Why do I enjoy genealogy so much??? The Credit goes to God who started Genealogy and His "special memory keepers" - my sweet Grandma Madge GRAVES Widdifield , my sweet Grandma Hazel COFFMAN Brown, and the Best GREAT Grandma EVER!! - Rosa FALES Widdifield!! They kept such diligent records and photos of which they gave to me for safekeeping. I was blessed to have the "Family Historian Gene" and so goes the family. When I was a junior in high school, I had 3 Great Grandparents alive - something I thought was so normal, but soon realized it was really rare. My most enjoyable part of genealogy is Seeing and Reading what our grandparents and ancestors are like, so that is why I add the Photos & Stories that they gave me and I have for EVERYONE's enjoyment - after all, That is what God teaches and Families Are For: To Love One Another!
I am the oldest left in my family now with my Mom, Dad, and middle sister waiting in Heaven. I do have a brother and sister alive as well as my husband of 51 years and my children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Oops, I can't forget our spoiled Sheltie - Kody, he is such a cutie. I am a Proud Mama of 5 children and thoroughly enjoyed being able to stay at home and raise them. That was the most important part of my life. My husband and I devote a lot of time doing charity work at church and working on their security team.
I am the broken hearted Grandma to a 10 year old wonderful Grandson, Blake Michael Dickus 1996-2006 who was brutally murdered with his Step-Mom, Chynna. He was my daughter's ONLY child and Love of her life. It is an UNsolved Double Homicide and you can find it on the internet by searching his name. I found Findagrave about a year after Blake was killed, that helped me get through some really rough days. It will be TEN LONG YEARS on July 24 this year that they have NOT found who murdered these two beautiful, loving people. I always welcome a silent prayer from anyone for the perpetrator/s to be caught. (The new show Crime Watch Daily interviewed my daughter and ex-son in law for TV. You can also find the interview on their website)
May God richly bless everyone who is reading this. Hug your family tight and value their wonderful lives.

I was just looking at the Death Record for Mary Widdifield that lists her as a married woman. On that same page is the death record for Ann Orton a married woman and both are reported by a Susan Widdifield of Uxbridge. Do you happen to have any info or profiles for these last 2 people? If Mary is married, did she marry another Widdifield as I show her being the daughter of Mark Widdifield and Susannah Hoagland Widdifield? Thanks for all of your research!

Thank you for all the hard work you have put into the Vaught Family History. I appreciate all your notices for merging of the duplicates that I must have created. Don't know why I duplicated because there was no notice of a "match" when I submitted them. So sorry for that! Anyway, thank you again for all your hard work. When I retire I'm hoping to spend more time with the ancestors doing my most favorite hobby. :) Please feel free to contact me here on Wiki or email. Regards, Carol

If you need any help with the learning curve or would like assistance or TL (trusted list) access on any of our shared ancestors let me know. I don't have to tell you to beware... genealogy is so addictive and sourcing is monumental. According to the WT relationship finder, Carole Anne and David are 7th cousins.
