Athertons: Enid, Guy, Frank(lin)/Fred and Milton

Enid, Guy, Fred M. or Frank(lin), and Milton Atherton

It is my luck as an amateur genealogist to run into "brick walls" on the paternal family lines, but to find terrific information from the maternal lines. My grandmother's maiden name was Atherton. I can now go back a whopping three generations from her birth. Another brick wall is very solidly built around her mother's family line. However, beginning with my great grandfather, two great family lines open up, these being the Trowbridge and Van Bunschoten family lines. These both extend back to Colonial times, as you can see if I can get all of the content I have found on these families online! Read on...
