About us

Poem by: Lewis Sprangue Mills, M.A., Legends of Barkhamsted Lighthouse and Satan's Kingdom In an ever widening circle, Carry far the blood of Chaugham And his spouse, brave Molly Barber, Down the years with Adams, Hobson, Jacklin, Lawrence, Barber, Elwell, Webster, Doty, Berry, Cochran, And the thousands yet to follow~ I’ve been a family genealogist & Native American Researcher for over 28+ years and have traced over 55,000+ people for my family tree/research (Mother & Father’s sides) I’m the head Genealogist for the Barkhamsted Lighthouse Native American Tribe in Barkhamsted Connecticut along with being a true descendant of this line~ I’m working closely with several Archaeologists, Professors, Historians, Historical Societies, genealogists, family members along with several Authors on the Chagum/Chagam/Chaugham/Shawgum lineages and those of the tribes they descend from. I have traveled extensively in my search for our Ancestors mainly in the NY, CT, RI. MI, IN, MA along with Block Island areas on my quest. I am looking forward to many more journeys tracing my Native American bloodlines - dealing with much of early American History from the 1600's to the 1800's. You can follow more on our blog at This DNA project is about uncovering the truth piece by piece - together~ All DNA is put into categories: That of James and Molly Chagum's Children: 1. Chagum lines = (2) Son's - Solomon who married a Webster - NO descendants found yet & Son Samuel who married a Mrs. Green - we have little info on descendants from these line's as we believe Samuel changed his name - from Chagum and 'we believe to Green" 2. Barber line (Coni's line) = Daughter Hannah married Reuben Barber 3. Wilson line = Daughter Mary married William Wilson 4. Jacklin line = Daughter Mercy married Isaac Jacklin 5. Lawrence line = Daughter Meribah married Samuel Lawrence As for Susan & Elizabeth - one died young and other no children.
