Welcome to my family history website. This site contains research that I have conducted over the years of my ancestors. The primary surnames are Kates, Cates, Laughton, Gilcris, Hale, Perley, Shurtleff, Buzzell, Fowler, Francis, Millett and Scribner.
Although great care has been taken, I can NOT guarantee the accuracy of all the information on these pages. This genealogy is a work in progress which I do update frequently. Please visit again.

We've come to understand that who we are is who we were. - John Quincy Adams
We have to know who we were if we’re to know who we are and where we’re headed
