I don't have any idea what my family did prior to coming to the US in 1751. Once here, many fought in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, WWI and WWII and aside from their military service, most I believe were farmers, and several even owned a few 'Darkies' as they were commonly called back then.

My Grandmother is the one that did all of the genealogy in the family and she passed about 30 years ago.
