"Where Did We Come From?"

PLEASE DO NOT REPRODUCE THIS DATA WITHOUT PRIOR PERMISSION, MAY CONTAIN LIVING PEOPLE'S INFORMATION

 

We have no idea where our LANDING ancestors came from. I am currently working on eleven different (unique lines) LANDING family histories throughout the United States. The locations of where the first three families (Thomas Landon/Landing, William D Landing, Michael Landing) lived are shown on the map to the right. The three LANDING families appear to have lived within 7 miles of each other during the 1750s-early 1800s. Parts of the third family (Arthur C Landing, grandson) moved to Tangier Island in the 1820s and then (Ezekiel Landing, son) to Mathews, VA in the 1850s. These three families are probably related but I haven't found the connection, yet!

This family research documents boths sides of our familys, the LANDINGs (Don Landing LANDING #1) and the SAUDADEs (Mary Saudade).

           LANDING Line        SAUDADE Line
  The descendants of Rachel Powell and Thomas Landen/Landing  (LANDING #1) from Worcester County, MD in 1814.   The descendants of Antonio de Medeiros Saudade from the Azores Islands in the middle 1800s


Many other surnames are included as they intersect with direct ancestors from both major family lines, LANDINGs and SAUDADEs. Please contact me, Don Landing, via email if you find a connection to your family or to let me know of any errors/omissions in this research.
