Happened in Elkton

He had been working in Lyon County, part of a road construction crew. Now he found himself headed into the army during the Korean Conflict.

She wanted to move away from Lyon County. 

Together they planned a life after the army that would take them to different towns, going to wherever he would be able to find work.  She was excited at the prospect. Since he was always valued for his "hard work", I imagine he was proud to be able to provide for her. The first step in their plan is to get married.

They obtained their marriage license in Lyon County, and I don't know what their actual plans for a wedding were.  What I do know is that........

No Place Like (the Hayden) Home

Old Kuttawa Home
Several weeks ago, someone posted a picture of the Hayden family on Facebook (Randy Armstrong).  Our cousin, Clyde Shelley, messaged me about the picture and while I thought I had a better copy of the picture that had been posted, I hadn't found it until today.

It's About Time!

No posts since 2011!?  Had to ask myself what I've been doing since then. In a single statement: life as it was, is no more.  The changes haven't all been easy, but after (most) of the dust settled, I can say that all the changes are good.  

In the 4 years since my last post, I have become a member of the DAR with three documented ancestors approved and am actively working on two more.  It is the findings I am collecting during the search for "proofs" that has prompted me to reinstate this blog.

I need a place to share with all of you in such a way that you can pick and choose the information that is of most interest to you.  So, "DenneyGirls" is active once again - after all, it's about TIME! :)
