"It's a pleasure to share one's memories.
Everything remembered is dear,
endearing, touching, precious.
At least the past is safe --
though we didn't know it at the time.
We know it now. Because it's in the past;
because we have survived."

~Susan Sontag~

~A Note from Verbel & George's youngest daughter ~

If I waited until all of the research was complete,
I would never be ready to share what I have, even if I live to be 100.

I have always enjoyed listening to family stories. Whether it was small talk while working in the flower gardens with Mom, snapping green beans with Aunt Rae on the porch or picking strawberries with Uncle Elmore; some of my favorite memories are of the time spent chatting about family history. Porches were the gathering place to congregate and cool off after working all day canning, weeding or harvesting the vegetable gardens. If you caught Uncie or Elmore in the right mood while we were on the porch glider or swing, you could maybe get them to tell a story or two. Sometimes, the conversation would turn to their childhood when we were walking the creek beds saning for minnows and crawdads. It seems that sometimes the little things in every day life can often spark a fond memory of some one who had passed away.

I acquired my love for hiking in the woods due to the many treks made back and forth to the river checking trout lines at Uncle Elmore's, or hiking through the briars and thickets in the woods to catch a fish or two in a deep little pond called Ellico at Uncie's.

I used to listen for hours. Yes. I confess, I was that pesky child, The one always asking questions about parents, siblings, relatives, What they were like as a child ? What was their favorite toy ? What was their most memorable Christmas ? Who was the first person they fell in love with ?

Many times, unfortunately, the answer was simply, "I don't remember ". I do know that my mother found it difficult to talk about her mother, up until her own death she would tear up and say "I just can't talk about it". She missed her mother terribly, I know - now, just how she felt. If I did get any family information, I held it dear and tried to remember by writing it down. I loved hearing about their 'good ole days', listening to how this one and that one were related. Back when 'real 1st cousins' were treated like brothers and sisters. I never knew my grandparents and I often wished I had been born earlier, just to have known them.

Both sides of our family had / has a very private nature. I used to think it was due to ominous reasons, but since have found out, that most of their time was spent just making a living and to speak of those who had passed on was simply too painful. Most of my ancestors from my mother's side owned tracts of land and enjoyed digging in the dirt for pleasure as well as making a living. Many in my family possessed a genuine love for the land and for raising animals, I believe that kind of feeling is passed down through the generations and that's where I get my deep love for music and of nature... Others were entrepreneurs and opened small groceries and there were several who decided to become Lawyers, Judges, Sheriffs and many were politically active and their career involved some type of public service. I do not know why, growing up, we were closer to Mom's side. Being the youngest of 9, most of my grandparents had already passed away by the time I came along. That is why most of the information I have, as of now, is from Mom's side.

I am in my forties now, with limited immediate family and unfortunately I am in the middle of a precarious health situation. I don't know if anything on my site is of interest to you or your family - I do know that everyone deserves to be remembered, even those who "never married", or those who "had no children", please remember those who led quiet lives taking care of their parents and making a simple living. My hope is that you do not get caught up in the collection of 'names' for 'names' sake. That you remember each and every name listed in your family tree - was once a living, breathing person; with best friends and secrets, with beloved pets, with fears and deep feelings, and hopes and dreams for their future, just like us...

I have noted a few stories or family information with that family line. I have also added nicknames using "quotations" or 'apostrophes'. Many in our family were ONLY known by their nicknames and some of my older relatives did not know their given or birth names. I am NOT a professional researcher or family tree consultant, nor did I make this site according to any ones idea of a typical family tree site. For example; I decided to place photos in the middle of my research so you can, "put a face with the name" just because I thought it would be nice. If you have a relative that is getting up in years, take a few minutes and go visit them, call them or write them a letter. Don't wait until they are gone to realize they hold dear so much of your personal history - and chances are - they would love to share it with you.

I also included notes of things that are of interest to me along the way... going back to add this and that as I can. I will NOT share any names of living family members in the actual family tree line or in email without their written permission.

I just started transferring archived information, scans and personal notes onto this site March 9th, 2008.
I will be adding information and activating pages and links frequently -

Make a memory today...
