My name is Marcia Douglas & I am a Midwestern lady from Indiana. I love to travel, learn foreign languages, cooking, history and family history research.
My first stop? I’ll start with my Grandparents, Jasper & Sophia. Now, here is a dichotomy. He was from the foothills of the Smokey Mountains in East Tennessee. Son of Joseph & Sarah, his ancestors fought in the Civil War and the Revolutionary War and even farther back, his roots were in Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland, Germany & Romania. Sophia was from Ontario, Canada, daughter of James of Galway, Scotland and Suzannah, a French Canadian girl, whose family had originally come to Canada from Pictou, Normandy, France. How they came to meet is a story all its own. My roots? A combination of all of them plus, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, New York, and Rhode Island.
So, in future posts, I hope to write about travel, cooking and history in the places my ancestors came from.Stay tuned . . .
