My journey into the past started a few months after my oldest grandchild was born. One day while holding her, I was telling her some of the stories I had been told as a small girl. I got to wondering who would be there to tell other granchildren and great-grandchildren those same stories. So I decided to write some of them down and keep them for future generations.
Now to some that would be the end of it, but not so for me. As I was getting one of the stories from my dad, he said, "Well, you know Uncle Arthur's boy.......". I sat there thinking, "I might know Uncle Arthur's boy if I could place just who Uncle Arthur was!" So I decided if I didn't know who Uncle Arthur was, how would future generations know who he was? And so began my journey into the past.
I'm in the process of changing as many of the pages here as I can, I am hoping to put in some of the stories that I have heard, trust me some are not for the repeating! I am also hoping to get some of the recipes from our different ancestors to put on a recipe page, so if you have a favorite recipe or two please contribute it to our family recipe page. If you have stories that you would like put on the pages for others to read please send them along to be included. I don't want just the statistics of who our family was, I would like to bring them alive for our children. Do you have pictures that you would like to share? If so please either email them to me to include here or email me for my snail mail address and send me copies. I don't have many pictures of my paternal grandparents so if anyone out there has any pictures of Elbert Lee (Jack) Householder or his wife Flossie Laurenia (Martin) (Gruggett) Householder, please let me know.
I hope you enjoy your stroll through our family. Hopefully, I will also be adding more pages of information soon.
