>From my research, I calculate that I am the 13th
Generation descended from Robert and Phebe DRIVER of Lynn, MA
(Massachusetts). My Great Grandfather was William McCulloch DRIVER, b.
24 Aug 1870, Shillong, India; d. 10 Apr 1947, Clinton, IA. His father
was Andrew Brown DRIVER , b. 17 Nov 1842, Beverly, MA, d. unknown.

My branch of DRIVER lived mainly in Massachusetts, until my Grandfather
Prescott Oliver DRIVER moved to Iowa in the late 1940's after he served
in the Navy during WWI. Our lineage has gotten very short and there are
not many left, so this makes my research all the more important.

I have copied an old posting from RootsWeb (1999) which lists my lineage.
You might have seen some of the postings, photos and letters that I have submitted to
the Driver Family web site. I haven't been doing much genealogy lately as
I have been busy with the next generation, namely my 8 year old son!
