To add your comment, just read down to the bottom of a single day's post, then click on "No Comments" or (# number of) comments. I'll check daily to see if there are comments (usually more often) and then publish them to the blog. Sorry, I can't post comments if you are "anonymous" but there's an easy solution. Just sign up for a blog, then you'll have a recognized name (of your choice) and can make comments and join the fun! (It is free after all, and maybe you've been just waiting to be a blogger!)

Ancestors' Birthdays 1.30 to 2.1.14

Happy birthday great grandmother, Eugenia Almeta Booth Miller b. 1.30.1873, d. 1.1.1936.  I've already blogged a bunch about I won't spend more time today, other than honoring the woman who mostly raised my mother and I was named after (middle name only). HERE and Here.

Happy birthday on Feb 1 to Lucy Elizabeth Parsons Pulsifer Granger, born on that day in 1807, as well as Sarah Jones Traylor, in 1780.   Let's see whether or not I have given them all a blog post, which I'll edit into the blog as "Here" every here and yon.

Lucy Pulsifer Granger is mentioned in her Pulsifer family posts Here, or her husband George Tyler Granger's blog HERE .  My relationship to her?  My paternal grandmother's mother's mother's mother.  I always have to look at the tree to follow the relationship.  My father's mother's (Ada Phillips Swasey Rogers), mother's (Zulieka Granger Phillips Swasey) mother's (Mary Hull Granger Phllips), mother was Lucy Pulsifer Granger.

I should do a complete post on  Lucy Granger soon, a long lived woman ancestor.

Sarah Jones Traylor was born Feb 1, 1780.  OK, again I need to look on the Ancestry site to find her.  At least they make searches easy. She is mentioned in her mother's post HERE. So going up from my father's father this time, his mother's (Elizabeth Bettie Bass Rogers) mother's (Mary Ann E Powell) mother's (Nancy Jones Traylor Powell) mother was Sarah Jones Traylor. . 

I'm also aware how hard it is to find the women by their maiden names, so even though Ancestry wants everyone listed that way, I needed those married names also. After all, they were Mrs. someone most of their lives.

How wonderful, to know of all these ancestors! Wonderful.

And wonderful for your children, to have had this work done for them.

I often wonder if anyone will notice.
