Looking back over my previous blog entries I note that by June 2016 I had identified bore than 2700 ancestors. Now in midAugust the count is 3366 ancestors identified. Those tree branches are getting heavier!
I have spent almost the entire morning watching our cat stalking a little field mouse. I am not sure of the outcome. Occasionally the mouse seemed to get away but the cat would go tearing down the stairs after it and later reappear with the poor little mouse in its mouth. The cat would let go and the little mouse would “hide” again behind the waterng can or one of the pots. The “game” would begin again.

grave marker for my 7th Great Grandmother Elizabeth Seaver in Eliot Burying Ground Roxbury Massachusetts
I wish some dedicated soul would restore this marker so that we could read the original inscription
Elizabeth Seaver died in December 1731. She was 88 years old.
