I’m not adding individuals to my database aiming for impressive numbers. I involve myself in searching—and documenting—so I don’t think about being lonely, tired, sleepy, and hungry, I sit too long and my derriere and my legs hurt!! ~~ Emotionally, the holiday season is my worst time of the year. ~~ A bit of history: I was married on this day sixty-nine years ago.
Did I hear you correctly? “Say it isn’t so?”
Yes, Lorraine is related to the Macy family through all her Coffin family ancestors on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. Yes, Lorraine has visited the store in New York City. ~~ I’m thankful for a loving Heavenly Father (God) who loves me so much He trusted me with an awesome ancestry–and the talent and desire to accurately document the individuals in my Ancestry.com database. (I’ve visited Nantucket Island twice.)
People tell me I watch too much TV. Actually, I listen to TV while I’m searching and/or documenting information on Ancestry.com. “The media” has gotten vicious in their description of unvaccinated individuals. It’s a criminal offense. I did not want to mingle with the RV Park residents for their sake, and mine. Due to the Coronavirus, we have not enjoyed festivities in the Clubhouse. This was our first… and I stayed away. A neighbor brought this meal.
This morning (rather than take a nap), I continued my search for Frederick Lynn Gish. Among other bits of interesting information, I “stumbled” on this sixth cousin, one-time removed. This one is especially interesting because she married a man fifteen years her senior and identified as “Greek Orthodox.” ~~~ Below are ancestor charts for Gail’s parents who may not have known they had a common ancestor. (Leave it to “detective Lorraine” to discover this information.) Gail is my sixth cousin, one time removed, and each of her parents are my sixth cousin.
I couldn’t tear myself away from the computer. I had a tiger by the tail and I couldn’t let go. I suspect the marriage can be called a “cousin marriage” but I could not location Fred’s parents. All day devoted to the research of the Gish family and their immediate collateral lines.
