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.

We're Related - Oh, Yes, We Are!

This week, I have a hit!  The verified relationship is with John Edwards, who was a senator from North Carolina, involved in some very unfortunate, scandalous things.  Regardless of things a person does, family is family.  According to the We’re Related app, he is my 4th cousin 1x removed. 

Here is how we are connected:

William Rowland is my 3rd great-grandfather and the 4th great-grandfather of Johnny Reid Edwards, aka John Edwards.

This one was easy enough for me to get verification on. I have obituaries and information from my Granny Gunter regarding her part of this line. So, I just had to work my way down from Grandpa Rowland to John Edwards.  Ancestry.com did not provide the name of John Edwards' father as he is apparently still alive, so I had to go to other sources for that. A quick Internet search netted me the name of his father. 

Biography.com only lists his father's first name in this article: John Edwards. Wikipedia lists his father's middle name as well in this listing: John Edwards.  Wikipedia is typically not an approved source, and I understand that, but it at least gives me a place to start.  Until I can find information via an approved source, this works for me.

I will continue to search Newspaper.com for relevant articles pertaining to this family and attach them to my tree at Ancestry.com.

Have a blessed day!

  1. You make a great detective. I love you. Zing! Zing!

    1. Thanks. Lucky for some folks that I'm not as good as Monk is. :)
      I love you, too, my Zing!

  2. I understand how it can be embarrassing to have a politician in your family, but it could of been worse - could of been a lawyer! 😉😜😎

    1. Hi Barbara, I'm not embarrassed. I just don't like some of the things other folks do. Their shame is their own, not mine. I have too many wrongdoings of my own to have time to be embarrassed about someone else's. :)

      As I understand it, he was/is a lawyer, too.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed day. :)
