My Beginnings

 

This website is the result of years of research, started by my sister-in-law in 1973.  Actually, we all thought she was nuts when she kept bugging everyone in the family about our surnames.  She would blurt out stories about so and so and was so enthused about what little tid-bits of information she knew about people who were so long dead, no one had a clue as to whom she was speaking!

 

I listened to the stories and remembered most of the names making mental notes (way, way back in my brain.)   In 1973, I was just starting to raise my own family and did not have time to pursue this hobby.  I was doing well enough to work, continue my education and get by with just a few hours of sleep!  I was too busy trying to find names for the three children I had in three years, much less trying to find names of my ancestors who had been dead for hundreds of years.

 

My sister-in-law continued to work on her favorite hobby.  (She only had one child and must have had more time than I did.)  Needless to say, somewhere down the road, she started being successful with her own direct lines and decided to leave her husbands family to someone from the Hudson-Bone side.  This is where I entered the picture.

 

She proudly handed me several boxes containing organized file folders with outlines in very neat handwriting, old newspapers clippings, photographs, death certificates, and several historical publications.  I must admit, the boxes sat for some time.  I just did not want to dig into them to see what was there.  Eventually, I did and that is really the beginning of the story.

 

What you find on the pages of this website is a compilation of my madness.  It is the beginning of my own demise and probably the one thing I will be most remembered for and not in my lifetime.  However, those who follow this crazy hobby will appreciate it.  My children may never read these pages and no one close to me now has a clue at what madness runs through my brain.

 

I do know there are many others who share this hobby.  The following material would not be possible if it were not for their sickness too.  So, to my sister-in-in law, thank you for starting me on this quest and to the many, many, fellow Coil, Kile and Kyle cousins---THANK YOU for your support.  None of this would have been possible if you were not so willing to share and learn!
