It's partly hearsay and partly truth... you decide!

Updated April 24, 2007

Ye Gads. What a bunch of mixed up relatives... they sure do and did get around a lot...always knew I had itchy feet to go somewhere... now I know why...Most tried to reach the west and made it as far as Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma Indian Territory, Missouri, and Kansas...a few went on to the west but not many. Sometimes it would take me weeks of searching to find someone. It has been a real trip through time...

From Massachusetts to Virginia, Tennesee, Missouri, to Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Indian Territory...and to think, it was by horse and buggy, no paved roads and no cell phones. How did they ever keep in contact.

Truth is supported by Census documentation 1850 - 1930. Truth is supported by any one I found in the Social Security Death Index. Truth is anything to do with Aunts or Uncles. (if mother wrote it down or I just knew it) Truth is what anyone I KNOW has told me and I can trust. Anything further back than 1850 may or may not be truth. Unbelievable what I found on the internet.. and who people would do to attach themselves to.

    I found this among my mother's pictures. I just think this is a hoot. All these kids and they don't even care that someone is taking their picture
