Part 69r - Pygmy Goats - Great-Grandaunt Agnes Robertson Is Two Months Old

21 September 2009

Afternoon,

Got my sunshine this morning. We trimmed and cut and chopped excess growth down the boardwalk and worked half-way down the side of the house. I keep forgetting, after living in Florida for 28 years, that under- and over-growth in two months in the full of the summer has the propensity of taking over completely... And if you hear that we've adopted a couple of pygmy goats it's cause I've heard that they are they prime way of getting rid of the super-growing four-inches-a-day kudzu vines!!!

Following up from Part 68r, excluding the the Baptismal Registration I hope to find in microfilm FHL[1068908], great-grandaunt Agnes Robertson's name appears in the 1841 Census. This first Census, includes the Robertson family, and great-grandaunt Agnes at all of 2 months old. Great-great-grandfather John was an Iron moulder and as the entry indicates he was born in Scotland. Here's my first connection outside of England.

That's all for this posting. The next one is sort of a side-trip as I ask the question "What pray tell is an "Iron Moulder""?

Stay tuned...
