Richard, I am constantly amazed at howmany families intermarried within their little communities and specific families.It wasn't uncommon for brothers to marry sisters in the same family and vice versa and cousins marrying cousins (now that can be hard to untangle when the names are the same and they all have children with the same names.)But oh it is so much fun to figure out all the different lines.This keeps this ole 60 year old brain alive and working at full steam. Thanks for your assistance-----I appreciate your help. Our Bigbee family married Strother, Wright, DeArman et al, Calvert, Boone and on and on-------- and like so many familys before them---- moved on westward.My husband'smothers family moved from Va, NC and SC and KY into TN andthen Texas and on out to California.My father's family came from England and Scotland into Canada and down into Dakota Territory in 1878 then on to California.My grandmother and mother came from Norway in 1920 . Mother's father died when she was just 3 mths old.My husband's father came from Greece as a young man and was a Cavalry Soldier for 30 yrs .Lives entertwined forever by their children's marriage.Genealogy refocuses who we really are.
