The Gorse family on their farm in Vernon Co., MO, c.1890


These are the completely redesigned and rebuilt pages of the Seaver, Bilyeu, and Lowell family trees. Use the search feature on the left-hand side to find a specific individual, or use the Surname list to browse by family. There are also photo albums of people and of cemetery headstones, and documents such as newspaper clippings and items from history books.

Also included are major side branches like Arnold, Dobson, Gorse, Scott, and Jones/Misener. Individuals are continuously being added as I seek out the more elusive branches.

In the interest of open sharing of family information, custom-built, generated-on-demand GEDCOM files are available for download on each individual's page.

Please note that while I have tried to include as many side branches as seemed relevant, these are primarily ancestories as they pertain to my own family, and do not include every single member of their respective lines. For instance, the descendants of Richard Lowell are so numerous and sprawling that it would be impractical to include them all (I once tried). If there's someone you don't see who you think should be, please contact me using the contact link to the right. I may have information about them, and if not I'm more than happy to accept biographical contributions.

This is a work in progress. Please excuse the dead links and partially-built areas while I build them up.
