My Troth ancestors were of the Quaker persuasion. My maternal grandmother’s mother was Catholic. My Williams family (in the 1700s) was Separatist Baptist. I grew up Southern Baptist and am now a Methodist. My husband and I were married in the Episcopalian Church. My Cherokee however-many-great uncle, Stephen Foreman, went to Princeton Seminary and became a Baptist preacher. It is certain that before that time these Cherokee ancestors worshiped in a different way. In each of my families, there were preachers – of different denominations.
It is quite likely that my Coca ancestors were Shepardic Jews (haven’t done all of the research on this Coca family who came from Spain to Mexico to New Mexico but all indications are that they were indeed Jews who were forced to leave Spain).
My results (not certain the criteria for this brief questionnaire):
- Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (100%)
- Orthodox Quaker (95%)
- Liberal Quakers (85%)
