Who is your 666 Ancestor?

Since this is 6 June 2006 (6-6-6), I thought it would be cool to find out who ancestor #666 in my ahnentafel list is.

Well, he is one of the maternal great-grandfathers of Rebecca Phipps (who married Richard Marshman in 1778 in Wiltshire in England). I have no clue who #666 is. This person is buried pretty deep in one of my "brick walls."

My father's #666 is George Wheeler (born before 18 March 1605/6 in Cranfield, Bedfordshire in England, died 2 May 1687 in Concord, Middlesex County, MA), who married Katherine Penn 8 June 1630 in Cranfield in Bedfordshire, England.

My mother's #666 is a second great-grandfather of Ranslow Smith (born 11 July 1805 in NY, died after 1870 prob. in Taylor county, IA), who married Mary Bell before 1836 in Henderson, Jefferson County, NY. I obviously don't know thie name of this guy either, since Ranslow smith's parentage is another "brick wall" for me.

Oh well, it was an interesting exercise!

Hmm, maybe I shoulda gone for #6606 or 662006. I don't know who they are either.

How about you, do you know who your #666 is?
