Formerly, "Just Thinking", this blog presents the thoughts and experiences of a family historian working to demystify the past and uncover the stories of an elusive ancestry. NC surnames are YARBOROUGH, GREEN, HAWKINS, DUNSTON, DAVIS, BROWN, ROSS, HILL, BRYANT, and DAVENPORT in Franklin, Warren, Halifax, and Tyrrell Counties.
With so much of my family's history shrouded in darkness, is my personal mission to uncover the hidden details of my ancestry and bring them INTO THE LIGHT.

(Amost) Wordless Wednesday - My Mom the Military Wife
My mom, Maryanne Hill Yarborough, standing, center.
This photo would have been taken sometime between 1956 and 1964, most likely in the late fifties, though. The back has our last name, "Yarborough", faintly written in pencil (probably because this was the copy set aside for my parents), and then, in my mother's handwriting, "A coffee for Army Officers' Wives". The location is unknown, but was most likely either Bremerhaven, Germany, or Cleveland, Ohio.
