Yesterday was one of those days when you get a surprise and you are just floored and excited all at the same time. I was having my morning coffee and checking into Facebook, reading my news feed when I noticed I had a new friend request. I didn't recognize the name but noticed we had a friend in common and they were from North Carolina so I accepted his request. A couple of minutes go by and then. Bam! There it was. I gasped and my hand went to cover my mouth as I stared in awe at two wonderful faces. Faces I've waited so long to see and there they were. There they were!
These ladies were two of the children of David Sampson and Mary Jane Mitchell Sampson. This is how I am connected to them. My 2nd great grandmother Rosa Mitchell Jones was their mother's sister. I have to send out a huge thanks to a gentleman by the name of Michael Grushinski who had this wonderful picture of my 1st cousins 3x removed. Thank you for sharing your memories of them with me. This picture was taken on the family land sometime during the 1960's
You know I can't stop smiling!
