Guest Blogging at In Their Footsteps ✦

I had a Great Opportunity to be a Guest Blogger on September 20th, 2015 for Author Carolyn Schott 

It was about Traveling to your Ancestral Roots. I have blogged about this many times. So I wanted to contribute my Story when she asked for Guest Bloggers. 

It was a wonderful opportunity to be amongst other Researchers who went to their Ancestral Towns and got a feel for their Ancestors Roots

It's a Series she does called:

 In Their Footsteps


Here is a LINK to my Work I submitted on behalf of myself and my Family about My Journey to Sweet Home Alabama! and others Journey's to their Ancestral Roots.

Ivy Mae Watson Death Certificate

I ran across this on my Family tree and I kept seeing this sweet little chubby cheeked baby. 

My Cousin Pam had submitted her picture. Elmer is Pam's Grandfather and my Great Grandma Cora are Siblings. 

I hadn't paid much attention to the details. I was astonished this was over a coffee cup. She died, Due to inhalation from a coffee cup of steam. 

It also mentions Peritonitis, if my eyes are doing right by me.  So I wonder if something else was going on that this steam aggravated the situation?

 As a tea connoisseur. I was taken aback. 

I love tea. I'm obsessed with tea cups.  I love all the babies and want to remember them on my Blog. I have done this before. She also has a brother named Mark who died tragically. 

 This is his Remembrance link.

 These are moments when I realize how short our Lives can be and how they have meaning to someone with so much love.

They have a Life that was Unsung.

Just for that. I'll try to keep them in our Remembrance even tho' we didn't get to know her. 

You are Remembered, Ivy Mae!

The White Little Bible

Every so often... I go through Daddy's belongings inside his WW2 Army Footlocker, I overlooked the first time. I have yet to process all that he has. This is just one of many Genealogical Gems inside.

my true roots
Daddy's WW2 Footlocker in my Office

That's what this Blog Post is about. 

Daddy had this White Little Bible with a Name written inside.

I'm not sure of the reason he kept it?
He lived in many States before settling in Pennsylvania.

He also served in WW2. I often wonder if he found this in a chapel in Belgium? Did he run across this on a grassy bluff, or the sands of Europe while he was fighting?

SO...I'm posting it on my Blog in hopes, that it can be found by that special person. 

What do you Think? 

Leave me a NoTe,  Comment or
any Suggestion.

Paying it Forward
Random Act of Kindness 
is due.
