There are many generations in that photo. My great grandparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. Surnames: Van Gueder, Talbert, Newlon, Birch. Ancestry from Germany and England.
Love the history that formed our families and country. Sometimes I try to visualize how hard their lives had to be. Raising those huge families, combating the disease and illnesses, leaving homelands to put their mark on new world presses me forward to discover the marks they left in our lives.
Dear Ancestors, you are not forgotten! Your names live on in our hearts!!
