I noticed that quite a few Gaunts were in today's list. Maybe January is a good month for Gaunts. This is the third day I've been able to find a photo of at least one of the family members appearing in the day's events.
Lydia Mack, daughter of Alexander Mack and Elizabeth Neis, was born January 4, 1761, probably in Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. She is my 5th great-grandaunt through the Macks.
Russell Simcox, son of Warren Simcox and Elva Rodenbaugh, was born January 4, 1899. He was married to Eleanor Malinda Eckman, the sister of my grandaunt Bertha Poinsett Eckman and granduncle Edwin Bunting Eckman.
William Ledger Allen, son of Clarence Allen and Agnes Viola Ledger, was born January 4, 1923 in New Jersey. He is my 5th cousin on my Gauntt line through the Allens.
Judith Lorene Gaunt, daughter of Daniel Gaunt and Doris L. Gilmore, was born January 4, 1940 in Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana. She is my 6th cousin.
Dixie Lee Clark, daughter of Neil Gaunt Clark and Wilma Norris, was born January 4, 1941. She is my 5th cousin once removed.
Michele Annette Gaunt was born January 4, 1957. She is my 6th cousin.
Margaret Walsh was born January 4, 1966. She is my 4th cousin through my Nowicki line.
Lora Lee Beasley was born January 4, 1975. She is married to my nephew Joel Richard Kent III.
Danny Paskin and Julia Claire Kushner were married in Long Beach, Los Angeles County, California about January 4, 2015, which is the only marriage in my database for that date. Julia is my 4th cousin once removed.
Philadelphia Lucas, daughter of James Lucas and Philadelphia, died January 4, 1839 in Thursley, Surrey, England at the age of about 58. She is the 3rd-great-grandmother of my aunt Mary McStroul.
Rebecca Gaunt, daughter of Isaac Gaunt and Susannah Webb, died January 4, 1869 at the age of 53, probably in New Jersey. She is my 1st cousin 4x removed.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
