infant. Was taken in by the family whose doorstop he was left upon, and given his surname by this family, chosen from the Bible, ergo the name: Pharaoh

There seems to be many "Pharaoh's" around but no one to confirm or deny this tale as "fact" anywhere along the way. 

We would truly love to be able to trace our family back as far as possible, but have so very little to go on. Not knowing if this account is true or just a figment of someone's wild imagination or if they are just pulling our leg.  If anyone can help with any "Pharaoh" information, I would greatly appreciate it.

My family hails primarily from Virginia/Indiana/and Nebraska. With the bulk of them settling in Nebraska early before it even became a state. 

Thanks for any info/help you can offer.
