About Kay Strickland

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.

The temperatures dipped below 20* F last night at Francis Slocum State Park (PA) and the marsh this morning was edged in ice.  Green is peeking out, though, and hope for spring’s permanent arrival live on!!
