Welcome to my site. My family is both an adopted family and biological family.  My biological family is Kinney from New Jersey on my paternal side and  Johnston / Johnson( the family went by both )from New Jersey on my maternal  side. My adopted line is Sturkie from Texas on my paternal side and Hixon from  Alabama on my maternal side. Please do you own checking as there may be errors  in my research. I would like to thank all those who have helped supply  information for these pages. A special thanks to Bob, Brendan and Barbara.  Without them this would not be possible. 
 Thanks, Peggy

Naming Patterns
 You will often see the same names used over and over again in families. While certain  names are popular in different areas in different times in history, the repetition  could represent a pattern. Many cultures believe in honoring their elders and do so  by naming children after them. Angus Baxter in "In Search of Your British and Irish  Roots" describes a pattern that was popular in England in the 1700-1875 period:  •	The first son was named after the father's father 
 •	The second son was named after the mother's father 
 •	The third son was named after the father 
 •	The fourth son was named after the father's eldest brother  •	The first daughter after the mother's mother 
 •	The second daughter after the father's mother 
 •	The third daughter after the mother 
 •	The fourth daughter after the mother's eldest sister 
 If this pattern would result in a duplication of names — i.e., both grandfathers had  the same name — then they would skip to the next one on the list. Similar patterns  have been suggested for other nationalities. This could be a very helpful formula,  but many genealogists warn against giving it too much credence. Given human nature,  it would be very difficult to follow exactly. It would be pretty hard to convince a  new mother of her first-born son to name him after a drunken, abusive father-in-law  rather than her own beloved father who had just died.

I have been told that our family has a Native American connection on my biological  mother's side. To date I have not been able to find any link. I will keep checking and  hopefully make a connection in the future.
