~from...Making Tracks Out of Virginia~If you read that post on Tracks of My Georgia Ancestors, you know that 'Heathen' is the name my 4xGreat Grandmother retained from her months of living with the Mohawks.
It's a wonder that I am here at all. Just think, if Lucy's mother Martha, had not had the good sense to threaten her husband Daniel with...
"I'm leaving, Daniel. You can stay or go, but know this...if you stay, your heathen kids are staying with you."
...why I might have been born with a head full of black hair standing straight out from my scalp....hmmmm!!! The other scenerio of my impending existence and Lucy's hooking up with John Ichabod, hung on the Baptismal Dunking in a backwoods creek. Like I said, it's a wonder I'm here at all!
Fortunately for me, that Baptismal Dunking brought together Two Ancestor Families who for generations took to the dunking like ducks in a pond. You see, Lucy and John Ichabod's Daddys were the FIRST Dyed In The Wool and Dunked Southern Baptist in our family. Their history has been well documented in all kinds of Georgia Baptist History books and Genealogy Resources, and of course I'm obliged to share and further document these Two 5xGreat Grandfathers on Tracks of My Georgia Ancestors.
You too, are welcome to read my research and documentation. I will say, though, that because my Aunt Savannah insisted on it being written with the utmost respect and regard for the Facts, Religion and Family Histories, there are no 'SueFictionFootnotes'.
I respectfully submit the following Tracks of My Georgia Ancestors Posts
with deep regard for the facts and appreciation of my
Ancestors Religous and Genealogical History.
