Note N6Sept 2 2006.
I left my husband Dec 2004 after being with him for 10 years I realized that hes just not a happy person and I can not change that fact nor can I live with it. I never had children of my own. I remember telling Melanie when we were in daycare that I didnt want children that there were too many kids that didnt have parents already. I got that from watching the starving children from other countries on tv when I was very young. I have no regrets about that.
Things I love are Photography, Gardening, Design, Cooking and Genealogy.
I believe that there is so much more to life than we will ever know and a saying I fell in love with goes " Common place minds usually condem what is beyond their reach of understanding." I believe in Depok Chopra, Gary Zukav ( seat of the soul is awesome) and Dr Phil.
I am also very impressed with Oprah. She has become the kind of woman that we all shoud aspire to be.
I read Desitarada when I was very young and know in my heart it is the way to be. I know there is something on the other side of this life. Just because you cant see something does not mean it is not there.
As I read stories of past family members I see where I get my traits. My love for law and design comes from the Burton side. My dad use to draw the most unique cartoons
My love for well made furniture comes from the Sprakers on my mom side
I just read what Mildred Pepper wrote of her life and her brother Jesse Edward Pepper injured playing basketball died in his fathers arms. Before he died he looked over in the corner of the room, he had a smile on his face and said 'Mama, Mama!, Oh daddy, Mama is here." When Mildred rushed into the room her father said "Your mother was here but Jesse was the only one who could see her" They are all right on the other side and they are waiting for us there.

Hi Merilee, I think that there is no proof of Richard Peacock, and that he should be converted into the second son of John Peacock? Objections?

Hi Merilee, I have cleaned up Daniel Belden/ Belding's profile and those of his children. I would like your thoughts on my completed effort. I took out a lot of verbiage that did not give source information. I hope that I did not take out too much. Either way, I would like your thoughts. Jess Wallace

Hi Merilee,

I've found we apparently have some family in common. Since your privacy setting is orange, I can't see how we may be related. My Burton branch was in the Cumberland Gap area of Kentucky for at least 3 generations. Several summers were spent at Lake Cumberland when I was knee-high to a grasshopper.
