|Birth: ||1618, England|
Walk with me down pathways,
Some lost and long forgotten,
Where voices not familiar,
Can explain where you have gotten.
The journey is a long one,
Through times long past yet dear,
Take my hand and bear a smile...
WE BEGIN THE GAYDON JOURNEY HERE !!!!!!
ggggggg Granddaddy > Gaydon
Mary M Beadlesin " A Bicentennial History of Eleven Pioneer Families" claims George Gayden arrived in Virginia circa 1638 and was the resident of Charles River County, the name being changed to York County later. She states George Gaydon was sponsored by Richard Melton and cites Greer's "EARLY VIRGINIA IMMIGRANTES"
Children of George Gaydon and unknown spouse were.
Probably more children.
We are the Chosen
My feelings are in each family we are called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make
them live again, To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing
genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, Breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe. We have been called as it were by our genes. Those who have gone
before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do.In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many
graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count.
How many times have I told the ancestors you have a wonderful family, you would be proud of us?
How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say.
It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who I am and why I do the things I do?
It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let
this happen. The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh.
It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish.
How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never
giving in or giving up.
Their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and
keep us a Nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us
That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing each
fact of their existence, Because we are them and they are us. So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family.
It is up to that one called in the next generation, To answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers.
That is why I do my family genealogy, And that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on the bones.
Please leave my dear Grandmother a flower!!!
