Are You My Cousin?: Cousins Connect

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

Cousins Connect

One of the really nice things about this blog is the opportunity connect with cousins on the family lines that I research and blog.  Recently, another set of Haley cousins and I did just that.  We connected.  They are the descendants of Ivy Haley Singleton, sister of my great-grandmother Winnie Haley Carr.  Ivy Haley was the fourth child of Will and Clara Haley.  She married James Monroe Singleton in 1913.  Unfortunately, Ivy died 10 years later leaving behind her husband and 5 young children.  

Ivy's descendants shared these photos with me, and I am happy to share them here on my blog. (Hint, hint, other cousins!)

Below are two photographs of Will and Clara Haley that I had not seen. Receiving photographs of my GG grandparents in my inbox always makes me smile!
