Facing the rising sun of a new day begun

No, it wasn’t dawn. More like 2:30 pm., as we hiked back home from the Inauguration. But the sun suddenly threw some rays through the clouds, and hit the Washington Monument. The final lines of the Black National Anthem hung in my mind…

Facing the rising sun,
Of a new day begun,
Let us march on
‘Til victory is won.

March on, we will.

I am a keeper of my family's lore, chasing after my ancestors' tales in south central New York, southwestern Pennsylvania and Southside Virginia. The stories and photographs that I share on this blog are my intellectual property. While I do my very best to provide well researched posts, I do not pretend to have reached genealogical proof standards. Therefore, much of this work is to generate conversation among interested parties. If you would like to share my work or my records, please contact me: dkaysdays (at) gmail (dot) com.
