My very large surname list

Like anyone who has done genealogy for awhile, I have a crazy surname list. I’ve identified all of my 2nd great grandparents, although there are 3 women that I haven’t found their surname.

I’m working on building posts with more details for all of these, but I thought it would be helpful to list them all out. There are many that I have identified past the 6th great grandfather, but I wanted to set a limit for this post.

The Pucket Family

Unfortunately, I don’t know much about the Pucket (or Puckett) family.

My 2nd great grandmother — Lizzie or Eliza — was born in Pembrokshire, Wales in September, 1852. She shows up on a census in 1871 as a cook. Shortly after that she immigrated to the United States and married my 2nd great grandmother Richard Berryman.

They lived in Illinois for a bit before moving to California. She died sometime between 1930 – 1940.

The direct ancestors I know:

  • Lizzie or Eliza Pucket (2nd Great Grandmother)

The Thierman Family

The Thierman Family has always been very interesting to me, because it’s one of the few families so far that I’ve traced back that originates from somewhere other than the United Kingdom.

George Henry Albert Thierman, my 3rd Great Grandfather, was born in Hannover in Germany and then immigrated over to the United States.

George spent some time in Wisconsin before moving to California. Some of the Thierman family also spent some time in Iowa.

Military service:

The Berryman Family

My first connection to the Berryman family is via my mother. Berryman is her maiden name.

I’ve traced the family back to 1836 when my 3rd great-grandfather was born in Guildford, England.

My 2nd great-grandfather emigrated to the United States and lived in Illinois. My great grandfather moved to California, and my grandfather was born here. Aside from the time he served in World War II, my grandfather lived in California for his entire life.

There are several members of the Berryman family that are veterans. They include:

Richard Berryman – World War II

The direct ancestors I know:
