dc.description.abstract The purpose of this thesis was to enable me to understand more fully where my ancestors came from, how they fit into the immigration patterns of the United States and what they were like as people. I focused on my paternal grandparents' family (Skerritt/Acheson and Maxwell) and my maternal grandparents' line (Henry/Steele and Neuhauser or Newhouser.) Through personal interviews and research into the movement patterns of my ancestors, I retraced their arrival in America. I also followed the paths of my ancestors as they pushed through the frontier to their modem day locations. I studied the lives of my ancestors for similarities and characteristics that have filtered through the generations to my immediate family.
