My cousin Sharon, who lives in San Antonio, and I were excited about my first visit to see her in Texas! I made sure to pick the month of April 2016 as I figured the weather would be bearable and I had major surgery scheduled for September 2016 so I wanted to see who I could, while I could. One the “tourist attractions” on my list was visiting the Alamo . While acknowledging the complicated history of The Alamo, it is also part of my My Dad’s side of the family being related to Davy Crockett through marriage. My Dad’s aunt, Janie Sheffey (1897-1925), married Harold Lee Crockett. Both were from Wytheville, VA.
My ancestral history/DNA journey continues to add many wonderful layers and experiences.
