Update, October 2014:

Added a new blog category, "65", that may appeal to some of y'all.  And I am getting back to work. Stay tuned for more stories.  Later...


Update, Dec. 17, 2013:

Using, and a few other sources, I have filled out the Rose-Armitage family tree back to the immigrant ancestor (and I'm sure there are mistakes, but this thing is a work in progress). It has been an amazing journey for me with lots of stories, lots of heroes, lots of surprises. You can see the whole tree on, The Edwin Rose Family Tree.

So, I'm re-starting this blog and sharing some of the stories of our Rose and Armitage ancestors.  They are quite a crew.

The photographs are still here and the other older material.If you have a prayer request--or a praise report--leave it in the prayer app.  God is good!

And now... join me as I share stories from our past.  Feel free to join and leave your comments.
