Events in My Family Tree: January 21

This is definitely proving to be an educational exericse, and it's improving the data in my family tree.  I'm learning (or relearning) new things as I look up people's events, and I end up filling in small gaps as I go, such as missing counties and some dates.  Plus I'll find I'm intrigued by someone, such as in the post for January 20's events.  I noticed that James Clayton Gaunt was listed as MIA during World War II, so I started hunting for more information about him, and now I have a lot more for his branch of my Gaunts.  Of note in this list for January 21 is the first set of twins to appear.


Heinrich Sellers, son of Philip Henry Sellers and Elizabeth, was born January 21, 1764 in Hilltown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.  He is my 1st cousin 6x removed.

Elizabeth Gaunt, daughter of John Gaunt and Jean Satterthwaite, was born January 21, 1767, probably in New Jersey.  She is also my 1st cousin 6x removed.

Susan Holsinger, daughter of David Holsinger and Lydia Mack, was born January 21, 1822, possibly in Franklin County, Pennsylvania.  She is my 2nd cousin 5x removed via the Macks.

Walter Foote Sellers, son of Edwin Elias Sellers and Olive Lay Foote, was born January 21, 1880 in Fort Mackinac, Mackinac County, Michigan.  He is my 4th cousin 3x removed.

Twins Adeline and Evaline Votaw, daughters of Daniel W. Votaw and Louisa Gaunt, were born January 21, 1883 in Wabash County, Indiana.  They are my 3rd cousins 3x removed via the Gaunts.

Eleanor Malinda Eckman, daughter of John Eckman and Martha Johnson Atkinson, was born January 21, 1902 in New Jersey.  She is the sister of my grandaunt Bertha Poinsett Eckman and granduncle Edwin Bunting Eckman.

Mabel Helen Gaunt, daughter of Joseph L. Gauntt and Rebecca Elizabeth Coverly, was born January 21, 1905 in New Jersey, probably in Burlingotn County.  She is my 4th cousin once removed.

Jessie Ozley Easlick, daughter of Vinton Thompson Easlick and Beulah Anna Elizabeth Bozarth, was born January 21, 1930, possibly in New Jersey.  She is my 4th cousin on my Gauntt line through the Easlicks.
