About this blog

This blog is for both my maternal and paternal sides of the family who trace their roots to Virginia, Iowa, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas. I wanted to share the history of my family, their stories, and hopefully connect with cousins.

I grew up listening to the stories of my grandmother and mother. Which inspired me to start researching the history of my family. Genealogy is a true labor of love. It has been very interesting, challenging at times and fun. I hope that you will follow me on my journey as I  trace my family and tell their story. And hopefully inspire others to do the same.  Think were related?  Give me a shout!  I'm claiming family. :)


  1. Hello Denise,
    I'm sure I'm related to the Carr Family i read about on your blog.
    My Grandmother was Gercy Carr, From Texas her Father name was Dave Carr, Dave brothers were John,Frank, and Lewis i think.they came from Oklahoma, Arkansas and maybe Mississippi.
    I do know that Frank Carr married Eva Jones Carr. Eva was full blooded Native American.
    If any of this sound familiar hit me up .
