Yesterday was Sandra Jean Taliaferro’s birthday.
Sandra was as stubborn, fiery and brilliant as they come! A master with the pen and an impeccable researcher, she was sister, cousin, confidant to me.
We shared several arguments, endless laughs and most likely more than one ASKEW-JACKSON-DORSEY Ancestor between us.
I was reminded yesterday of our April 2010 road trip to GREENE County, where local response to my on display tattoos brought us to tears , Sandra ‘ate crow’ when I demonstrated the art of gleaning intel from COMPLETE strangers in a country town, and how we celebrated being led to a small church graveyard by new friend Minister Baugh, where we discovered MANY of San’s Ancestors! Tears, tweets and pictures were flying!:)
We miss you San. I miss you San.
Should you decide to enlist us to finish tracking your/our GREENE and FULTON County Ancestors, we will be ready!:)
