Cumpata: Drive and vision of ancestors is alive and well
Thankfully, this will be my last article for 2012. Unlike many people who make a profession out of writing, I truly struggle putting keyboard to screen. You would think that as much as I like to talk, that writing would be easy – not the case.

Given that my mother’s family settled in Harmony in 1870 per our family records, and my grandmother’s family settled closer to Huntley, those two communities hold a special connection to me.

As with many multi-generational families throughout the county, you cannot go anywhere or say anything because you never know who is related to whom.
