Welcome to our Genealogy web site. My name is Bill Colehour and I have been tracing the ancestry of my children since 1984. Much of the accumulated information is now available at this site. Like all works of genealogy this is a work in progress. Updates and corrections are appreciated.

Ancestors of Robert Allison Colehour for 12 Generations

Greetings Cousins et al,

After 35+ years of research I have finally recorded my findings in my recently published book "Ancestors of Robert Allison Colehour for 12 Generations".

Whether you are a descendant of Robert Allison Colehour or his father James Allison Colehour, your lineage is explored here back past the founding of America in 1620 and into 16th century Europe. Learn about Robert's ancestors that came over to Pennsylvania with William Penn in the late 1600s and many who came over in the Great Migration (1620-1635) to Massachusetts. His ancestors are shown to have come from Germany, England, Wales, Canada and France.

His pioneer ancestors helped found many New England towns, defended them from foes, fought in the Revolutionary War, were killed in Indian massacres and were upstanding citizens of their communities.

You will learn how you are related to many Presidents, Prime Ministers of England, Princes and Princesses of England, many current celebrities, inventors, politicians, artists, musicians, businessmen, etc.

Each ancestor has been fully researched and is fleshed out with details beyond their birth and death.

The book includes 475 pages, including an index. It is printed to order and generally takes about four weeks to be delivered. The cost is $35.00 delivered to your door (in USA). If you are interested in a book or have questions please email me at billcolehour@gmail.com to give me your delivery details. I believe that this book is something that every relative should share with their families.

The companion book on the ancestry of Robert's wife, Alice Mercy Wardwell, should be available in 2022.
