To the Heards, our Great "Parents" of all generations, aunts, uncles, and cousins out there... When I was a small boy not so many years ago really, I didn't like my name so much.... I wanted to be named "Johnny", no last name just "Johnny", see I grew up when it was cool to have heroes and your sneakers, mine were PF Flyers, helped you "run faster and jump higher", and I had a friend named "Johnny" who was a few years older than me and he was my hero. He was so cool! Aunt Jane Heard Askew from Atlanta, GA , a historian in the family, heard about this cool guy that I looked up too and wanting to change my name to one name "Johnny". Well, Aunt Jane didn't want to hear that, and being a school teacher too she had access to many genealogy tools and she was able to send the history of the Heard's of GA to my mom. My mom, LaTrisia Kinney Heard, used to tell me the stories of what Aunt Jane would uncover about Stephen and his brothers as soldiers during the French and Indian war, meeting George Washington, the Revolutionary war, the loss of family by the Tories, the triumphs too and of Mammy Kate and how she saved Stephen from the Tories. How quickly a young boy's heart changed for good about his name sake. I am grown now, married and have 3 children (2 girls, Kaycie and Shannon and 1 boy named Stephen Allan Kinney Heard) that I love so much. Today, I am so very proud to say that I keep the name "Heard" very close to my heart. May you always walk in sunshine.May you never want for more.May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door. Amen….. ...sgh
