"They who make researches into Antiquity,
may he be said to pass often through many dark lobbies
and dusky places,
before they come to the Aula Lucis, the great Hall of Light;
they must repair to old archives. and peruse many moulded and moth-eaten records, and so bring to light, as it were, out of
darkness, to inform the present world what the former did, and make us see truth through our ancestors eyes."

“The danger in tracing your family tree is that you may find an ancestor hanging from a branch, either by his neck or by his tail.”
George Bernard Shaw

"Lo, there do I see my father.
Lo, there do I see my mother, my sisters and my brothers.
Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place on Asgard in the halls of Valhalla,
Where the brave may live forever." - Old Norse prayer

She was born 12 Sep 1855 in Illinois and died 21 Feb 1938 in Mason County, Texas. This was one of my "brick wall" lines and individuals. Due to a family tree book authored and distributed by Rita Joyce Waggoner Eckles to the family, and the subsequent sharing this year in August 2002 by Polly Kuhrt Eckles, I have been able to solve a lot of the mysteries of our line which had been a problem for all my years. My mother is now 75 and this is the first time she knew her great grandmother's name or seen her face. "Good things come to those who wait!" Thank you so much Joyce and Polly.

    A very good time for both of them. They were happy and Mom had lost a lot of weight on the Medifast program but later almost lost her life from the effect of the program on her pancreas. I am so glad you made it, Momma. You scared me to death. I thought you really weren't coming home that time from the hospital. But you did look good. I love you, Momma. Lynn
