When we turn our hearts to our ancestors, something changes inside of us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves~Russell M. Nelson

This Week On My Family History Calendar

June 28-July 4~

June 28~
  My paternal 3rd Great Grandfather, Alpheus J. Baker (1824-1917) would be celebrating his 191st birthday on this day.  Alpheus was born in the Sumter District area of South Carolina to Jessie Hinton Baker (1795-1866) and Mary Ellen (Jones) Baker (1795-1839).

My maternal Great Great Grandparents, William Treadford Roberts (1894-1959) and Beulah Mae (Price) Roberts (1897-1980) were married 101 years ago most likely in the Columbia, Richland, South Carolina area.  William was 20 and Beulah 17 when, as the family story goes, they eloped due to Beulah's family being against the marriage. They became the parents of 12 children.

 Are we kin? Please contact me. Together we can find our people.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
