My Ancestors Signature #4 ~ Captain Daniel Wetherell


Signature 3D Word

How many of you have searched for any kind of photo of an Ancestor and you weren’t able to find one? Especially for one who lived before photography was invented? Have you ever looked through documents like wills, or marriage licenses and you discover that your 3x Great Grandpa had signed it? This signature is a little piece of him that was left behind. By posting it online we can preserve it for future generations.

  1. Valerie! Hope this reply concerning your post can reach you!

    Do you have a copy of McCartney’s ‘Virginia Immigrants and Adventurers 1607-1635′? Because on page 737 is an entry for Sackford Wetherell who came to Virginia on the Swann in 1624. You probably have the book and are aware of him already!

    And since Wetherell isn’t the most common of surnames, am I correct to assume that Sackford’ is an ancestor in your Wetherell line?

    1. No, I don’t have a copy of that book. I will have to get one! I have never heard the name Sackford before but I am definitely going to look into this. Thank you so much for bring it to my attention!!
