Amanuensis Monday: Mulford Family Tree

I have a lot of tangent families in my stack of research. My mother's great aunt Anna Mulford married Dan Ray Long. They had no children but my mother adored Aunt Ana. So, when my mother became interested in genealogy, she received all of Aunt Anna's family records. I don't feel like I should spend much time on this family line. It sounds mean, but there are so many branches and connected tangents on my 'main lines' that I just need to know when to severe research ties.

Nevertheless, there was a Mulford Family Bible that passed into my mother's possession. Unfortunately, that bible no longer exists. Long, tragic story that I can't share. But I do have a surviving extract from that Bible for what it may be worth:

  1. Even if a relative never married and left no children, I sometimes do a little bit of research and share a bit about them. I feel like I'm doing a good thing by remembering those who don't have direct descendants to remember them. For example I wrote about my 2nd great grand aunt and her husband who had no children at From Maine to Kentucky.

    1. True. I have a few people in my great grandmother's Bible who had no children and I write about them. There are quite a few people I'm trying to remember because no one else will.
