I've moved!

Well I've finally done it......I've moved this blog to the backup site. I've thought about it for a long time even ask you, my loving readers, opinions and now I have decided to act on the thought.

With the new year comes a new blog address and a new blog look. If you want to check out the new digs and start following me over there, I welcome you. The new address is:

I will still leave this site up, but I will not add any more content to it.

Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please check out the new site ;)

Happy Birthday Minnie!

My paternal grandmother, Minnie Frances Shofner, was born on this date in 1915 in Allendale, Green County, Kentucky. SOOO thanks to my public school education I know she would have been 100 years old today.

Mystery Monday - Eliza and possible Eliza

Ok I know I've asked you my dear readers to give opinions on family pictures the last couple of blog postings, but I really do value your thoughts and ideas. So here's another chance for you all to give me your 2 cents. I have a wonderful picture of a young woman only recently found in family pictures. Of course there is no label or pencil marking(s) stating or hinting at her identity.

Here's what I DO know:
  1. She's pretty
  2. The picture is on metal probably tin
  3. Her earrings, necklace and lace are painted on or enhanced
  4. It was found with my maternal aunt's family pictures - that narrows down the possibilities
Ok here is where your 2 cents come in......

The picture on the left is the newly found picture. The one on the right is a known picture of my great-great grandmother, Eliza Ann (Scott) DeSpain. So I put them side by side so you can see any similarities or differences they may have:

The longer I look at them the more I think they look alike. I will refrain from stating my opinion of their similarities so see what you all come up with.

As always thank you all so much for taking the time to read and comment on this blog of mine.

Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please come back again ;)

Veteran's Day - One mother's thoughts on having a son at war

Wishing everyone a happy Veteran's day. I found this clipping that my maternal grandmother, Gussie (DeSpain) Munday had posted in the newspaper. It is about how she (and probably the family) felt about her son, William L Munday, being in Germany and the war.

Mystery Monday - Possible Simon spotting

I have a mystery that needs solving and I hope you all can help with it. Are these two men the same person?

The two men on the right are the same person, he is my paternal great-grandfather, Simon P Tharp. The man on the left is found in a picture from a circa 1911 Road Construction I have recently come across. I will hold my thoughts until I get some feedback from some of you.

What do you all think? 

The two men on the right are my great-grandfather, Simon P Tharp.
The man on the left is the suspected Simon.

Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please come back again ;)
