Since today, September 11th has become a date that all of us currently old enough, will always remember. I thought I would look at family statistics and see what events in my family took place on this date.
I wanted to write something to honor this date.
WHICH MEMBERS IN OUR FAMILY WERE BORN, GOT MARRIED, DIED OR HAD SOME OTHER EVENT OCCUR ON THIS DATE?
We had 6 births on this date – the earliest one in 1773 – Horace Flower, my 2nd great grandaunt’s husband’s grandfather.
There were 8 marriages on this date – the earliest on in 1828 – Rachel Hudson married William Dysard. Rachel is my 4th great grandaunt.
There were 4 deaths on this date – the earliest one in 1777 – Mary Leavitt, my husband’s 6th great granduncle’s wife’s daughter.
There were 4 other events that occurred on this date. The earliest one being the proving of the will of Anthony Bowen, my 5th great grandfather AND my DAR Patriot. His will was proved in 1787.
Three of the oldest events on this list occurred in the 18th century.
There are two events in our family that occurred the day before and the day after September 11th. The birth of our grandson and the birth of my stepson.
Are there dates in your family that have occurred on memorable dates in history, such as December 7th or November 22nd, to name a couple?
