Bio

I like all things of old. Apparently I am a bit of an iconoclast. The past is very intriguing to me. I wish I was a little more in the present and a lot more focused on the future sometimes! I started asking my grandparents what their parents' and their parents' names were and where they were from a long time ago, but didn't write it down and then all but one of my grandparents passed away. I am so fortunate and blessed to still have my maternal grandma in my life! She is about to be 92! I do wish I had recorded my grandmothers and grandfathers telling me their stories which I loved listening to. What their houses and land looked like and what they had to do growing up. How far they had to walk and how hard they had to work for everything. I guess that sounds a bit cruel of me! But I am now making it my mission to write a book with my family's tree and history. It may not be super in depth, but I want it to cover at least the important aspects. I have always loved old coins, old clothes, genealogy, pictures, period pieces, stories, and memories. But I still love to shop for new things and make new memories and traditions as well! I have some 'Black Dutch' ancestry and am interested in researching and learning more on that subject. I definitely want to drive to where both of my parents are from and see all of my family's old land and houses, the family burial plots, and do some research in those necks of the woods. My family history dates back pretty far in the United States, but I have still hit many road blocks and am working on hunting down more grandparents and locations. Well, I have said enough for now, but … I am also interested in hiking, nature and the outdoors, history, physical fitness, animals, especially cats - I am an unashamed and self declared cat lady (The unashamed ones are not crazy. I only had cat scratch fever once anyway.), gardening and plants, travelling, and of course all of the other things everyone likes - movies, music, food, tv, etc.! I love all kinds of food, but right now sweets are my favorite. Anything chocolate. I am going to start uploading some photos of graves that I took that are not currently on this site as soon as possible. If I write you with a question and you don't mind writing back that would be great. Glad to be on this site! FYI - I am still very new to this! Trying to find my mother's father's side of the family. Adams of Danville, VA, USA. Going further back on my Dad's side of the family in North GA, Western NC, SC, VA, etc. Names I am researching begin with Little, Walker, Patterson, Voyles but reach back into Watkins, Thomas, Hunsucker/Hunsaker, Goble, Chastain, Zirkle, Welti, Farrar or Ferrar, Panter, Odom, and many more.
