I was born in Phoenix but moved to Ohio when I was three weeks old. My family comes from Ohio. My Dad was a radio man and joined the Coast Guard when I was 4 during the Vietnam war. We moved to Japan and lived there for 3 years then moved back to the states when I was 8. We lived in Carson, California, San Diego, Petaluma and Lakeside California.
I went to San Diego State university and received a degree in English with an Emphasis on Creative Writing.
I married at 21 and lived in La Mesa, California. We moved to Japan from there. We lived in Chiba Prefecture in the town of Shiroi.
I gave birth to my daughter in Japan. We moved back to San Diego after 2 years. We were going to stay longer but things didn't work out.
We moved a few more times. I had my son in Tooele, Utah then divorced my first husband in Washington State.
I met my current husband online. He's Canadian so now I'm in British Columbia.
I have two Grandsons and five step-grandchildren. My daughter and her family live in TX and my son lives in Mt. Vernon, WA and is attending Western Washington University.
I've learned a lot since I joined Wikitree. I love research and am very interested in the 16th and 17th Centuries in England and her Colonies. I just earned my pre-1500 badge and became a Magna Carta Member. I am working on James Claypoole's line back to his Surety Baron ancestors, Hugh and Roger Bigod. In the future I would like to help more on the Quaker Project.
I have started a Clawson surname project, please join me!
