My Genealogical Starting Point

A younger Daniel Sydney Jones

The best place to start is at the beginning, right?  So that is where I will begin this blog.  My Great- Grandparents on my grandma’s side are my genealogical starting point.  For this blog, this is the commencement of the line I will be following.  There is no point in overwhelming myself (or anyone else) is there?

Daniel Sydney Jones and Lucretia Tallman are my great-grandparents.  They met and were married in Schyuler County, Missouri and then later moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado for health reasons.  They had seven children and I count myself very lucky to be the granddaughter of their youngest.  They were farmers who made it through the great depression, parents who dealt with tragedy as they learned of their son’s death during WWII, and while I never got the chance to meet either of them, what I do know of them makes me proud to call myself their descendant.

I have a great deal of information on Daniel and Lucretia and will post more information as I go along.  I just wanted to start off with a little introduction to the beginning of my line before I got in any further with their branches.

Here is the link for my family tree on Ancestry.com if you would like to check and see if we have some common ancestors.
