The Tomaszewski Family Tree Nursery

This page contains working notes on new discoveries not yet posted with their respective family names.



We originally posted the Tomaszewski Family Tree as a single webpage that grew to contain over 200 printed pages. At that point we decided to restructure the page because it was getting out of hand and taking much too long to download. Part of the results from that effort follow. Should you find errors or omissions, you can still refer to the original webpage.

Please Note: Throughout this genealogy a left handed prefix (1234_____) is a birth; a right handed prefix (_____1234) is a reference from a later relationship event (typically marriage). All references are bolded, and equal numbered left and right handed references (or just plain references - 1234 ) are always the same person. Use your browser's Find button to follow a lineage using the reference numbers (or follow the links on some individuals for pictures, or lines). Scroll to the bottom of the page for links to other family tree branches.

Sorry, This page is Under Construction

A hard hat is required in this contruction zone and you may not enter without one.

We have some new information left to enter, so please be patient as we extend this genealogy. Feel free to look thru our work in progress for a tidbit you might need, but be aware this is not finished. And please forgive if birth sequence numbers are not in order, but we are combining many different researches into a single source. We are trying to make sure every record is correctly linked and all data is accurate, with any exceptions noted. All dates are Y2K compliant, so this page should not self-destruct in or after the year 2000.




Positions Available


Available References: 7029 through 9999.

Open References: 10000 and up.

Current Full Range from 0000 to 9999, Original (paper) Range from 0001 to 2200, with many gaps; I never did completely figure out my Mom's numbering scheme (I wish I had found her card file summarizing the file drawer of documentation she donated to some library I am still trying to locate), but it appears to be based on the book "Randall Genealogy, 1666 to 1879".

My primary goals are to give each unique person their own number (for consistent reference within this documentation of our Family Tree), to fill any gaps (from my Mother's original sequencing -- long done), and to extend the tree in depth ,breadth, and accuracy, hopefully with links to living relatives, and to other researcher's connecting lines. My sequence number is a guide to the order that relatives were discovered and documented.

My tree is promiscuous, but I require one public record matching known facts, two private sources matching known facts, or direct contact with a relative who can convince me they have good, reliable, personally known details, before I will add someone. I take great pleasure in being contacted by unknown relatives who want to fill in some details and add their own personal details to extend my family tree. I will include living people.

I've got a pretty large research folder. I hope you will contact me with details I am missing that match what I have so I can extend my published tree. If there is a choice, I want to do free genealogy (and share the results).

Henry Van Aelst. b.15 Mar 1903 in the Netherlands; d. 15 Jul 1973 in Grand Rapids, MI. Married 21 Jan 1928 in Grand Rapids, MI, to Leona May Harvey, b. 21 Aug 1905 in Geneva, Ohio; d. 20 Jul 1979 in Grand Rapids, MI. (Leona had been previously married to Burt B. Randall and Henry M. Wilson.) Both Henry and Leona are buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Grand Rapids, MI. Louis Francis Van Aelst. Born May 21, 1929 in Grand Rapids, MI. **Henry and Leona Van Aelst were Louis' adopted parents. His biological parents are Claude and Mary (Korver) Harvey; Claude was Leona's brother. Died May 21, 2011 in Grand Rapids, MI; burial unknown. He married Gladys Lucile McCallum on 29 Aug 1949 in Grand Rapids, MI. Gladys was b. 29 Aug 1928 in Grand Rapids, MI; d. 6 March 2014; buried on Hart Island, Bronx, New York. I understand that Rosalee and Luann are daughters of Louis and Gladys. John is a half brother, but I don't know who his mother is. The other names you've listed, Cynthia, Andrew, Kathleen and David are not VanAelsts. Their mother was Catherine Morris and their father was Earl Hoadley. They are listed in Louis' obituary, so I can only assume he married Catherine at some point and they were his step children - no documentation yet found to verify. I have found documents showing Catherine married at least 3 times. From your site, it looks like you enjoy finding interesting history, so here's something: The Harvey/VanAelst line are direct descendants of one of the pioneer families of Ohio: George Beckwith and Mehitable Brockway. One of their daughters, Almira Beckwith married John Shaw, a British soldier who defected during the War of 1812; they were the first permanent settlers of Sheffield, OH. You can Google any of the names and multiple sources of history should pop up.

