More About Me:
I'm married with one daughter, Kristin Marie .One is more than enough to keep up with. I don't know what I'd do with 2 teenagers!!!! I like to read mysteries, swim, boat, hike, used to go camping, used to paint, gardening & genealogy. I usually read while my husband is fishing. I'm a Respiratory Therapist in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. . My 2 aunts on my father's side wrote a book "Fox Cousin by the Dozens" in the late 1970's. When I was younger I wasn't really interested in this. Along with my friend, I joined Ancestry.com and began loading the info. from my aunt's book. I soon got side-tracked on my mother's side. Mom & the rest of the family only had scattered bits & pieces of info. I decided to trace her tree also. Ran into a brick wall with the Hargadons, McIlvaines & Lorenzs. I work on the trees almost everyday I have off now. Think I have alittle OCD. The searches never end. As soon as I think I'm done, something else pops up. Thomas Hargadon & Mary Lawrence also had a son Lawrence Joseph Hargadon. Lawrence had a daughter Viola Kay. who did quite a bit of research. I've been unable to contact her. She may be gone by now.
