    Yes ma'am! I am. Furthest back I can find anything is on my mom's side of the family. That's 1845. There were very distant cousins here but I don't really count them cause they are so many times removed.

    My GG grandpappys mother was a Gatewood. She had a grand nephew by the name of Lt. Charles Gatewood. Look him up!

    Hubby's several-times great grandfather Meredith was in Texas, called to help defend the Alamo, but when it fell he was re-directed to San Jacinto to help Houston out. He helped guard Santa Anna after his surrender. That was 1836, correct? I think he moved to Texas in 1834, when he was around 16 years old. Crazy.

    Meredith is the 10th visible man from the left in the front row. He is wearing a dark hat, and is seated to the right of the gentleman tipping his hat at the camera. We believe it was taken in 1883. The caption on the back is "1836 Texas Veterans at Belton". Crazy! And a few of Hubby's great uncles look eerily similar to Meredith. It's the ears.



    My family is relatively new to the United States - my great grandfather sailed around The Horn on a fishing ship from Norway back in the 1870s.

    My paternal grandparents with my father (the older boy), 1956


    My paternal grandparents...1950s or early 60s

    As related by my now-deceased grandmother, my grandfather wearing just a T-Shirt, as pictured above, was very controversial with his own family. His aunt would ask my grandmother, "How could you marry a man who goes around outside in his underwear?"
