I started studying my BABCOCK family just before my daughter was born many years ago, to give her an idea of her family was & where they came from. I soon got stuck on Sherman BABCOCK b. 1762, in Rhode Island, & now some 34 years later, I now have over 15,000 family members under many different names in many countries all around the world & 4 beautiful grandchildren. It is now for them that I continue my research. The family names: ABERT, BABCOCK, BEDENK, BRAAE-JOHANNESSEN, BURK, CASE, DODGE, GULER, MASON, MCCFARLAND, PURCELL, WILLARD, are among many others I continue to research. |
To those of who grab full cemetery information & then refuse to consider close family transfers, because you did initial work & just want FaG #'s, shame, shame on you & your personal issues & true beliefs. To those who help others out when in times of learning, need, research & make such transfers, I thank you for your work, time & belief. As this is what it is all about.
I welcome any and all comments and corrections.
I truely believe:
"Our greatest treasure is our family, not only the warm circle around the Christmas tree, but all those whose lives gave us life, and those who will carry our love into the future." (Anonymous)
And when it is my time, I will say to all who knew me:
"Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die".
