First cousin Paul took us (Sue, Doodle and I) to see the graves of our great, great, great grandmother Sarah, a full blood Native American and her husband..seven graves in all..beside an old wagon road..Huge Cedar tree had been planted there among the pines and oaks. Several flowering bushes were blooming planted by relatives before us..great time!

Annbramwell I find our past history fascinating, my mum has traced her ancestors back to 1735 up in the Orkney Isles, North of Scotland... it's good to know where you come from, it gives you a sense of belonging...