He was born in Fran klin, Mass., December 22, 1814, a son of Asa Childs, whose maternal ancestors were natives o f Wales. Asa Childs was reared to agriculture, was in fair worldly circumstances, and reare d a famnily of three sons and two daughters, of whom H. B. Childs is the only survivor. The e ducation of H. B. Childs was limited, and he began his business life as a wagonmaker, at whic h trade he had served an apprenticeship, which he finished at the early age of fifteen, fro m which time on, until he reached his majority, he worked as a journeyman, and then became pr oprietor of the same shops at Charlemont. BIOGRAPHY: September 4, 1839, Mr. Childs was united in marriage with Miss Emeline Hawks, als o a native of Franklin, Mass., and this union resulted in the birth of four children, three o f whom are still living, viz: Adeline S., wife of Edward W. Paine, a successful fruit growe r of Algoma township, Kent county, Mich.; Horace H., a manufacturer in Plainfield township, i s mentioned in full on another page; and William H., a miller, of Kansas City, Mo. BIOGRAPHY: In 1845, Mr. Childs came from Massachusetts to Grand Rapids, Mich., having previou sly purchased 491 acres of wild land near the city. In payment for I60 acres of this land h e made 127 one-horse wagons, and, in fact, in the same manner had paid for all the land ere h e came to the county. There were no railroads in the county at that time, Grand Rapids wa s a mere village, and Indians still roamed the adjacent forests. Agricultural implements wer e then of a make that we would now stigmatize as primitive, farm machinery was unknown, and o xen were used, both in the field and on the road, instead of horses. To the energy and enterp rise of such men as Mr. Childs does the county of Kent owe her redemption, although there wa s a period when his energies were sadly missed for awhile and his enterprises nearly lost t o the neighborhood. BIOGRAPHY: After having done much toward clearing away the forest, and placing the land unde r cultivation, Mr. Childs decided to leave the state. Consequently, in I856, he went to Chris tian county, Ill., where he passed nine years of his useful life. However, his attachment fo r Kent county, Mich., was never weakened, and in 1865 he sold off his Illinois estate of 50 0 acres and returned to Grand Rapids. Here he purchased city property and made his plans fo r erecting a paper-mill in Plainfield township. He therefore purchased a saw-mill on Rouge ri ver, in Plainfield, in February, I866, together with ninety-two acres, and to this he added u ntil he had about 200 acres in all. He completed the mill in 1867, the machinery for which wa s made in Beloit, Wis., and this was the first mill, up to that time, in which straw-board wa s manufactured west of Rochester. N. Y. In 1868 this valuable plant was destroyed by fire. I t did not, like the fabulous phoenix, live five or six hundred years, and yet, like that sam e fabulous bird, it sprang from its own ashes renewed and sound in all its parts and standin g on its own solid foundation within twenty-four months. Mr. Childs was not the man to be dau nted by a "little thing like that," but kept energetically at work in managing the mill unti l about I885, when he retired-a wealthy man, although really a poor boy when he began the bat tle of life. BIOGRAPHY: Mr. Childs was a friend of good schools and good roads-a part, indeed, of the plat form of the political party to which he first belonged ? the whig; later he became.a republic an. In religion he is a Congregationalist, and has expended a great deal of money in aiding t o propagate the faith and in the erection of churches. in different parts of the country. H e and Mrs.. Childs now live with their daughter, Mrs. Paine, who sees to it that their comfor t shall in no way be neglected. Like a tired warrior, who gazes in triumph over the field h e has conquered but still rejoices that peace has returned and that his labors have aided t o bring this return, Mr. Childs rests in the complacent contemplation of the field he has con quered by less warlike means and replaced idleness with prosperity. BIOGRAPHY: Mrs, Childs represents one of the sturdy old New England families, going back to t he Puritan days. Her father, Horace Hawks Childs, was for seventy years deacon of the Congreg ationalist church at Charlemont. He owned 500 acres on the. line of the Fitchburg R. R., an d but a few miles east of the farm is Hoosac tunnel. He reared twelve children, gave them col lege trainings, and one of the sons is still on the old homestead.

Should you discover we share a common ancestor, or if you can fill in some of our missing details, we would really appreciate receiving E-mail from you with the details, and if possible a URL where your researches are posted. This will allow us to add an appropriate link to join our family trees, making the work more interesting and useful to ourselves and to others. We will also be pleased to link to personal web pages or email addresses of anyone listed. Just let us know.

Several mathematical theorem indicate that each person on earth could demonstrate a direct link to any other randomly chosen person on earth using six to eight links, using a friend of a friend of a friend . . . type of connection. This suggests that four to nine more generations of genealogy are needed to make a similar connection between any two randomly choosen people on earth as relatives (I actually think the range must be one higher, but can't prove it yet).

