I was born in Oklahoma in the heart of the Dust Bowl and during the Great Depression. To survive, we soon moved to Alabama where my parents were share-croppers for about 10 years. I grew up near Oneonta, Alabama - graduated from the University of Alabama and moved to Marietta, Georgia. I was in insurance management/sales for 37 years, retiring in 1994.
I became a prolific world traveler in 1958 and was an active lay missionary for 40 years. I have taught Writing Your Life Story for 19years. I am a writer and an author (A JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY & A JOURNEY OF FAITH), became active in genealogy about 12 years ago and am a member of the SAR. Handicapped from a car accident in 2007, I now do genealogy as a ministry.
