About

I worked within the U.S. Department of Defense for 31 years, then I decided to retire to do what I love most.   Now I focus on family, genealogy, travel, write, photography, and enjoying life!

This blog is focused on short stories associated with my family tree.  My Mother will be 80 years old in August 2015.  I want to capture as much as I can to share with the world!

Come join me on my journey, and hopefully I will inspire you to start and continue your journey.  We get one life so let’s make it worth living!

  1. I was googling Amanda Lambert Barnes and I got your site. I was wondering if you are a relative of her family? Amanda was my gggrandmother’s sister.

    • The history of this area appears to be well documented, and there are many treasures in the local library especially the genealogy section of the Bull Run Library. My family is from Alabama and surrounding states. Sorry, I am not a relative. However, I am very interested in the African American history in this area because I live here. I think it’s awesome that the house and it’s history are being preserved!

    • Darlene, I’ve heard of you from Ethel Lindsey — you would be interested in attending the Christian Family reunion in Marshall, Va on July 9, 2016. You’ll meet many, many of your Christian relatives there. I just gave Ethel the information today, or send me an email. Delores Jones (daughter of Ethel Christian Cummings)
