ICYMI: Christmas Names in the Ancestry.com Records

 This is an oldie however a family tree goodie for my devoted Genea-Musings readers —

I used to be devastated when, again in 2006, Dan Lynch posted about Christmas characters on his website, which has disappeared. I had labored on most of these names for 2 weeks and was ready for the “season” to publish them.

So, listed below are the remainder of my “character” findings (originally posted in 2006) with some current additions:

1) Ebenezer Scroggs (1850, Harrison County OH) is as near Ebenezer Scrooge as I can get.

2) Robert Crachet (1880, Scott County AR). One other Robert Crachet flew into New York Metropolis from Paris on Air France on 2 August 1956 – perhaps to carry out in a play on Broadway?

3) Three Grinch brothers (Charles, John and Lenwards) got here into New York Metropolis on 6 September 1875 aboard the vessel “Egypt.” There isn’t any phrase in the event that they got here to steal Christmas. Clearly, in the event that they did, they failed.

4) There’s a Jasper Magi and Baldermo Magi 
(1930, Fairfield County CT) however no Melchior; there are Gaspar Wiseman (1930, Queens County NY) and Melvin Wiseman (1930, Muskegon County MI), however no Balthasar or Melchior related.

5) There are 18 Harold Angel individuals within the 1930 census. No Hark Angel, nevertheless.

6) Sila Knight (1870, Randolph County, AL) is the closest to Silent Night time I might discover. A number of Silas Knight individuals.

7) There are 3 Noel Noel individuals within the 1930 census.  I do not know if they’re The First!

8) Angel Angel (1930, Maricopa County AZ) is likely one of the repeating angels, however heard on excessive?

9) Tlisted below are two Merry Christmas women within the 1930 census (there are many Mary Christmas females too).  

10) Holly Bush (1930, Roanoke County VA) stands out.

11) Christ Tree (1930, LaPorte County IN) most likely prolonged his branches.

12) Jessie Manger (1930, Polk County IA) – mother and father weren’t Joseph and Mary.

13)  Felix Navidad is within the 1930 Mexican census (thanks, Chris).

14) Pleasure Noelle lived in Blairsville, GA in 2000 (thanks, Chris).

15)  Angel Gabriel is within the 1940 U.S. Census in New York (siblings Milagro (miracle?) and Rafael) (thanks, Diane).

16)  Angel Hark is within the 1940 U.S. Census in Massachusetts (thanks, Diane).

17) Then there are Santa’s reindeer: Had been they:
* Cupid Wiseman
* Melvin Dancer
* Hugo Blitzen
* Chris Donder
* Rudolf Dasher
* Dasher Berry
* Prancer Saner
* Vixen Locke
* Theodore Comet

Simply questioning!!

18) You already know, if Bah Morgan (1900, Stephenson IL) had married Cecil Humbug (1900, Delaware County PA) we might have had extra Humbugs than we might know what to do with.

19) I am questioning if Alvin Monk (1930, Schoharie County NY), Simon Monk (1930, Lonoke AR) and Theodore Monk (1930, Cotton County OK) actually acquired collectively in 1958 to sing The Chipmunk Tune. Perhaps they weren’t a figment of Ross Bagdasarian’s creativeness!

OK, I am achieved! I hope you loved this little prance down Santa Claus Lane.
