Since my last post a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been quite busy. I’ve finished the curriculum phase of my MPH degree and have now moved into the research phase. This means that I no longer am in class every day for three hours a day + working + homework + family + hobbies. Whew! I am glad to have made it this far!
This does mean though that I should gradually start having more time for genealogy and I’m gearing up for that full force. I have a number of small projects underway that I look forward to working on, plus I’m developing a surname specific site for Koonce genealogy.
One of the most interesting things I’ve had go on recently though is being contacted by a possible new cousin! One of my brickwalls has been with one of my 2nd great-grandmothers and figuring out who her parents are. Etta Lennon may have been the daughter of Council Lennon of Columbus County, North Carolina. If she was, then I would be Karen’s 2nd half-cousin twice removed. I believe her grandfather to be a half-brother to my 2nd great-grandmother.
We are hoping that by working with each other, we can make further connections and reveal more information about the Lennon family. Wish us luck!
