March 28 ~ On this day in 1801 my 3x great-grandaunt, Catherine Benzie was baptized in Oyne, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
March 30 ~ On this day in 1785 my 4x great-granduncle, William Gourlay is born in Ceres, Fife, Scotland.
Also on this day in 1808 my 3x great-grandaunt, and niece of William, Elizabeth Gourlay, is born in Ceres, Fife, Scotland.
Finally, this day is marked by the death, in 1985 of my great-grandaunt, Laura Hazel Graber Rittenhouse. Because Aunt Laura was the youngest in a family where my great-grandmother, Ella, was the oldest I was fortunate enough to have a link back to my great-great-grandparents even though my great-grandmother, Ella, died when I was only 4 1/2. Aunt Laura was very interested in family history and it is because of her that I have so many wonderful pictures on the Graber side of the family.
March 31 ~ On this day in 1893, Roy Duncan, my Grandma Belle Duncan Quick's uncle. I say it that way because Grandma Quick was my mother's step-mother so Roy comes up as "no blood relationship" in my genealogy software although my Mom knew him as Uncle Roy.
April 3 ~ This day is marked by the death in 1793 of Ann Magdalena Laesser in Bern, Switzerland. Anna is possibly my 6x great-grandmother.
Also on this day is born Kenneth Logan Keefer, the granduncle on their father's side of my nieces and nephew.
