TOM & JANE CHRISTIAN FAMILY

Tom's and Jane's property in GREENBRIER COUNTY
About 1947, Aunt Jane's daughter, Geraldine, visited us in Rising Sun. That was the very first contact I had had with my Aunt Jane's family. The following year, I visited my Aunt Jane in Cordovia,Greenbrier Co. W.Va. and was told of the Foguses across the river. I was dating Robert Baughman at the time, so it did have some significance. The Foguses were his mother's people, who lived just across the river from my mother's people. Through the years, I didn't think much of it, and really wasn't that interested. At a young age, one lives in the "here and now". You will hear more of the Foguses, who became my in-laws,in another place.

Hi Marian,

How are things up your way? We are doing good here in WV. I was on the site a bit this morning and looked around some. Yes, I can put pictures of the house on for you but it will have to wait until Monday, I was home when I got the message about the site but am at Mom's not, I just got this computer setup online so don't have much on it, I guess if I had the site address I could go ahead, I search to see if I can get on from here after I send this. Judy has to work this evening so I'll be here. The C.B. club is having a square dance tonight so I'll probably stay with Mom tonight, Judy will not get off until 10pm and will probably go straight to her Mom's and not come to the dance. Lottie was in the hospital this week, she has a blood clot in her leg, Judy's Sister, her Son and Judy's Brother are in to see her. Lottie turned 98 in March and Judy's other grandmom Jocey McMillion turned 97 today. Do you know anything about Frank Sr., he use to come up pretty often but has not been up for years, I tried calling him when I got married but the number was no longer a working number, I guess they changed the area code. Well, you take care and be good, I will get the pictures up for you as soon as I can. God bless.
Calvin and Judy
