I found some new information on my second great grandparents (individually).. I also found that some of what I'd previously written was wrong. I've pulled the old post so as not to perpetuate misinformation.

No longer will images be presented in the chronological order in which they’re posted. Instead, you will see the images the Instagram algorithm selects for you in [...]

Story
Introduction
Hi! I'm a mid-life  woman with a high stress professional job that I sometimes love; I'm a bookworm who doesn't have enough time to read; I lean left politically; I'm a liberal Christian (yep, we exist), and an insomniac. My newest passion is family history. I love researching my ancestors and finding out their stories; I'm not only collecting names. I've also started a blog to keep my family informed of my research, help me analyze my research,  make new friends, and possibly find new cousins. ; ) Climbing My Family Tree - http://jahcmft.blogspot.com/.  Stop in and say hi! And I'm on Twitter at https://twitter.com/JoAllisonHenn
