Family History Writing Challenge Day 5
Fountain Square Cincinnati !876 After Michael and Catherine got married in 1887, they continued to reside at 57 Mill Street. Michael's mother Mary lived there as well, perhaps in the same apartment, as did Catherine's father Edward. Unfortunately, Catherine...

Family History Writing Challenge Day 3
When Michael arrived in Cincinnati in March of 1879, he came to a city with a population of around 255,000 people. How astounding and overwhelming that must have been to someone coming from a town of 4,600 residents! He could not read or write, so perhaps h...

Mammas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Have Skin Cancer
When I was little, we played outside all day. Like many kids, we only had to be home when the street lights came on as the sun set. There was no such thing as sunblock and no one wore hats, so sunburns were a likely, if unwelcome, consequence of playing fou...

So, I Didn't Win the Lottery
Power Ball For the past two weeks I have done something that I've never done before in my life - I purchased a couple of lottery tickets. The siren's call of first $800 million and then $1.4 billion was just too hard to resist. I had no thoughts of winning,...

Family History Writing Challenge Day 4
Michael Crusham Michael Crusham did more than marry the girl next door - he married the girl who lived at the same address as him! The Colgan family had long lived on Mill Street, mostly at the building numbered 57. Michael and his mother also lived at 57 M...

Family History Writing Challenge Day 2
The Irish Potato Famine occurred long before Michael Crusham was born. Begining in 1845 and lasting a disastrous six years, it killed over a million men, women and children. The famine eliminated the primary food source for peasants in the country, leaving ...

A Not So Happy New Year
For many in the St. Louis area, 2015 went out on a wet note. A very wet note, as more than eight inches of rain fell over a three day period. Nearby rivers overflowed their banks, and three interstates along with numerous highways were closed because they w...

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Couples Negril, where I surprised him with a vow renewal ceremony. Never before or since have we stayed at a resort where all the employees go out of their way to make sure that you are having an enjoyable experience. Love Jamaica, love Couples and can't wait for our return visit in a couple of months to commemorate our 35th anniversary!
