Bio Photo If any of you see your relatives in my memorials, please contact me - I would love to reach out to my ancestry family!

Feel free to share and/or use the family photos.

Let me know if I can help with any information and/or thanks for your assistance as I'm learning this process.


I've been working on our family Trees for a few years now.

I have the Davis Family tree put together by a great Aunt and her cousins in the 70(s)

Our Gibbons/Baker/Warren family tree is short and sweet.


#1 Family(s)
Davis
Campbell

#2
Shelton
Henderson
Wooster

#3 Family(s)
Warren
Gibbons/Gibbens
Baker



The best explanation I've ever found was in a short essay by Della M. Cummings Wright. It was later re-written by her Grand Daughter, Della JoAnn McGinnis Johnson, and even later edited and reworded by Tom Dunn. It is called The Story Tellers.

The Story Tellers

We are the chosen. My feelings are, in each family there is one who seems 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 storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. 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.

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.
