In what I believe was the summer of 1967, I was in Floral Park. My father, mother, sister, myself were probably visiting from South Carolina. It would have been my grandparent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. I believe that my grandfather (my father's father) was extremely proud that they had made it to 50 years as none of his siblings had done so. Most had either died or out lived their respective spouses before reaching that milestone. One of my grandmother's sisters was visiting (Stella or Hazel). She told us that my grandmother was older that she told people. She was actually older that my grandfather. There was some mention of her taking the birth date of a younger sister who had passed away. There was also mention of a twin. Originally I thought that either Stella or Hazel had a female twin that died and Laura had used her birthday. I have since learned that Laura was a twin. While they were christened together in 1888, there is no further information on Clara.

9/15/18 I find it "strange" that growing up I only heard about my father's father's parents and the Irish heritage that contributed to my makeup. "I was descendent from the ancient kings of Ireland" so my father said. I have done sone research on the Walsh side of the family, and still working on it.

My father's mother was German. I have hit a brickwall but I do go back and work on it when the opportunity arises. I hope to make another trip to Missouri to continue my research.

My mother's family is more interesting. I qualify to join the DAR from my mother's father DeGraff Austin family. Much has already been documented.

My mother's mother's mother was from England, and met her future husband in Illinois I think. My mother use to have their love letters. (Wonder where they are now.) I know I have distance cousins in Canada. My great great grandfather died in the Civil War and is buried in Alexandra Virginia.

I appreciate your added sourcing so very much. Thank you. However, aren't the sources of vital records credible enough in the original sources, adding an outside source can lead to more errors and more places for errors to occur? Weird engineering ideologies...

Sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to you on your question, Patricia. Been a bit of medical challenges around my home the last couple of weeks.

The only way I could find to easily keep track of private profiles so that you could return to them later would be to keep track of them manually. Personally, I would use the Scratchpad on the Navigation Home page for that. If you don't see it, click the My WikiTree link at the top to open the menu, then click Settings. Scroll down on that page to the Navigation page settings and make sure there is a checkmark beside Scratchpad.

Only you can see the things you put on the scratchpad. I keep all kinds of links on mine.

Hope that helps,
