Time is an odd thing: Some things feel close and remote at the same time.
Mary Conkling, daughter of Lion Gardiner and our 9th and 10th great-grandmother, passed away this week 293 years ago.
This was one of the little genealogical surprises that you stumble upon every now and then in your researches.
Relief Howe Everton was our 4th and 5th great-grandmother in the Denney line.
Our 15th and 16th Great-Grandmother Harris, nee Jernegan, lived in 15th century England during the War of the Roses.
So many of our family lines go back to the early days of European settlement in the New World.
This week 146 years ago, our 4th and 5th grandfather on the Denney side passed away.
Ironically, the Long line is one of the shorter ones in our tree.
Our 2nd and 3rd great-grandfather George Mulford, who passed away today 95 years ago, lived close to the Ohio River, on the WV side.
Between 1700 and 1900, one date shows up six times in our direct family lines.
