“It’s a small, small world”

Comment #1

John Hufford (1814-1886) took William Root into his home prior to 1880 Federal Census. William’s parents died a few years earlier and the children (William’s siblings) scattered throughout the community. William is listed as a “boarder” with John, and his sister Frances is a “boarder” at the next-door property. ~~ I suspect the children are in the home(s) of extended family but I have not unraveled all the relationships.

“It’s a small world after all”  is a tune we hum after a visit to a ride at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. My “small world” experience is the fact that I documented (and published) LaVerne Evergreen Cemetery Tombstone Inscriptions (1989) and I read the tombstones for William E. & Anna Blickenstaff Root. Very likely my grandparents (David & Lydia Frantz) were friends with William & Anna.

Confession: I’m still documenting the extended family of earlier mentioned “cousin” who, undoubtedly, was an embarrassment to his “straight-laced” Bible-believing, Christ-centered, family members.
