Genealogy is extremely important to the vampyre. Each house held ancient scrolls detailing family trees, life events and connections.
Much of the information about my family has been lost, forgotten or hidden away. As our numbers grow fewer, my research becomes more complicated, but all the more important. Included here is some of that information.
We remember our families; honor our lines. For blood is the life, and the bond is eternal.
A photo of family from my Scottish (Rothesay/Edinburgh) line (Roe/McAlpine) vacationing in Nice, France.
This is a rare photo of my great-great grandfather, Jonathan Roe.
Jonathan was a marine engineer and had worked for some time in Egypt.
A grave marker in NSW Australia (not at gravesite) for Rev. Robert Miller. He married Agnes McAlpine.
Their daughter, Esther Miller (great-great grandmother), married Jonathan Roe. Together they had my great-grandfather, Alexander Ingleton Roe.

My great-grandparents (Smits) came here from Belgium, where my grandmother (Elsie) was born. She later became a nurse and they all lived in Clifton/Orange, NJ. She went on to marry Douglas McAlpine Roe of Heart’s Content, Newfoundland. Doug was born to Alexander Ingleton Roe and Margaret Rowe. He was a Mason and chemical engineer. Elsie had five children with Doug-Doug Jr., Elizabeth (Betty), Robert and Richard (twins) and Donald. Later they divorced and she married Charles (Chuck) Anstedt. My father adopted Chuck’s last name. Chuck was also heavily involved in Masonry. Elsie had one daughter (Caroline) with Chuck. Both Chuck and Elsie are buried in Hawaii. Doug is buried in Florida.
Obituary for my great-grandfather Alexander Ingleton Roe.
Fortune Family. My great-grandmother is Babewyn (Audrey) Fortune of Colorado. She married Newton Hines and was a long-time resident of Reno, NV.
The word, “babewyn,” is said to have been used to describe the first hybrids, such as vampires, between humans and angels (Page 130 of Victoria Nelson’s book “Gothicka” also goes into detail about the term).
Audrey’s mother, Ethyl, went on to marry Walter Cain.
Her father, Walter Fortune, married Violetta Huddleston. Violetta’s notable lineage includes many of the Great Houses of Europe, as well as known witches such as Alce Young. They had one son together, Don Fortune.
As detailed on the Ancient Ancestry page, the Fortunes also descend from Attila the Hun and are members of the De Vere family.
Below is a photo of Audrey at her house in Reno.
My grandmother Mary Jo Milleria of Omaha, NB (married Walter T. Hines). She is of the Milleria/DiLorenzo lines. This includes Greco and Borgia.
Di Lorenzo coat of arms. The original family was English and came to Italy under the regiment of King Ruggiero. My great-grandparent’s families emigrated here from Sicily and eventually settled in Omaha, NB.
Unfortunately, Sebastian Milleria (my great-grandfather) was unable to find any family history while researching in both Rome and Palermo. It is assumed his line also emigrated from England at some point in history.
Great-great grandparents Arabella Givens (Hamilton) and Thomas Hines of Sedro-Woolley, WA via Oklahoma, Kansas and Kentucky. The root of Hines (Hine) means farmer, laborer, servant or peasant in English.
However, for the Maori, who have ties to a people described similarly to the Tuatha de Danaan, the word Hine means something very different. In Maori, the word Hine translates to “little girl.” The Maori creation myth also contains the word Hine. Hine-ahu-one was the first woman created and is known as the Earth Maiden. It is said she was made of clay from a beach. This would equate her to Lilith, as Eve was made from Adam’s rib.
Tulsa Tribune article on Delilah Givens (mother of Arabella). Her maiden name was Hamilton. She moved to Tulsa at 83 y.o. to live with a daughter (Mrs. I.Z. Jones) and be closer to her other daughter (Mrs. C.A. Silver). This also ties the Fortune/Hines lines to Tulsa.
My mother (Monica Hines), father (Richard Anstedt), grandmother (Mary Milleria Hines) and great-grandmother (Frances DiLorenzo Milleria).
Me and my younger brother (Nicole Anstedt and Joel Anstedt). We were born in Carson City, NV.
