Comments:i really enjoy looking at your site from time to time. having a very hard time finding andrew german's ancestors. apparently when andrew jr. married rachel tanner in ulster co. ny, his spelling was german. although, i notice when rachel died,on the death certificate it read rachel germond. i really think that was the original name.

Comments:Check out my Barnum family connection at Ancestry.com for a little info on Rachael Tanner who married Andrew German she had Margaret 1802(she married Zar Barnum) then there must have been some lost children because the next three were born much later Hubbard 1813, Nancy Ann 1815 and Smith 1820. Rachael died in 1859, she was living with Smith at the time of her death in Lenawee county Michigan.

Comments:Greetings Tanner cousins. My ancestors began with William & Mary(Babcock) Tanner in RI. Their son, Benjamin married Joanna Lewis. Their son, James, married Mary Wilcox. Their son, Benjamin Wilcox Tanner, married Polly Pettingil. Benjamin & Polly moved from RI, to MA, and finally to NY. Their son, Benjamin, married Lydia Sherman in RI, then moved to NY, IN, OH & MI. Their son, Benjamin Frankiln Tanner, was born in MI & married Harriet Oaks in MI. They moved from MI to MN, and finally to IA. Here's where we lose the Tanner name. B.F. & Harriet(Oaks) Tanner's daughter, Lydia Isadora, married John George McLeod. Their son, David, married Esther Cook. David & Esther had one daughter, Betty...my mother. That's my line.

What I'm looking for are photos or potraits of the Tanners from Benjamin Wilcox & Polly(Pettingil) Tanner back. Polly died in March 1866, so there could be an actual photo of her somewhere. If there are any pictures of Benjamin Wilcox Tanner (d. 1839), or any of his ancestors, they probably would be portrait paintings or etchings of some sort. Any leads would be appreciated. Thank you.

Comments:My Tanner roots come from William Tanner who came from England and settled in Dutchess County, New York (Beekman Patent, the "Clove"). He married Rachel DeLong in 1739 in Fishkill, NY. Their son Samuel Tanner married Rachel McIntosh, daughter of Alexander McIntosh, who came from Scotland. I come from their son, James Tanner, who married Annis Wales (from Scotland?). I have been trying to trace William to England, Alexander to Scotland, and find family info on Annis Wales. I am not sure if we are somehow connected to your line. I have found info that William came to England, after serving in the British Army, with two brothers and first went to the Susquehanna c.1743. Since he married in NY 1739, he must have come a bit earlier. Any info would be greatly appreciated!!! Beautiful website you have.

Comments:I have been tracing the Tanner family tree, so far I had traced it to England, Ireland, to USA New York. My Tanner family tree started here in the Usa in 1620 with Angus Tanner from Ireland, and again in, or around 1820 when Tanners came from England, There was a time when the great-grandfather of Daniel Boone, wife was a Tanner in England, they concidered to be friends, as their religion, before they came to the USA. There are many story's about Tanner's Corner in England and the connections to Ireland,that I had come accross.
Good day

My Tanner line also comes from Herkimer Co. , but from William Tanner of South Kingsston, Rhode Island. My great-grandfather came West during the Gold Rush and settled in Southern Oregon and Northern California. A Mountain and two lakes and two creeks were named for him in Southern Oregon, where he had his homestead.
