William Hitchcock came from England to Baltimore in 1670. I have a straight line to him including his grandson that was a prisoner of war during the revolution.

I am mostly Norwegian and some English. Now that I am thinking about it, since the Vikings f-ed the hell out of the Brits, I must be all Norwegian.

Still others were Cherokee that decided they did not want to take that long walk to Oklahoma.

In a nutshell- my ancestors were the ones that were too hard to catch!
Interesting! We could have a common ancestor or two somewhere. One of my ancestors was a French Huguenot named Pierre Chastain, who came over with his family from England, landing in Virginia in 1700. I've got French, English, Scotch (wonder if that's where I get my taste for a good single-malt?), German, Cherokee, and possibly Vikings in the family tree, based on research my youngest sister has done. At least 3 ancestors fought in the American Revolution, possibly 4, and one is buried at Arlington. Another is listed on a monument outside the courthouse in Asheville, NC as one of that area's Revolutionary War heroes.

Hey dog2000tj, I'm 1st generation born in America also. My parents came from Mexico though. And yes, they came here legally . Farther down the line they came from Italy, Spain and Greece.
