    Research Results: 1-?

     

    Day One was Most Successful: A Lovely Pension file for Great-Great-Uncle Isaac Winsor. Oh, thank you Collateral Relatives. More to come on this one which included original Marrriaige Certificates, Divorce Decrees (yes, plural), and Guardianship papers. It was full of gems.

    Day Two, not so much. Samuel Chamblin (who married our Mercy Winsor) "Rejected" after enlisting and never returning to Muster Roll Call. And multiple "pink slips" for records not found. Bummer.

    Oh well. Gives me something to do next.

    I've always thought if I could just get there, amazing things would happen. And they have for you!

    I am so pleased for you and your family history.
