A Change of Pace... Stories of My Family

Most of my friends have heard stories of my family, but I have been following Ancestry and I find some of these fantastic. So I will start sharing. Read what you want, ignore what you don't. They are in no order, but mine.

And a note. You will notice that the connections I felt strongly are not always the closest relative. There is a reason for this.

As families moved to the United States and then to California, not everyone came. I became extremely close, by emotion or proximity, to the family members that lived in California. I spent more time with my Great-Gandmother's Sister Smitty (Effie Rosetta Smith) than almost any of my other relatives bar my parents and one Grandmother. In fact, that Grandmother (Zela) lived for years with Smitty who was her mother-in-law's younger sister.

So California, Southern California in particular, was a destination of choice. Populated by the headstrong, dreamers and fools. My family in a nut-shell.

So let's start with my Great Grandfather in the next post.

What is too much Taylor Swift

 This much ... when the singer is used to send a message about POSSIBLE future problems?
