08/29/2017  Welcome to my webpage, which will replace my prior one  at throckmortonfamily.com.  Here you will find sources of Throckmorton
history, Throckmorton locations, famous ancestors,  portraits, current family accomplishments and politicians.  We have an interesting history  and many
ancestral homes.  I started writing in 2000 with my first website and connected
with others.   It has been a joy.  Caroline Throckmorton Toepfer Lewin, Ph.D.  @throckmortonfam

National Christmas tree was greeted by Daryl Throckmorton and his family at W. Virginia state line.  Throckmorton’s cousin, Greg Moore, is the “head federal officer” of Willamette National Forest in Oregon, where the Capitol tree came from this year, so he was in charge of picking out the tree.

11/18/2018   I was not looking specifically for this.  Cousin Jean Helms emailed me that Florence Daugette  passed after the 2006 reunion trip.  I know Clarence (and sisters) attended and we used their copy of C. W. T.’s book to do the first reprint.  Both books were reprinted in 2005 and we used Col. Robert’s copy of the Sitherwood.  Had both books with us to show everyone on the 2006 trip.  Florence was descended from the Kentucky Throckmorton’s, their ancestor owned the Galt House in Louisville.  In one of the books there is a reference to Charles Dickens staying at the hotel and complaining of the frontier’s lack of civility, etc.  They are cousins of mine – just can’t tell you how many times removed – from the Virginia line.  Here’s the link on the hotel   “history:           https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galt_House

11/05/2018    Gunpowder Plot commemorated in UK.  George Washington called Guy Fawkes Day a grave insult to America’s Catholics. After the Revolution, America stopped celebrating it. Millions of British will celebrate it with “Bonfire Night.”  See more on plots page.:
