Ever since I was a child, I have been interested in family connections. This eventually leads one to learning history as well. However my sons still do not make the connections. That is why I have gathered Genealogy. Hopefully, a great-grand daughter will continue a Quest for Family history.

ETTA'S FAVOURITE POEMS are "DESIDERATE" and "IF"
GO PLACIDLY amid the noise & haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly & clearly; & listen to others, even the dull & ignorant; They too have their story. Avoid loud & aggressive persons, They are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain & bitter; For always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; It is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; For in the face of all aridity & disenchantment It is perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, Gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit To shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue & loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, No less than the trees and the stars; You have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with GOD, whatever you conceive HIM to be, & whatever your labors & aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery & broken dreams, It is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy. (Found in Old Saint Paul's Church, Baltimore, U.S.A. Dated 1692) IF If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs & blaming it on you. If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait & not be tired by waiting Or being lied about, don't deal in lies, Or being hated, don't give way to hating, And yet don't look too good nor talk too wise; If you can dream - and not make dreams your master; If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two importors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you have your life to broken, And stoop & build 'em up with worn-out tools; If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, & start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart & nerve & sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!" If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth & everything that's in it, And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son! by RUDYARD KIPLING
