2002 Trip

In mid-September 2013, I planned a trip to central Kentucky with my sisters, mother and cousin Jane-Ann. We wanted to visit cousins and see sites of places where our grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great grandparents and others had lived. Trips to see our cousins are always magical and memorable, and we were all excited about making this journey.

I have made this trip many times before, but a special trip in 1981 with my Grandma Clark launched me on a never-ending quest to learn more about our family history.

On our 2013 trip, we revisited many of the places Grandma showed me, including several old cemeteries. Jane-Ann said she was "good for one cemetery visit, and then I turn into Ruby." I understood this to mean one cemetery visit per every six hours.... For my part, I agreed not to tear any boards from old houses or barns.*

On the following pages is an account of our 2013 trip with some photos taken during this trip and earlier ones. I hope you enjoy this virtual visit as much as we did the actual trip.
