So I’m even farther behind than before, loss in my personal life has put me in a bit of a depression but I’m determined to finish this on time (goals, it’s all about goals, right?).
Week 6: My Favorite Name
So the prompt for Week 6 was my favorite name, and when I began looking into my ancestor’s favorite name I began looking really hard for some glamorous name, but nothing was saying “pick me, pick me”.
But then I realized I was looking too hard, that my favorite ancestor name was so obvious, I can’t believe it didn’t jump up off the screen: George Washington Morgart.
George was my great-great-grandfather on my father’s mothers side of the family. His name I love because I am a girl who was born on George Washington’s birthday, so ever since I can remember he has been my hero, so when I learned I had a great-great grandfather named after him, I was ticked pink.
From reading his obituary he seemed to be a truly nice and respected member of the community:
I’m still in the early stages of my search and at this time do not have as much information about George that I wish. But as I find out information about him, I’ll update this post.
