  • In March my son was in the ICU with severe DKA. Prior to that he never had a juvenile diabetic diagnosis. Our lives flipped upside down overnight. We had to make many adjustments, learn to live with constant changes and are getting used to the consistent inconsistency.
  • It was with a lot of sadness that my desire to concentrate on genealogy completely dissipated. I greatly apologize for just "disappearing", not replying to emails and messages. I don't plan to be gone forever, genealogy was my passion, working on profiles and helping others with their research was very important to me and I hope to slowly get back to it.

Born in North Carolina. The next 4-5 years spent with an Army Dad, going from North Carolina to Alabama to Germany to Washington to Georgia and finally to Virginia, where I stayed from the age of 6 to 21. Then I returned to North Carolina.

I have a branch of family that was part of the movement of Moravians down the Great Wagon Road into North Carolina. I love visiting their graves and seeing the headstones written in German.
