Manuscript Monday: Booth Antecedents

Among my family papers is this document: “Antecedents of Male Booth Line.”

“Antecedents of Male Booth Line” – manuscript

This line is accurate as far as it goes, but it leads to a different Booth family in the United States.

I have no idea who in my extended family created this document. It may have been Charles Booth Gessner, or someone else at the intersection of the Booth and Gessner families.

Part of the problem arose due to confusion between two early lines of Booth families. One detailed in Walter S. Booth’s genealogy and the other detailed in Donald Lines Jacobus’ genealogy. Booth’s line goes into County Cheshire, England, and Jacobus’ goes no further than the New England colonies.

Walter Booth has additional detail in his interesting volume which discusses this line, but it is not mine.

Thoughts?
