From genealogical information passed down to me from previous generations and using
the resources of ancestry.com, I have put together a family tree of the Greek and
Hill sides of my family.
If you count my generation as generation 1, the tree extends back to include 33
members of the 8th generation back. The oldest American of these is Christian Sellers
Sr., born 1718 in Greene County, Pennsylvania. The oldest European is Johann Jacob
Greiner born 1712 in Thuringia, Germany.
Twenty-eight of the 64 members of the 7th generation back (my 4th great-grandparents)
have been identified: 24 are born in Colonial America in the mid to late 18th century
and 4 were born in the Alsace region of France.
Eighteen of the 32 members of the 6th generation back (my 3rd great-grandparents)
have been identified: 16 were born in the US and 2 in Alsace-Lorraine in the late
18th or early 19th century.
The tree is presented in 6 sheets: the first is my own tree extended back 4 generations
(to my 2nd great-grandparents) and then trees for 5 of my great-grandparents extending
back for another 3 to 4 generations. I have not yet made any attempt to follow the
European branches of my Sheridan, Locraft, and Kohlass great-grandparents.