How are things in Michigan? All is well up in Alberta. Below is a sort-of-bare-boned version of my lineage. Also included is a recently discovered second cousin (2X removed) who is still living. Dr. Ada is the same age as my mother, but two generations before me. We have conversed via snail mail. Anyway, it all starts with James and Maria Wightmore (just names, but they lived in Manchester, Lancashire, England). They had six (6) children; Samuel (1837 - ?), Martha (1839 - ?), John (1841 - ?), Ann (1843 - ?), Daniel (1845 - ?), and Elizabeth (1848 - ?). Samuel (1837 - ?) married Sarah Ann Griffiths Dec. 14, 1863. They had three children; Maria (1867 - ?), Albert E. (1875 - ?), and Samuel (1879 - ?). This is as far as I have gotten on their line. There may be more in a while... who knows? (They may also have spelled their name "Whitemore". It was recorded this way most of the censuses that I have heard about.) John (1841 - ?), my great-great-grandfather, married Mary Wite (1840 - ? ) in Manchester, England on July 31, 1861. John died when his son "was just a child" (1868-1873?). They had one son, James Alfred Wightmore (1865 - Mar. 01, 1929), who appears in your tree as #2516 Daniel (1845 - ?), Dr. Ada's grandfather, married Louisa W. Pimlott (1847 - ? ) date unknown (Manchester, England is assumed). They had five (5) sons; Francis K. (1868 - ?), Harry K. (1870 - ?), Clarence R. (1873 - ?), Ernest W. (1877 - ?), and Daniel E (1880 - ?). Ernest W. was married (I assume) and had a daughter, Ada (1923 - ), ( who is now Dr. Ada Wightmore) my second cousin, twice removed. I believe there are further descendants from Dr. Ada's uncles but this has not yet been ascertained. I know of no children or marriages for Martha, Ann, or Elizabeth. With regard to Andrew Williamson, we have not yet determined exactly where our ancestry coincides, but we are certainly within one generation (i.e. James is either an undiscovered son of Thomas Whitmore, or he is a nephew of Thomas). He will eventually turn out to be a fourth or fifth cousin once removed, I believe. I have also talked (via snail mail) to Eric Wightmore, an elderly beekeeper in Devon, England, who is (I believe) the great-great-grandson of Thomas Whitmore. Depending on who my 4Xgreat-grandfather is, we are either third or forth cousins twice removed. However, until my 4Xgf is determined, we know nothing for certain. All in all, this has been a very exhilarating experience. Thank you for turning me on to the thrills of Genealogy. Sincerely,   David   PS  I found the birth record for John Randall ____0000 c/w Elizabeth MORTON as being his wife.  This was on the IGI. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- John RANDALL Sex: M Marriage(s): Spouse: Elizabeth MORTON Marriage: Abt. 1665 , Washington, Rhode Island Individual Record FamilySearch Pedigree Resource File -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- John RANDALL Compact Disc #11 Pin #301711 (AFN: 4KQL-K0) Sex: M -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Event(s): Birth: 28 May 1629 Place: Bath, Somerset, England Death: abt 1685 Place: Westerly, Washington, RI -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Parents: Father: Mathew RANDALL Disc #11 Pin #302625 Mother: Ellizabeth MOORFORD Disc #11 Pin #302870 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Marriage(s): Spouse: Elizabeth MORTON Disc #11 Pin #301712 Marriage: abt 1665 Place: Newport, Newport, RI   I found lots of other stuff that takes the link back further, but I lost the edge, and I have to go back to reconstruct the data I lost.  It seems to me that Mathew was the third or fourth Mathew Randall in a row.  All this is from the IGI in Salt Lake City on the familysearch.org page BUT John Randall is from Bath, Somerset, England

Born: Abt. 1545     Place: Bath, Somersetshire, England Married: 30 Apr 1570     Place: Bath Somerset(shire?), England (This is assumed, place does not show in the records) And I think this is just about as far as we are going to get with the Randall lineage.   I was re-reading the intro to your Family Tree, and it shows "Widow Elizabeth Randall and her sons, Stephen and John, were at Watertown, MA, in 1653." John's father Mathew died in 1640 when John was only 10 or 11 yrs. old, so this may be the family.  Would John still be with his mother at the age of 23-4?  I guess that is the question.  I have not been able to find Stephen anywhere, however, so this may not be the correct family after all. Good wishes, happy times...   David  Hi Kreigh,   How goes?  Was looking through the Unknown list last night, and found that you didn't have the name of my grandmothers's second husband #2295.  His name was Percy Joseph Ruffett, and they were married Sept. 22, 1979. He died before Nanna.  My mother probably has more details if you want them   Also, my brother Alan #1914 was married to Jennifer Breedeson on May 17, 1986, and they have one daughter, Kate, born 1996    David
Hi Kreigh, How are things in Michigan?  Alberta is starting to cool off; winter will be here b4 you know it....   Found a lot of new stuff in coordination w/ Andrew Williamson, and we finally found out how we connect (6th cousins, once removed - I am one generation further down the line).  The great - great grandfather listed below, John, married Mary Wite (White) in 1861 (I have the ORIGINAL marriage cert.) and had J.

I have traced my family back to Simon Randall (born 1574 ) in Lincolnshire, England. He was the father of William Randall, who came over on the "Expectacon" , around 1630, as you mention. Simon Randall, born in 1574 in Grantham, England per Brian Randall of Rhode Island.
Hi Kreigh, This is what I put together re: English Randalls before emigration. These are all listed together in a pedigree file w/ the IGI (except for the Stephen; I found him one day...). I think that in the opening of your original family tree page, you had Widow Elizabeth and her sons John and Stephen somewhere in the New England Colonies in 1653. I believe that this is the line that starts your tree. (At least, that's my story, and I'm gonna stick with it) 8-)) I followed your format, but used the 9000's until I got to 0000____: John... 9000____: John Randall Born about 1545 Bath, Somerset, England.
