Silver and not the Color of the Day

This is my gramma Catherine (Kate) Baar. Quite lovely!

Below, I am inserting the pedigree chart for my grandmother’s direct line (the maternal side). My gramma, Catherine Lee Davis Baar, was a pretty remarkable woman. She pretty much held our somewhat difficult family together with sheer determination. Don’t get me wrong, my family, we love each other, but to be honest sometimes we can get a wee bit difficult. I guess that is the way of the family. I am not at all surprised to discover that my gramma comes from quite hardy stock! So far I have made connections dating back to the New England settlements in the 1600s. No Mayflower kin, but good solid people.

At any rate, I have been stepping away from my work desk at dinner time and setting up the laptop in the living room with hubby after dinner to work on the family tree. I have been having extremely good fortune with the Silver branch of the tree.

I find it interesting that this particular branch of the family has brought so many people into my life. I will admit that most of them are quite distant in their relation to me, but as I said recently to my 6th cousin once removed…or something of that nature, family is family and I for one love adding new people to my life. It is one of the things I enjoy most.
