I am researching our related families with the surnames of Baker, Blakely, Blanton, Bradley, Brosius, Bunte, Ellis, George, Grimes, Head, Koch, Kraatz, Kylberg, McGaughy, Miles, Murphree, Neumann, Noble, Reid, Robertson, Robinson, Shoults, Stephenson, Wall, and Woolsey. I have also explored the lines of spouses where more than one sibling has married in.

James came with his father James from Coleraine, Ireland about 1737 and settled in Augusta Co., CA. His father settled in Lancaster Co., PA. They were of the colony that settled on Burdon's grant in the then Trans-Allegheny wilderness of WA.
John Robertson of Scotland was the beginning of the Robertson Clan. King James II conferred the Coat of Arms to him for saving him from a would-be-assassin. John's sons - John and James went to Ireland when King James II tried to colonize the island with Scotch Presbyterians to supplant the Irish Catholics.
If you study my sources, you will see that I haven't done much research before the 1850 census. I have some material based on Bible entries, DAR applications, local history books, and wills for earlier periods but need to do a lot more work on the lines further out. Please contact me with updates and corrections.
