THE MCBRIDE'S OF UNION COUNTY,KENTUCKY

Updated March 7, 2007

About Our Family Research


I STARTED MY QUEST TO KNOW WHO WE WERE AND FROM WHENCE WE CAME. TT WAS SEPTEMBER 20TH 1967 WHEN MY FAMILY OF "ORGIN" WAS STANDING AT THE GRAVE SITE OF MY DAD, STRONIE SAVERIAN MCBRIDE WHO HAD SEEN THE BEAUTY OF LAST EARTHLY SUNSET,SINCE HIS BIRTH ON JANUARY 26,1898. WE LOOKED ACROSS THE SAINT ANN CEMETERY IN MORGANFIELD, UNION COUNTY, KENTUCKY AND NO MORE THAN 100 YARDS BY THE WAY A CROW FLIES, WAS A BEAUTIFUL GRAVE MARKER WITH THE NAME OF E. D. MCBRIDE INSCRIBED ON IT. HE SOON BECAME KNOWN TO US AS OUR GG GRAND FATHER, EDWARD DOMINIC MCBRIDE. HOW COULD SO CLOSE OF KIN NOT TELL ME OR ANY OF MY SIBLINGS ABOUT OUR HERITAGE;IT IS NOW MARCH 7 2007. I AM 74 YEARS OLD AND VERY FEW DAYS HAVE PASSED IN THE PAST WHEN I CHECKED OUR MAILBOX HOPING TODAY WOULD BRING THE AQUAINTANCE OFF YET ANOTHER OF MY KINFOLK OR TURN ON MY COMPUTER. HOPING TO CONNECT YET ANOTHER OF OUR CLAN. IN ALL THIS TIME, ONE FAMILY REUNION. IT MAKES ME SAD,MAD AND LIKE I HAVE BEEN HAD. BUT I FORGIVE EASILY.
