Refusing to say I failed...

#37 of 52... Tishie Stapler
One of my great grandmothers is named Tishie Stapler.  I was kind of named after her.  I guess you could say that her name inspired my middle name.  My name is Sarah Latisha.  Mama said that she thought of Sarah Tishie but didn't want to be accused of namin...

#34 of 52...James Christopher Allen...
One of my Great Great Grandfathers was James Christopher Allen.  That's a lot of common names strung together there.  Nice, strong names; but common.  I believe I have his information correct however. James Christopher Allen was born 11 April 1859 in Spaldi...
