Sometimes it’s funny how things go. I woke up this morning thinking about writing an On This Day, blog post.
I like to occasionally pick a random day and find out who in our family was born, married or died on a particular date.
As I was sitting at my desk I received a text message about a new family member. A much awaited and already loved first grandbaby for both sides of this family. This is my sister-in-law’s sisters family.
Since all are living I won’t reveal full names here. But BIG Congratulations to Hilary & Garrett, Debbie & Dan and Denise & Mark.
Now let’s see who else in our tree has a birthday on February 4th?
Rebecca DOWNER – 1738 in Sunderland, Colonial Massachusetts – distant relation – my paternal step 3rd great grandfather’s wife’s grandmother
Mary DOTEN – 1745 in Plymouth, Colonial Massachusetts – my paternal 5th great grandaunt
Charles WALLACE – 1826 in Westmoreland Co., Pennsylvania – my husband’s paternal 2nd great grandaunt’s husband
Mary LEONARD – 1842 in Ohio – my paternal grandaunt’s husband’s mother
Walter W. DAVY – 1844 in Tiverton, Devon, England – husband of my maternal 1st cousin 3 times removed
Ettie L. SMITH – 1867 in St. Lawrence Co., New York – my husband’s paternal 1st cousin twice removed
Mary G. HARBOLD – 1879 in Dillsburg, York, Pennsylvania – distant relation – my father’s first wife’s husband’s mother
Nettie M. DILLON – 1909 in South Point, Lawrence, Ohio - wife of my maternal 3rd cousin twice removed
Living KOVACINSKI – born in Michigan – my paternal 2nd cousin twice removed
And last but not least our newest family member – baby girl Shafer.
I always like to post photos of those I mention, if I have them.
