Day One – A Visit with Our Cousin

So our first stop was with our cousin — dad’s sister’s daughter. Although our families visited each other regularly when we were growing up, we hadn’t seen her for many years. She and her three dogs (a German shepherd, a lab, and a beagle) welcomed us in.

She is a wealth of information on family history. We helped her fill in some blanks on her family tree, and she gave us a huge printout of Robertson descendants going back to 1700 — our great-great-great-great-great (?) grandfather, Robert Robertson.

She also gave us a Robertson family bible, quite a few really old photographs, and showed us on a map where the Robertson and the Hearn-Catlin cemeteries were in Wicomico County.

It was wonderful to see her.
