You Know It's an Addiction When ...
DH and I bought a piece of property this week. Well, we closed on it anyway. It's way out in Macon county. Well, it's about an hour away. This is for younger daughter and her man. Our agent sent us some  papers - warranty deeds - for past owners. Going back...

Thoughts for the Day -- What's in a Nickname?
I was watching the President of the United States conferring the Medal of Honor on two late World War I soldiers. Talk about waiting for a long time for the honor. In it, POTUS referred to Henry Johnson as Frank. What the heck? I would expect him to be refe...

It Was Supposed to be ....
A vacation. Time away from home to enjoy family in New York state. Maybe a little research on the way home in Lexington, Kentucky. What it turned out to be: Negotiation of purchase of property in the car on the the first day. I seriously don't remember the ...

What Season Is It, Anyway?
The long winter here in mid Tennessee finally gave way to a pleasant spring. Sixty and seventy degree days in March sure feel good. The problem is, it did not last. It started to rain and the temps dipped back into the forties with night time lows in the *s...

I'm Being Teased!
I found this reference last week, and it is driving me kind of crazy. Why? Because my Bowman's lived in Lexington, Missouri in this time frame. It's the four generation thing. In my direct line, I can only account for three generations. However, it's possib...

The Rest of the Story ...
A long time ago I blogged about the headstone of my great-great Grandmother, Sarah Ann Kirtley Percival Webb, here . Mostly, I talked about the difficulty in finding the stone we walked past many times. All of us. What I didn't say was that on that first vi...

This Land is Your Land, This Land is MY Land!
I promise I am not attaching a sound file of me singing. There are laws about that! DH and I drove out to the lot that we put an offer on while on vacation. Because we got a call from the survey company. We looked at the stakes and the neighbor on one side ...

**
I am very fortunate. I have to go back to 1863 to find an ancestor who gave all for his family and country. Although both grandfathers fought in World War I, and my dad in World War II, they came home. So this is for all the heroes of our Country's wars - t...

After Easter
OMG! I have finally recovered from Easter. It gets crazy when the guest room and couch fill up with my kids et al. So glad older daughter lives nearby and not far, far away! This year, the weather cooperated slightly and we were able to cook on the grill - ...

Blessing or Curse?
I recently found a Union Provost Marshal's file on my great-great-great grandfather, Edwin H. Carter. If I had any doubts after reading the first deposition, the second sealed the deal that it was my g-g-g grandfather by  the name of his step-daughter, Carr...

Thriller Thursday? Or What Happened to the Rest?
Don't get me wrong, I am happy to have the obituaries from the Michigan Obituaries, 1820-2006 on Family Search. It has helped me tremendously.  It has also confused me. For example,  the following obituary for Richard C. Percival, an extremely distant relat...
