Here's mine, don't have them all as there is an unknown father in there somewhere  :-


William STRICKLAND and Elizabeth RALSTON
Thomas ORME and Honora BRENNAN
John Jones BYERS and Elizabeth Ann GANE
James WILLIAMS and Annie CRISP


Charles BROWN and Sarah FOGG
William PROFFITT and Ann ALLEN
Not Known and Eliza Emma STOCKFORD

Can get 14 out of 16 for the next generation, the only gap being the Not Know partner of E E STOCKFORD that resulted in a daughter.

I havent traced down the male line .... bumped into a stumbling block some years back - should probably revisit.

1.  JOSEPH1 MOULE was born Abt. 1688.  He married MARY.  She was born Abt. 1688.
Children of JOSEPH MOULE and MARY are:
2.   i.   GRACE2 MOUL(E), b. 1709, Barley, Hertfordshire; d. Ickleton.
   ii.   JOSEPH MOUL(E), b. 1711, Barley, Hertfordshire.

Generation No. 2

2.  GRACE2 MOUL(E) was born 1709 in Barley, Hertfordshire, and died in Ickleton.  She married THOMAS LILLEY 1731 in Barley, Hertfordshire.  He was born Abt. 1710, and died in Ickleton.

Let's see:

Jane Martin m. Josiah Wells, New York
Sarah Nicholson m. William J. Connolly, Johnstone, Renfrewshire, Scotland
Mary Davey m. Timothy J. McClusky, Ogdensburg, New York
Margaret Moore m. Patrick Murphy, Cohoes, NY

Margaret Rose Ryan m. Daniel Gillen, New York
Sarah Heintz m. Charles Schmieg, New York
Bridget Finnerell m. William Davis, Orange, NJ
Sarah Scott m. James Hayes, Orange, NJ

Only 6 of the 16 were born in U.S. And I can't do the next gen completely as Sarah was illegitimate. She is one of my nearest and dearest, as, after a horrible life in Staffordshire, brought to U.S. by James for a better life, she died at 24.
Sligo: Davey (also Mayo), McCluskey, McNulty
Wexford and Staffordshire: Hayes, McClean
Galway and Staffordshire: Scott
Coventry: Wells, Collins, Palmer, Moody, Beck, Mickelwright, Husbands
Ireland: McNulty (Sligo), Kealy, Murphy (Carlow) Connolly, Gillen, Powell, Ryan, Moore, Martin
Davis from I don't know where originally
Stahl, Russia to England to USA
