|About Linda Sue COX FAMILY
Hello! My name is Linda Sue.
I have been doing Genealogy for over 30 years. I can remember as a small girl asking my Grandmother Myrtle WEBB- KIMBALL about her family and their names. And asking my mother
Phyllis KIMBALL-COX to talk about the 'OLDEN DAYS'. I have loved going to Cemeteries, and walking and reading the Thombstones from the time I could first read.
I have all ways had a drive to know who my family was. And I know I have driven my family crazy with it. I will start asking them questions to see if they remember who I told them their ancestors where. And my daughter will say "Is there going to be a Quiz?" LOL
I have just started to build this Web Page so I have alot of work to do. I am just putting in the names and dates. I will get to the Sources later. But if you need to know where I got my info from just send me a E-Mail and I will be happy to give it to you.
This is a story that tells you just how I feel.
THE STORY TELLERS
We are the chosen. My feelings are that in each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors; to put flesh on their bones and make them live again; to tell the family story and feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes.
Those who have gone before cry out to us...Tell our story. So we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors you have a wonderful family? You would be proud of us. How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say.
I go beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen.
The bones here are bones of my bones and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giveing up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family
It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and keep us a Nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us that we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence because we are them and they are us. So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family story tellers.
That is why I do my family genealogy and that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on their bones.
