We would all be Saints if it weren't for other people.
Author - Mother Angelica

I adore Mother Angelica and pray the rosary with her when I can. Her sense of humor is kin to mine as is her brutal honesty and keen perception. All of which can sometimes get one into the most precarious situations. ;)

In 1998 I was an empty nester, freely going about and enjoying my space. Well I should have known all that bliss and quiet would change...we call it the Clark Griswald Luck. My wonderful husband of 30 yrs took us on an extended holiday where the Guiness runs abundant. How delighted, how thrilled, how OMG shocked were we when it became necessary to rebuild the nest! It keeps us young at heart and we love every single nano second of our sweetest treasure, our most precious blessing.

In the meantime, we also became Granpa and MeMe!

Raines (Rains)

I am researching the George families in the White Stone, lower Northern Neck area, and was wondering if you have any info of a Corafene (Cora, Corah) Rains born around 1879 and possibly at one time married to a James Harrison George? I have come across this a few times in my search. I do know he married my grandmother, Margaret Ann Abbott who was much younger. I believe he may have been married to this Raines for a few years but no one in my family seems to know anything about this only what I find in census and other trees. (anyone who may have known has passed away)

If you can put me on the right tract I would appreciate it.

James Harrison George is my grandfather.

George Washington Moon
Hi Deborah.
I've been researching the Moon branch of my family tree and came across the wonderful bio for George Washington Moon (88518360). I'm pretty sure he is the brother of my g3 grandfather, Robert C Moon. I'd like to ask permission to use your bio, with credit, in my Ancestry family tree.
Any other tidbits of Moon family history would be most appreciated.
Thank you. Sarah

Helen :)
I was NOT offended in the least, I could see the investment you have in her because of that wonderful picture of her , and she is not my relative. No worries.

My whole family except me was born in that area of New York, I found Miss Helen while I was looking for my family.

What a great photo of her..

would you like to copy the obit and add her cemetery to yours ? When a burial is place is unknown it's easy to dupe them , so sorry.

let me know... if you at least add the cemetery then someone like me won't do that again hahah

I live in the desert so I can't send any leaves still in the 90's hear daily.

thanks Maggie

RE: Further down the rabbit hole..
I think that's a very wise idea.

I tried looking in the whole paper around those days but didn't find anything. MLK had just been assassinated and was basically dominating the media "and rightfully so".

Beyond that- I know what it means to have way too much information on the memory of lost loved ones- and would suggest that in these circumstance- less is more.

My best to you and yours. Let me know if I can ever be of further assistance.

Further down the rabbit hole...
Well, I'm not sure how far down the rabbit hole you want to go on this one...

However, you can reach out to the Lynchburg professional standards division contact center at 434-455-6067 to request a police report if it is available.

I went downtown to ask about this and that they will only release the information to family members if anybody.

Fair warning, if they do release the records they're probably going to be very graphic. That may not be what you want to do, but it's an option.

What I can get fairly easily is property records of where he may have lived. But those are typically very boring and not very interesting.

Just let me know. I'll be happy to be your pair of legs in the area.
