Are You My Cousin?: More Elliotts Arrive By E-mail

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!

More Elliotts Arrive By E-mail

The Genealogy Happy Dance continues!

More Elliotts have arrived in my inbox! Or in this case, Barnetts.

This is a photograph of Cynthia Elliott (1869-1950)  and Samuel Currie Barnett with their children Campbell "Cam" Barnett (b. 23 Nov 1900), Edward Scott Barnett (b. 8 Oct 1887), and Marion Barnett (b. 19 Apr 1893). Both Cynthia and Samuel are buried at the Black Walnut Baptist Church in Cluster Springs, VA. Cynthia is the oldest of two daughters born to Elias Elliott and Panthea Overby.  Cynthia is the sister to my GG grandmother Harriet "Hattie" Elliott.

The resemblance between the two women is striking.  I wonder what their mother looked like.

That's really neat Lisa! I've only been at this a little while, but I find that when I am able to find out something about one of my ancestors, or find a picture of them, that I suddenly feel affection and pride for them, even if I never knew them when they were alive. It's as if we suddenly have a special connection. Do you feel a similar feeling?
