A Photographic Scrapbook
Brown & Erbland Family History
New York State and Ohio
(Page Last Updated: )
These pages are maintained by Mardon Erbland with assistance from my sister, Marsha. Originally we thought that we had more photographs and information about Versailles than about any other branch of our family, so we focused this site on Versailles, Cattaraugus County, New York. As we started putting our family documents and photographs together, however, we realized that we had materials about many other people and places. As a result, the site has grown well beyond its original Versailles-only focus.
This ancestry chart (in PDF format) provides a snapshot of our known family history. (See our Meek Page for a caveat about the early Meeks.) A second PDF chart (11MB download!) focuses on the Erbland line and especially its roots in Alsace. Donald Erbland was accepted as a member of the John Stark Chapter of the Ohio Society of the Sons of the American Revolution on 1944-10-09, by virtue of his Meek linage, with National Number 64652 and State No. 3462. Although not currently an active SAR member Donald's son, Mardon Erbland, was accepted into the SAR in 1986 with National No. 125638 and State No. 6900.
