A lot of has been going on with my research~

Hi Everyone!!

I just wanted to update everyone on my research, I had another interview with my hometown newspaper in Plymouth Indiana and will be in the Pilot News the local paper there sometime soon. I was very excited to know that my story and this journey will be told where I was raised and lived most of my life and were my Mother still resides – such a wonderful tribute to my father~ In a lil over a month will be the 1 year anv. of the passing of my father – as the time draws near it is a constant reminder of how much I miss him~

I have uncovered some wonderful information and documentation on the Chagum lineage and what I believe will bring this story together finally and what has also filled in a lot of blanks and questions for me~ I am waiting on 1 more document and will be able then to share it with all of you~

I am at this moment having to do research on Ninegret and the Nyantic lineage – a will was uncovered by Jeff Howe (THANK YOU JEFF) that has tied this all together for me and has linked my lineage now also to Ninegret – it also names several key players of this line along with James Chagum!!! The Archaeologist I’m working with are very excited with this wonderful find! I have over 100 books to read and document into my files and will be putting a Ninegret book together for everyone – Will take me sometime to do thou – got a lot of research to put together!

I also have my local TV channel that is wanting to do an interview with me (arranged thru a mutual friend) and could be as soon as next week! I do have to admit thou I’m a lil scared will be my 1st TV interview!!!

Will keep you updated!!

DEAR ANCESTORYour tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
