Hi Ann. I am amazed at your list of grandfathers in the Revolution. I have one. David Rowell. Are you a member of the DAR? You should be. I joined a while back and I do enjoy our local chapter meetings and activities.

Thank you for your kind words about Boone. He was a handful, but such a sweet boy and we miss him. Hope you are enjoying your summer.

Ann, I am so sorry to be this late. Thank you for being a good memory keeper for the history of your family. I am thankful for them. I wish my family had kept better stories of our earlier ancestors. My parents, aunts, and uncles are all gone....and we know very little ..other than things mommy told us growing up. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

Hi Ann! Oh, it's wonderful to know someone who really cares about their heritage! I have done quite a bit of research on mine and am the only one in my family who seems to care. My hubby has a boat load of info on his family. His great great grandfather was the mayor of Houston, Tx during the Civil War, so his roots run deep there. Thank you for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Where's home for you? I think I've been to that cemetery? It looks so familiar. Hoping, even though this is not a current blog post, you'll be back to visit and see my comment.
