Once, Twice, Three Times My Grandfather

John Bean (or MacBean), my 10x great-grandfather was born in Strathdearn, Iverness-shire, Scotland about 1634.  He arrived in New Hampshire 1660 as an indentured servant, essentially “owned” by Nicholas Lissen.  He ended up marrying Nicholas’s daughter Margaret… so I guess that’s how you really make your way up the ladder!

As I discovered today, John is my grandfather three different ways.

Once through his son Jeremiah Bean:

Jeremiah Bean (1675-1727)
Margaret Bean (1702 – 1756)
Mary Glidden (1736 – 1819)
Mary Gordon (1761 – 1836)
Gordon Folsom (1788 – 1813)
Charles Taylor Folsom (1808 – 1886)
Lucy Gilman Folsom (1835 – 1916)
Helen Maria Nason (1863 – 1912)
Lulu Maria Cairns (1888 – 1978)
Mildred Jean Forrest (1915 – 2006)
Frederick Clifford Thomas III (1941 – )

Once through his daughter Mary Bean:

Mary Bean (1655 – 1743)
Samuel Judkins (1686 – 1741)
Jonathan Judkins (1719 – 1791)
Jonathan Judkins II (1753 – 1830)
Jonathan Judkins III (1781 – )
Elizabeth E Judkins (1808 – 1886)
Lucy Gilman Folsom (1835 – 1916)
Helen Maria Nason (1863 – 1912)
Lulu Maria Cairns (1888 – 1978)
Mildred Jean Forrest (1915 – 2006)
Frederick Clifford Thomas III (1941 – )

And once through his daughter Margaret Bean:

Margaret Bean (1670 – 1766)
Joseph Taylor (1691 – 1763)
Mercy Taylor (1733 – 1765)
Tristram S Folsom (1761 – 1811)
Gordon Folsom (1788 – 1813)
Charles Taylor Folsom (1808 – 1886)
Lucy Gilman Folsom (1835 – 1916)
Helen Maria Nason (1863 – 1912)
Lulu Maria Cairns (1888 – 1978)
Mildred Jean Forrest (1915 – 2006)
Frederick Clifford Thomas III (1941 – )

About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
