Prompt #141

I’ve missed some days! Since I moved to part-time hours at my day job, I have never been busier! In the last few days, I’ve had to present a DAR award and help with two school tours at the museum, keep up with the social media for the museum, and take care of a few things with ECIGA, such as getting our second newsletter out.  BUSY!

First of all, though, I need to publish a mea culpa…Joan Jett and the Blackhearts! Not the Heartbreakers. I’m old!

Today is day #141 of the year 2016.

#141: Which ancestor would I most like to meet and why.

This is actually really difficult. First of all, I don’t even know who all of my ancestors are! And, I’m sure all of the ones I do know about would be equally as informative and entertaining.  I most definitely would like to meet William Ballard (b: 1715) and find out who his parents are! He is my 6th-great-GF and lived in Virginia.  He is on my maternal side.  On my paternal side, I’d like to meet John Ford (b: 1809) and talk to him about his family and his travels.  Thirdly, I’d like to meet Ailesann (Dyer) McGuire (b: 1811).  I’d like to know who her parents and siblings are and what it was like growing up in newly-minted Indiana.
