grounded

been doing a bit of genealogy the past few months...our family knows most about the "mens" lines, but Im more interested in the women in the family...found our family on both sides of the slavery issue, owners as well as quakers...families always on the frontier as the country expanded...First Virginia (Jamestown) and Philladelphia, then Tennesee and Kentucky, then on to Texas and beyond. I find a lot of strength in looking into their stories. I can't imagine trekking across the country in a covered wagon with 8 children and pregnant with the 9th. As my grandmother would say, I come from strong "stock".
