For Da

It's been a long time since I've been here. Much has happened.

I have gotten so much information on the Craig family from two genealogical super sleuths. ( Thank You). I learned that Margaret Kane was indeed born in Ireland but to an American parent. John J. Flynn was likely not a Rough Rider. I, also , learned how to make marinara sauce.

While Joseph Craig did not have money it seems his family did. Interestingly enough , some of them live right near me and have for probably over 50 years. I have to wonder if his drinking problem caused them to write him off. Now here is the exciting me anyway. I have been contacted by two second cousins. Nana's great nieces. It has been my joy to share this information with them. I will tell you Nana and her two sisters did not like talking about the Craigs. I will have more at a later date.

Again I want to reiterate...put your name everywhere. You will be found. It took my cousins a year or two to find me but they did.

On a sadder note, my father passed away this past August. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him. It is a struggle for me. Don't smoke...if you do quit.

This post is dedicated to him
