James & Sarah Glaysher with Family, 1934
Welcome to our website
The Internet has made possible one revelation after another about our family. We keep making new discoveries and have created this website to share them with other family members and interested people.
Glayshers from Hampshire and Surrey, England, fought and died in WW I or served in India and emigrated to Canada and the US in the 1920s and '30s.
Our Stuck forebears settled on the Pennsylvania frontier in the early 1750s, soon temporarily displaced by the French and Indian War, with a few scalped and massacred in 1781, and served in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and WW II.
Great-great grandpa Benjamin McCalla may have lived through the infamous Andersonville Civil War camp for Union soldiers.
John Jacob Mickley, of Huguenot lineage, helped save the Liberty Bell from being melted down by the British in September 1777. "BECAUSE no People can be truly happy, though under the greatest Enjoyment of Civil Liberties, if abridged of the Freedom of their Consciences, as to their Religious Profession and Worship." -- Charter of Privileges, William Penn, 1701.
Carl Vugrinec, a Croat and Catholic from the ancient city of Varazdin, demobbed from the Austro-Hungarian Empire's army in 1919 prior to bringing his family to the United States through Ellis Island.
A heartfelt word of thanks to all family members who have sent me photographs and information. Feel free to download, print off, or save whatever family branch or pictures and documents you're interested in. If you have any other legal documents, such as marriage and death certificates, passports, citizenship, etc., I'd love to receive a copy.
