My name is Mary Annis and I am the Site manager of this site.

     This site was created using MyHeritage.com. This used to be a great site. Reserch information used to come with a paid membership, but no longer. As a result, when my membership comes up for renewing, I will not be renewing. I am sorry if this causes any inconvenience. If I wanted to pay this much for the information, I would have paid it to Ancestry..
     If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me.
     This is an ongoing project, there are bound to be mistakes. Please be patient while I work to make it all accurate. The earliest event is the birth of Richard Newton, in 1542. This site was last updated on Oct 22 2016, and it currently has 203 registered member(s). If you wish to become a member please contact me at


      The miscellaneous information is there in hopes to find a link. If no link is found, it is my hope someone can benefit by it. Also you will find several individuals not related. They have the surname of someone who is in my tree. Hopefully the connections can be made and if not, I hope they can benefit someone else.

So get a cup of tea, coffee (Hot or Iced) or hot chocolate and enjoy the site. Please come back often.

Have a great day!!

Local news:Newton Fire
Posted by: Mary Annis on July 3 2009 09:41
Recently I have come into the possession of the articles featured in the Coos County Democrat on the 1951 fire. Because of its content and the feelings of those involved, I have chosen not to publish it. However if anyone is interesting in obtaining a copy of these articles I can send it to you if you e-mail me at my e-mail address or send a request through this web site.

Genealogy:The meaning in a name
Posted by: Mary Annis on Feb 23 2009 21:27
The name Bedell means "Town Crier". The name Annis means "Big Nose". And not to insult the name of Annis, as I am one, the meaning is certainly true, as the Annis line still prevails with the "big nose".
