The Britton family was living in Georgia by the mid 1700s but I don't know exactly when our immigrant ancestor came to America. They moved to Missouri by 1805 when it was still a part of Louisiana Territory after the Louisiana Purchase. After spending many years in Missouri, some of the family moved to Colorado.
Lightle Direct Ancestors:
It is suspected that our Hunter ancestors were originally from Scotland or Ireland and came to America in the 1700s. There is said to have been severe persecution there and this is likely why they left. I don't know where they first settled upon arrival, but David Hunter was born in North Carolina in about 1782 and later settled in Hopkins County, Kentucky where many veterans of the Revolutionary War had received land grants. I've wondered if David's father might have been one of those men. David Hunter's parentage is uncertain at this point.
John Brewer I and Mary Grove moved to Jamestowne, Virginia from London, England prior to 1616 with their children. The Brewer family settled on Brewer's Burough and Brewer's Neck, the two plantation being located in Isle of Wright County in southern Virginia and amounting to 1700 acres. Descendants gradually migrated out of Virginia and moved around a fair bit. Some areas that this direct line lived in coming years were North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri and Kansas. The Brewers were a very adventurous, fascinating and patriotic lot, including world explorers, slave owners, war heroes, and Indian fighters.
Our Waters immigrant ancestor was one of three brothers who came from Baden-Baden, Germany to New York in about the early 1700s. I believe they were among the German Palatines who escaped their homeland because of war and famine in 1709. Those of this group who made it to New York were put to work for the British Navy to pay for their passage, so in effect they were indentured servants. Our earliest known Waters ancestor, David Waters, was born in Massachusetts and the family eventually settled in Pennsylvania and Ohio and later Tennessee, Missouri and then Colorado.
Our Fitz Jarrell ancestors are said to have been of Scottish/Irish decent. The title "Fitz" means "son of" which would mean that this surname originated from the son of someone named Jarrell. The family settled in Deleware sometime before Ambrose's birth in 1753 and then migrated to New Jersey and later Ohio, Illinois and Missouri.
Reno Direct Ancestors:
Our Reno line was originally from France and were given permission to leave there and come to Virginia in 1688 with Nicholas Hayward's group. The English crown paid them to go and settle there. The family was substantial plantation owners in Virginia for many years. Zelious Reno was among the early settlers that migrated to what is now Kentucky (then North Carolina) in 1784. Their house there was burned down by Indians. His son, Thomas Peter Reno, moved to Illinois and then Missouri where the family remained for a long time. Fannie Reno eventually moved to Colorado with her husband.
Wilde Direct Ancestors:
Our Wilde ancestors came from Hampshire County, England to America in 1859 after joining the LDS Church10 years earlier. They traveled across the plains by handcart to Coalville, Utah where much of the family remained. Walter Henry Wilde and others moved their families to Carey, Idaho where many of his descendants still reside.
Our Clark line came from Derbyshire and Leicestershire, England. William Wood Clark brought his family to Utah in about 1880 after joining the LDS church, and later to Carey, Idaho. Alice Clark moved from England to Carey, Idaho in about 1910. Others of their ancestors remained in England.
Joseph Charles Clark and Alice Clark were 2nd cousins. Here is Alice Clark's ancestry:
