Yours truly: spring, 2018.

Absorbed in genealogy research since about the late 1990s. 

What can I say?  It’s fascinating, it’s a fun way to learn history — it makes history come aLiVe, quite frankly — it’s…

(gasp!) addictive!

    My sister is also “hopelessly hooked” and discovered 2 weeks ago that Hans Herr is out 9th great-grandfather. So I guess that means we are somehow related to you, too. I have passed your blog on to her; she is on ancestry.com and I imagine she will contact you. My other sister is planning a road trip from TX to Lancaster County this summer to see where our ancestors lived. Ironically, my sister and I spent our summers at a camp in Lancaster County and always felt “at home” there. And we are delighted to know if a family connection to Andrew Wyeth, bc my mom was an artist and he was one of her favorites! Looking forward to finding out from my sister how we are related to you!

    • Carol:

      I’m just getting back to blogging. What have you learned since you posted the above? I hAve done DNA testing through Ancestry.com, btw, so if your sister or you have also, maybe a relationship has shown?

    Have you ever came across Overton Buckner father if James my great granddaughter?


    • Hi Sandra — I have one Overton BUCKNER in my database WITH, a son James: Overton M. BUCKNER, (Nov. 9, 1812 VA-?), married Elizabeth Mary FULTZ (1812-1875; buried Bethel Cemetery, Carter Co., KY) in 1832; fought in the American Civil War, Union Allegiance, 23rd Kentucky Infantry Regiment. Is he your Overton? Would love to hear back from you as to when he died, where he’s buried, any family photos of him you might have! 🙂
