Week 49 (December 3-9) – Holidays. What ancestor do the holidays put you in mind of?
I did pick my 2nd great grandfather Thomas Duke Harrison for Week 42 of this year's challenge but I don't really see any reason why I can't choose him again especially since his birthday fell on Christmas Day. Plus I am running short on time in regards to getting caught up on these prompts before the New Year. It's 5:26 pm EST as of this writing so time is a ticking. (Smile) According to Thomas's death certificate he was born on Christmas Day. The year he was born was most likely around 1856 based on what was listed on an early marriage record for him.
I've featured my 2nd great grandfather quite often on this blog.
Here are some past posts that highlight his life:
Rev. Thomas Duke Harrison -- Part one.
Rev. Thomas Duke Harrison--Part two.
