This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews Henry “Hank” Z. Jones, author of The Palatine Families of New York.
We first knew Hank Jones as a regular on the show My Three Sons and as an actor in Disney Films. While he continued acting, he also discovered his love for family history. Once he realized he had German Palatine ancestors Hank Jones kept searching until he had discovered nearly everyone’s Palatine ancestors. The result was the two-volume Palatine Families of New York. Hank became a Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists in 1986.
We will talk to Hank about his Palatine research as well as his books Psychic Roots and More Psychic Roots. Tune in for a great show with one of America’s most beloved genealogists.
The Notorious Elizabeth Tuttle, published by the New York University Press, is available for purchase from major books sellers online and off such as Amazon.com.
The Notorious Elizabeth Tuttle reconstructs the life of Elizabeth Tuttle (1645 – after 1691), the paternal grandmother of renowned American preacher, Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758). Despite having son and grandson who were ministers, Elizabeth and the Tuttle family were marred by divorce and murder in the family. In this book, Ava Chamberlain gives voice to Elizabeth Tuttle, much of whose history to date has been presented by the point of view of her husband, Richard Edwards.
