I have been meeting some other family members through my research and unfortunately found out that I may be related to this hillbilly version of the mafia. One researcher claims that somewhere along the way we married into the Hatfield clan. I am not so sure I am ready to believe this yet. Would you want to be related to these people? They look possessed or something....especially some of those kids. Oh dear.....why couldn't I have found out that my ancestors were some uppity social elite group of people. One thing I have found out is that it seems that both sides of my family members have been in this country since the 1700's. I have been able to go back this far with some. And most all of the males members have been in the wars. I haven't seen any from the civil war yet. Someone was in the war of 1812, and both Grandparents were in World War I along with all my Dad's uncles. Every time I look at the photo above I feel sorry for myself. Maybe I will stop this family research.......oh dear.
