Genealogist/Family Historian with a strong interest in the Revolutionary War and Colonial America. Also love archeology, early American sampler work and old cemeteries!

Goal is to one day compile all my information into a book w/ significant bios on each ancestor, along with timelines of historical events in their lives.

Family names I am researching: Blackford, Little, Fitz Randolph, Dunn, Drake, Stelle, Runyon, Martin, Bonham, Beebe, Wansor, Stiles, Mount, Hayes, Hine, Hull, Holmes and Hoyt.

"Dear Ancestor,
Your tombstone stands among the rest neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out on polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care, it is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist - you died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you, in flesh, in blood, in bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot and come to visit you."
