Sept. 1911

.I have been working on the Thayer Family Tree and knew that Ernest and Hattie had another son, Leslie but have never seen any proof of it anywhere or mention of what year he was born.  Last night when I finished my blog I went back to and did some more work on the Tree.  I was working on Uncle Bing and found him in the census of 1900 so took that and put it on his profile and when it went on it listed the other members of the house hold and there was Leslie listed at four months old.  That is older than I ever heard he lived to and that gave me the date that he was born.  This was just as we were on our way to bed so this morning I went through Web’s diaries and found the diary for 1898, 1899, 1900, and 1901.  When I finish this blog I will get dinner into the oven and then start reading the diaries and see if I can find Leslie’s birth and death and anything that Web says about him.  I get all excited when I find a new bit of history but must tend to the present before getting lost in the past.  So on with 1911.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
