The asterisk* by a name shows a direct ancestor of mine. I have tried to provide adequate references, but my first postings in the late-1990s might not be footnoted. Please ask if in doubt! No entry here is "mass imported;" each has been individually added. This work is dedicated to those who landed at Jamestown, Virginia over four centuries ago, and to those already here who deserved a better end.
