    A truly wonderful find. The qualities of honesty and industry–good character– live on to be the essence of your ancestor. The language used to lessen people of color in those days reflects more poorly on the thinking of the writer, even though he was a product of his era. I’m sure you’re proud of the more important legacy your great great grandfather left. Beautiful pictures in your photo album!

    Linda, THANK YOU, so much for the wonderful compliment about my family photos and for responding to my great-great-grandfather’s obituary. I cannot tell you how excited I was to locate his obituary online; then to learn he was a wonderful man and a favorite in his community, definitely brought a smile to my face. Again, thank you for stopping by!

    Great find! And what a great effort from the TXGenWeb group. It was dedication like this from others that inspired me to get involved with the project too (i volunteer for TN, NC & FL).

Oh YES!, the TXGenWeb has been very helpful in my research, so much so that I will be getting in touch with them this summer to lend a helping hand too. So KUDOS to you for your contribution to the TN, NC, & FL projects . . . and . . . for having an excellent blog site that I visit often!

    Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
