Hi, I even go one a bit better, I found people the whole family forgot
about. I had pictures of these people holding me as a baby, but no one knew who
they were. I was beginning to think I was found on a door step, or mom got
around more then I thought.
As a child, I always had a special connection to my great grandmother, I was
the only one in the family named after her. Then when I had my daughter, I
named her after my grandmother and my great grandmother. She was the only one.
Well in one of the pics I found it my first Easter with a cousin with the
same name. And all I kept saying is this other girl in the pic is way to
young to be great grandmom.
It took a lot of digging through old court records to find this out. Then
when I told mom my new discovery, she says oh I knew that. This is why I don't
bother to tell her anything else.
Now if only I can find my long lost cousin Cecelia Townsend, from Mass, my
work would be done.
