Anthony Lubbers and Wilhelmina Hyink and family on their 50th wedding anniversary - 1933
Welcome to the genealogy pages of Scott & Kathryn (Leedom) Ives....
The birth surnames of my grandparents are Ives, Henderson, Kimball and Pino. The ancestry of many family lines with English roots has been traced back to colonial MA, CT and NY - many came to America during the 'Great Migration' from England in the 1630s. On my Father's side are ancestors from Ireland, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany and Wales as well as England; on my Mother's side are ancestors from Spain, France and Portugal as well as England.
On the IVES family, after finally learning that my 3rd Great Grandfather's real name was "Warren" and not "Amos" Ives (as his son Washington's death record lists it) I was finally able to recently connect my father's Ives ancestry back to William Ives who came from London in 1635 or 1637 to Boston, then on to New Haven CT in early 1638. Me so happy!
The names of my grandparents are Lubbers, Huenink, Leedom and Crowell. My mother's family is Dutch, both of her parents' families arriving in the Sheboygan, Wisconsin area from the Netherlands in the mid 1800s. Two major lines came from the province of Gelderland while another originated in Zeeland. Friend Gerrit Heesen in Heemskerk has helped me find more about almost every single family line in the Netherlands.
Many of my father's Leedom family were originally Quakers, arriving in the Philadelphia area from Yorkshire, England in the early 1700s. Related families include Bond, Jeanes, Steel and Staats as well as Crowells from Germany who migrated south to Tennessee, marrying into Pulaski Co VA families along the way.
