I have to disagree in the area of "family stories", to me they are invaluable. They take the names and dates and give them a personality. Make them a person, a human being. William Fon's statement made me think of a man who was humerous. Made me think of a child being raised by a man who had been shot in the head during the Civil War and could still be humerous when he was a grown man. So much of the time, while I am researching, I find myself listing names & dates and wondering "what kind of people were they, how did they live". I know you can read every book you can find about history, but it doesn't put a face to the name, it doesn't tell you who they were, History can be very dry! So stories are important to me.
As I told John, I really enjoyed reading the "lively" discussion between you. (It put on a face to you both.)
To put your mind at ease, I have changed my GED at home and put Harrison with his rightful father. I will up-date rootsweb soon.
As to your last comment, stubborn, yes, cantankerous, maybe, old codger, never. We're not old, just getting older.
Enjoy the Humor
