52 Ancestors – Week 7 – Favorite Discovery

One of my favorite discoveries to date is always in reference to my 2X-Great Grandmother, Sarah Larkin Beardsley. On her tombstone it is inscribed with Sarah A. Beardsley, MD.

(thank you Google). and theContinue reading “52 Ancestors – Week 7 – Favorite Discovery”

52 Ancestors – Week 4 – Close to Home

Week 4 already. As I was finishing my final ProGen assignment this week, I decided since Beverly Beardsley (1815-1898) was fresh in my mind he would be the perfect subject for this week’s prompt. Beverly Beardsley was born 15 February 1815 in Chesterfield, Essex County, New York and died 19 December 1898 in Ausable, ClintonContinue reading “52 Ancestors – Week 4 – Close to Home”

Tombstone Tuesday – January 21, 2020

Beverly Beardsley is the topic of my final ProGen assignment this week, so I thought it was fitting that he was my first Tombstone Tuesday topic.

Beverley Beardsley lived inContinue reading “Tombstone Tuesday – January 21, 2020”

52 Ancestors – Week 37 – Mistake

Back to catching up again. We all make mistakes. Life happens but sometimes we need to ask ourselves can this really be true.

It is tough going becauseContinue reading “52 Ancestors – Week 31- Brothers”
