Biography

  • Sacred Ground: A Poem by Myra Hutcheson

Every day those old trees grow taller, fatter off the flesh and blood of our ancestors. They are lost there in the wood, those that begot them that begot us. And as we stumble around trying to guess from which we came, those old sentinels stand, watching over us it seems, whispering to each other as if ancient mothers proud of their toddling infants. Hush and you can hear. Take a walk with me in the wood. When I go there I feel like I’ve made it home. Safe in the arms of my mother, safe on the knees of my father. Every leaf is their flesh. Every branch is their bone. Come lay your head on the warm sandy soil. Listen to the stories they have to tell. Do not waste the wisdom they share.

(I wrote this poem shortly after I began my journey into researching my ancestry. After finding information stating the original gravesite of my Great-Greats (Aaron Hutcheson and Rutha Tharpe Hutcheson) were lost because a descendent that inherited the property either leased or sold it to the timber company, and the graves were destroyed. As I dove deeper into this venture I found that there are so many graves lost to the forest, or to progress, that this poem is for all of them.)

Myra and Gigi are 7th cousins

I had seen someone with your same exact name commenting on FB on Robin and Vivian Frazier’s post. Decided to see if we connect. Apparently through the Hutcheson and Buie lines. Attala and Holmes Co. MS have Hutcheson and Bowie’s. Might be why Wikitree has my parents as 4th cousins.

As far as I know, I don't know Robin and Vivian Frazier. It must have been something random. It's funny how complete strangers can be connected and not know it.

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz, Myra!

Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordinating with others is essential. How To #3 and Project FAQ.

Hi Myra,

Thanks for volunteering! You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and can start adding your family. Let me know if you have any questions. Noted you have your surname duplicated in your profile.

Since WikiTree is different from other genealogy sites, we have a guided tour for new members at New Member How-To. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.

Once you add profiles to WikiTree they become searchable and in my experience persons interested in these profiles will contact you and may provide further information to expand your family tree.

Great to have you on board, enjoy, and good luck growing your branches.

Ludwig :)
