updates to research

A quick overview of things I have learned about my family thus far from genealogical research:

  • was contacted by three "adoptees" that I share DNA with but we are still trying to figure out who the parents are
  • realized that many of my branches in the NC/TN area (my father's mom side) is extremely intertwined... meaning that several families married into each other and several cousins married each other
  • found out that my great grandmother was married twice- her first marriage was at a very young age and didn't last long before she married my great grandfather. I am really curious to find out what happened to this first husband
  • broke through a brick wall with my great grandmother Kate Baker- finally figured out her parent was Cornelius Baker...and he was a very known reverend in his area. 
  • also, my aunt's DNA has confirmed a lot!
