Where Do I Begin??
I was born in Jefferson Co. New York, but now I realize that was not my beginning. I became interested in Genealogy as a teenager. I would listen to all the older family members as they would talk of their youth. I found this to be so fascinating I could sit for hours and listen. My grandmother Vincent for one then Flora King, Helen Holliday, & Nancy Dixon just to name a few others.
As I grew up and married, had children of my own there was little time for listening to any stories but the little one's that they told.
Then one day I found that they also had grown up and I was the one telling stories. And I thought they will never remember all that I can tell them. So I began to gather in all that I could and write it down so in time it would not be lost or forgotten.
I thought at first this won't take long. I will be able to complete this soon enough.
I have now found after years of search and research that my work with genealogy will never be completed. There will always be a mystery person waiting somewhere to be found and added to my growing tree now filled with lots of golden leaves. I can't think of anything that has caught my interest as much as finding all the people who helped make me who I am today. And finding a LOVE for people I can only get to know Thu a picture, a letter, a diary entry or even an obit. Once you start to search you can never stop.
Charles Victor Halliday and his bride Isabelle Mae Bamford. They were married Feburary 12, 1884.

APRIL 1, 2016...A few weeks ago Rootsweb's server was down,
when they got it up and running again all the work
I had put in from July of 2015 to now was lost.
I will try to rework what I can.
APRIL 3, 2016...Added a new link under My favorite web sites on old Mansions & houses in
the Northern NY area. Found some I have lived in.
Some my ancestors have.
MAY 14, 2016....Added another poem written by Neil Thompson. Will try to start where I last left off on my mothers diaries. With a great grandbaby of age 1 it is hard to get as much done as in the past. Katie will have her second boy in a few weeks that will be two little one's for me to watch when she is working. But she works nights & they will be asleep some of the time, just think I am helping my genealogy grow..
Sept. 12, 2016...Just added another poem written by Neil Thompson. About 9-11...I have not been able to add anything for over a month, Rootsweb was having problems again and I was not able to log into it. I also help my grand daughter Katie with her little ones Zaheer and Zaydeen, both boys are so sweet but need a lot of care. She works nights. Zaheer is almost 15 months and Zaydeen is almost three months. Will have to add some pictures of them.
October 28, 2016....I have been working on my mothers diaries. I finished the one for 1970 this last week and I have only Nov and Dec of the 1973 one to finish. Will get that one finished tomorrow. I have been skipping around adding the ones that are getting hard to read , either written in pencil and fading or an ink that is bleeding through the pages, done first.
October 30, 2016...Just finished mom's 1973 diary. Using the dragon speech program makes it go so much faster. I only wish I could catch all the mistakes. So if you read them and something sounds weird it may be a mistake I didn't catch. Starting on the 1959 0ne. Hope to one day get them all on here. She was a very interesting writer most years. November 8, 2016...I have up to April, 1959 of mom's diaries added to the site. Using the dragon is faster but makes a lot mistakes. So if you read her diaries for those years and you come across something that sounds strange I may have let something slip by me , let me know & I will check it out.

Why have a Moye Reunion 2013
Several years ago Donald Moye, a grandson of James Henry Moye, son of Richard and Lucinda, held Moye Reunions in Georgia and Florida . Due to health issues, the reunions stopped.
Some of Richard and Lucindas children lived in or around the De Soto and Hardee Counties of Florida ; a lot are buried in the area, as well as Lucinda. Therefore, what better place to kick-off our family reunion than Ona , Florida ?
Randall, Ronnie, and Mark Moye graciously offered their Moye Barn for 2013 Moye Family Reunion. Randall, Ronnie, and Mark Moye are connected through George and Amelia Bratcher Moye. George Moye son of Richard and Lucinda

The Moye Motto for our Reunion Arrive as a Stranger Leave as FamilyLooking forward to receiving other addresses. I will need your count of how many before Feb 01.
I guess this also could be called my wish list. I have stories and pictures of Marietta Holley who was a famous author from Jefferson Co. and my sister has some of the buttons from a dress of hers that a niece of hers gave my mother once. I would like to add a section on famous people and noted things from Jefferson Co. My family at one time were caretakers in the Brown Mansion in Brownville, my aunts first husband was a Fillmore and a descendant of President Fillmore. At one time she owned a Tyler coverlet which was donated to a museum.I have tons of old pictures,diaries,poems,Wills to name a few things to add. If I could make one wish it would be for someone to help with the transcribing of some of these things it does take a lot of time.If you have anything to add let me know and I will add it.
