The Filson Family Home Page


Spirit of John Filson

Randy Filson's portrayal of John Filson

This website is dedicated to the families of Samuel Filson.  It is a place on the internet for his descendants to share family events, stories, history, and genealogy.  Anyone from the family may create Web pages on this domain ( and I highly encourage that everyone who wishes to do so contact me at

This web server was first built and put online in September, 2003.  It receives approximately 10 new visitors each day.  So, this is a pretty good place to come and be part of the 'family'.

Now, we need your help.  This site is just beginning, but we need a wish list from you.  We will write a section where you can post comments, make brief announcements (weddings, births, deaths, reunions, etc.), ask questions and/or vote on how we do business on this site.

You may view our comment/message section or add a comment.

The genealogical section was built around Judy FILSON Henselman and presently has a number of branches missing. Check out the family tree. A couple of Filsons have given me missing and or corrected information for our genealogy research section. Donald Greene was a great contributor to the research section and will be missed. You will enjoy seeing the work at Donald's website.

The famous Samuel Filson grave stone is shown while the writing was still visible.


Photographs from reunions and weddings.
If you email or send reunion pictures to us, we will place them on the reunion page.
