Last Monday 68 years ago, our (2nd) great-grandmother Johanna von Hinten passed away in Minden, Germany.
Our 11th (and 12th) great-grandfather William Southard immigrated from England to the colonies some time before 1640.
Today we remember my father Jupp, whose family relations were a closed book for us for a long time.
Born along Aquia Creek on the east side of Virginia in 1714, our 8th (and 9th) great-grandfather William Suddarth moved a good bit further west into the heart of Virginia before he died on Christmas Day 1761.
