” Founding Father Family Trees and Bios
WikiTree is my new collaborative history project. Participants have started pages for Green Mountain Boy Ethan Allen, giant Virginian Peter Francisco, philosopher-entrepreneur Benjamin Franklin, bold Declaration-signer John Hancock, Federalist John Jay, President Thomas Jefferson, financial wizard Haym Salomon, General Henry Knox, President James Madison, rabble-rouser Thomas Paine, flag seamstress Betsy Ross, and cousin-of-George Lieutenant Colonel William Washington. There are also interesting pages for Founder of the Daughters of the American Revolution founder Flora Adams Darling and anthem-writer Francis Scott Key. Please check out WikiTree. You might be able to contribute something about one of the founding fathers, or you might want to start your own family history.
Browse Thomas Jefferson art prints, George Washington posters, founding fathers clip art, early American flag clip art, and more.”
