About Our Family Research

I have spent extensive time and effort researching my families heritage/roots. I found a death record on my grandfather (Herbert Pagan) on the internet & sent away for a copy of his original Social Security Application. Getting this information in the mail was like getting a letter from the dead; his writting was not only on this copy, but he wrote exactly like my father as well! That form provided me with his birth place, his birthdate, address @ that time, occupation and most inportantly, his father & mothers name. With that I sent away for his fathers Social Security Application as well. I found his name to be Gordon Alfred Pagan, married to Zelma Wrather (2nd wife)= he also wrote identical to the others and his fathers name was James David Pagan. James had several kids, one was Osward Pagan who had a son named Oswald Pagan, whom called me almost immediatly after I e-mailed him. He and his daughter, Abby have been a wealth of information - filling me in on very interesting facts and names as well as sending me pictures of Osward and Oswald (Don). Don looks alot like my own dad and is his age. His dad looks alot like my aunt Barbara, my dads twin sister. I think my most favorite picture is the one Abby sent of Lora Glass, James David Pagan's wife. She was a Siminole Indian who i immigrated from Florida in 1937. She appeared very much Indian! I have always wondered where the Indian in us comes from. My dads mother, Olive Johnson, was Blackfoot Indian as well. I know that Alfreds dad was David Pagan, he was married to Hannah Haws. David died @ about 42 years old of a heart-attack while feeding his livestock in his barn. Other than 1 family member, according to Don, no man in our blood-line has lived beyond the age of 65, nor has anyone else been know to die of a heart-attack or cancer. I know now that our heritage stems from Scotland ( We have Scot, Indian & a little Irish in us)
