My family's farm is within 10 minutes of my 16 DAR/SAR grt grdpas' graves.
This farm was one my grt grdpa received for his Rev war service.
I love reclaiming the names of our grandmas, connecting babies to their parents and telling the stories of the Veterans, the lost and the forgotten.
I have been doing family research for 40 years.
