A little behind

Well I have to say sorry for not being so up to date. Horrible of me!!!!
I had a cyst removal on Thurs. The area hurts now...and itches!!!
We just got thru a nasty ice storm. I am so glad it came over the weekend so I did not have to walk to work...I am sure I would have fell down.

A few girls at Perfectly Sinful psp siggy group have made me some really nice Breast Cancer Awareness Siggys (Since I am a survivor)
These are them:They did a great job on them!!!!
Anyhow I am off to bed.

Added to more to my ancestor's line

I started this last night...and then I lost internet here is the blog:
So I was playing around tonight and stumbled into more of my family line. Which this happens occasionally when I leave a part of my line or person alone for a bit. And the viola!!!
Tonight I found that Leydia Royalty Kinnison's parents were James Royalty and Pricillia Gaither And James Royalty was born in 1835 in Leitchfield, KY dying in 1917 his mom was Lydia Kennison, which could mean that the family line crossed surnames!! Ugg..them southerners!! LOL "You maybe a redneck if you tree does not branch!", His dad was Charles Royalty. I have found that Charles's parents are Isham Royalty and Catherine. Charles's birth place is questionable. I know he was born in 1786, either in KY or VA. Isham's Parents are Daniel Royalty and Margaret once again now we pose the question of birthplace for Daniel...either KY or VA....why these two are hard to figure out with the birthplace in these two states is beyond me!!! Most likely tho Daniel was born in Abermarle, VA. Now that I found out also that Margaret was born in VA and died in VA, I am guaranteeing tha both Charles and his dad were born in VA also.
Now Margaret died in a place called Dinwiddie, Dinwiddie, VA...I googled this ...this is a little town with what looks like 4 streets!! Exciting!!! She was born in place called Stafford, VA another googled adventure...which also is a little town, but alot bigger than Dinwiddie is. LOL
Her parents are John Tyler and Mary Downman ( I am sure everyone is confused by now with all this!!!) John Tyler was definantly born in VA, King George, Richmond (now King George County),VA in 1670 died 1757 in the same place. Mary was born in 1671 in King George, Richmond, VA and died in 1766 in Falmouth, VA. Her parents were WIlliam Downman and Million Travers.

Tonight when I have some time I will be able to add the rest....

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Ahnentafel Roulette

This week's edition of Saturday Night Genealogy Fun has been posted by Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings:It's Saturday Night - time for some Genealogy Fun (even though I'm stuck in Santa Cruz without Internet access).

Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):

1) How old is your father now, or how old would he be if he had lived? Divide this number by 4 and round the number off to a whole number. This is your "roulette number."

2) Use your pedigree charts or your family tree genealogy software program to find the person with that number in your ahnentafel. Who is that person?

3) Tell us three facts about that person with the "roulette number."

4) Write about it in a blog post on your own blog, in a Facebook note or comment, or as a comment on this blog post.

5) If you do not have a person's name for your "roulette number" then spin the wheel again - pick your mother, or yourself, a favorite aunt or cousin, or even your children!

1. My dad was born in that makes him 63. Divide that by 4 and get 15.75 rounded off is 16. So 16 is my roulette number. LOL

2. Well I am not sure yet. This side is my elusive side. The Woerner's have been hard to track...

5. Ok let's decide.....a number.... to do the ahnentafel roulette game....waiting for anyone on facebook to give me a random number..think I will ask Raul instead. He said number 13...
3) Tell us three facts about that person with the "roulette number."

This person is Blanche Grace Douglass, she is my great grandmother, mother to my grandfather on my mother's side.
1. She was born in Sevierville, Sevier, TN on 24 December 1891.
2. She is listed in both the 1910 and 1920 Census in Knox County ,TN
3. Her parents are Isham L. Douglass and Mary Elizabeth Hardin
