Family research has interested me since I was in grade school and we had to make a little family tree for ourselves. Photos have always been one of my favorite parts of the puzzle-either photos of people or their graves or places they lived. Our main family lines are Blanford, Booth, Buss, Calhoun, Castle, Champlin, Cheeseman, Chesebrough, Cochran, Danner, Denison, Epler, Ferguson, Hrobsky, McDowell, Messenger, Miller, Noyes, Painter, Parsons, Riffel, Robidoux, Schumann, Silgman, Smith, Stanton, Stewart, Tracy, and Viets.
"Linger awhile and walk with me into the shadowy mist that was yesterday.
Stroll across the faded pages of history and from our hardships learn the ways of a better life.
Pass me not for I am the spirit of your ancestors. In your veins flow my blood and the blood of my fathers.
Linger awhile, if only for a moment and through your thoughts I will know I am remembered."
