    Today I was presented the "Ancestors Approved" award by Dionne Ford of the Finding Josephine Blog. As a recipient of this award I’m supposed to list ten things I have learned about any of my ancestors that has surprised, humbled, or enlightened me and pass along the award to ten other bloggers who I feel are doing their ancestors proud.

    I have chosen to present you with the award. You can pick up the picture of the award on my blog post at

    Thanks for sharing your ancestor stories!

  4. What a beautiful portrait! I was going to ask if you know more about her and then I noticed that you included links to other posts. I'll come back and read them another time. It will be interesting to learn more about your lovely gggrandmother.
