WHEN I BEGAN MY GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH I WAS UNAWARE JUST HOW DEEP MY ROOTS WERE IN THE TEXAS SOIL...OR FOR THAT MATTER HOW DEEP MY ROOTS WERE IN THE HISTORY OF THIS GREAT LAND CALLED AMERICA.
I HADN'T GROWN UP WITH OLD FAMILY STORIES OF..."YOUR GREAT GRANDPA FOUGHT IN THE CIVIL WAR..." OR ANY WAR...NOR WITNESSED ANY HISTORICAL EVENT FOR THAT MATTER! BUT I WAS CURIOUS TO KNOW JUST WHAT MY FAMILY HAD DONE...WHERE THEY HAD COME FROM... AND WHY.
SO HERE ARE THEIR STORIES...THEIR JOURNEYS...THEIR LIVES...WOVEN INTO THAT WONDERFUL TAPESTRY CALLED HISTORY. I HOPE THEIR STORIES WILL ENCOURAGE YOU TO FIND YOUR HISTORY...YOUR HERITAGE...YOUR ROOTS.
