Bio and Links
I love genealogy and working on my family history to know who I am and what kind of people I descend from. It has been an amazing journey to say the least. The amount of history in my direct lines on both sides is profound and had a huge impact on America and my family. From the founding of the American Colonies to the Revolutionary War onto the Civil War to a conductor on the Underground Railroad as far as the east is from the west my lines have spanned. From George Washington to Abraham Lincoln and many in between my ancestors have graced the presence of many influential individuals and been a part of history from the first Governor of Massachusetts to surveying the Cheat River area to marching to the sea with Sherman and on detail to guard a President of the United States to being ambushed by a southern sympathizer and left to die. My family's legacy is one that I am proud of and I do this in honor of them.

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them?
Or don't you really know?
Strange discoveries are sometimes made,
In climbing the family tree.
Occasionally one is found in line,
Who shocks his progeny.
If you could see your ancestors,
All standing in a row,
Perhaps there might be one or two,
You wouldn't care to know.
Now turn the question right about,
And take another view.
When you shall meet your ancestors,
Will they be proud of you?
