Hi, Sherry. I wrote you in November 2010 about . I recently came aorcss your website again and have enjoyed reading more of your poetry. I asked a Chandler researcher in Kentucky about your family (knowing only your dad’s name) and she was able to trace your ancestors for several generations. Are you familiar with your ancestry at all? I will be happy to share what our researcher learned.
