BITTMANN and DAVIS Family Genealogy
Civil War veterans,
Revolutionary War soldiers,
early wild west pioneers,
Quakers who travelled to the U.S. with William Penn,
three Mayflower pilgrims,
farmers, lawyers, wine-growers,
carpenters, homemakers, sailors,
stonecutters, shopkeepers, and religious independents.
Regular people, but this is their exceptional story.
A work in progress, our family history.
To not know what happened
before you were born
is to remain a child forever.

For what is the worth of human life,
unless it be woven
into the life of our ancestors
by the records of history?

- Cicero

    A Bridge Across Time

    She calls to me from long ago;
    Through sunlit skies; through drifts of snow.
    In clouds that dance upon the sea
    I call to her and she to me.

    So real was she. She laughed. She cried.
    She loved; she lost. She lived; she died.
    She hoped and dreamed; so real was she.
    She lived a life that I may be.

    The blood through which my veins does flow
    is the same as hers from long ago.
    So it will be that when I'm gone
    in an unborn child it will flow on.

    I'll live my life and when it's done
    I'll live again in those to come
    For I'm a bridge from she to me;
    From those that were to those to be.
