Important Notice!!!

Praise the Lord! After 6 weeks or so of dealing with medical facilities, we are finally back in our own home. David's foot is looking much, much better. There are still a few hurdles to cross, but he'll make it.

Please bear with us as we get adjusted to being home again and get back in the swing of blogging again.

Thank you for continued prayers!!!

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up since YouTube has decided he is unworthy of monetization since his isn't a huge channel, please subscribe to his YouTube channel and watch the videos. That would really make his day! He has to have at least 1000 subscribers and 4,000 minutes of watch time within 30 days in order to be able to keep the monetization option.

Celebration Sunday Genealogy Happy Dance


This is my first time participating in this genealogy writing event. I hope to make it a regular feature here.  The purpose of this event is to celebrate our genealogy discoveries of the week.

My discovery this week concerns my third great-grandfather Berry Madison Pressley.  Here is my path back to him:

I found an article in the Pickens Sentinel, Pickens, South Carolina, dated 25 May 1904, regarding the upcoming Old Soldiers' Celebration to be held on 3 June 1904. At this celebration, veterans of the War Between the States were to receive a Cross of Honor. This article lists Berry M. Pressley as one of the intended recipients. I found this article through Newspapers.com

Old Soldiers' Celebration, Berry M. Pressley

Berry Madison Pressley was born 3 October 1824, in Pickens, South Carolina.  He enlisted in service to the Confederacy in 1862 in the 10th Battalion Cavalry.  He died 6 March 1909, in Pickens, South Carolina. He is buried, with a wife on either side of him, in the Sharon United Methodist Church Cemetery in Pendleton, South Carolina.
