Sylvia Benton is the descendant of a Huguenot emigrant.
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.
