My paternal grandmother inspired me to research our family trees.
Growing up she told the story of a steamboat captain on the mississippi river that brought his family to Texas via wagon in 1872 from Missouri. That was my grandfather's great-grandfather Captain Samuel Atchison. Since the inception of my research, I have met so many amazing Atchison relatives.
My goal is to some day have all information verified and have created the family tree linking children to their parents and siblings via Find-A-Grave.
In the process of memorializing those that have come before me, I hope to help others in their search.
