Mary Childs, who wrote a book of genealogy simply was WRONG.
IN MARY CHILD'S life time, To get fom Va to OHIO & Back Would take longer
than it wold take to Go arond th world TO DAY. HER information was very
well from MOUTH TO EAR TO MOUTH VIA US MAIL ANd hand me downs FROM very
little Edgucated GRANNY AND THAT IS WHY YOU were unable to locate any record to
verify MARY CHILDS STORY,
CUZ the IDEA Tat every thing is RECORDED is the BIGEST BRICK WALL in
GENEALOGY. YOu IN SYRIA & CUZ IN RICHMOND VA in 2013 can talk to each other in
Minutes. WHEN CUZ Mary Childs Wrote Her BIT About the Childs Campbrll's
She very likely Thought that she had Covered the WORLD & as fr as she KNEW
She had done just that, SURE we can go back & retrreve MUCH IFORMATION, BUT
Her information WAS NOT RECORDED. In 23 days I will be 87 years old.
There are Many FACTS That I can relate to YOU to Day that will be Silenced The
MOMENT that I Stop Breathing, CUZ There ARE Many FACTS that have not been
AND THEY NEVER WILL BE
EXAMPLE: I drove a Truck Between 31/2 & 4 Million Miles in 45 Years
Today I can Truthfuly relate Many facts. I have a Pic of me sitting on the
Sign of TEXAS, SURE That is a record of the Fact that CUZ AT WAS IN THE
STATE of Texas: BUT It does not Show that CUZ AT WAS beside of OLD ROUTE 66
at the Line of TEXAS & OKLA, BUT NOW If one of my Descendants Looks at te
PIC Of me Siting beside the SIGHN of OKLA one could very well ASUME that I
was at The LINE OF OKLA & TEX.
I would rather say that I have not seen a Record of CUZ Mary Childs Story
Posted in any Officcal Records Than to say that CUZ Mary Childs WAS WRONG??
COUSINS, There is going to be MILLIONS of wrds used BY us that will not
SHOW UP in Offical RECORDS. COURSE by the LIKE of Attention that OUR
Youngesters are Showing in Genealogy, IT is very Likely that if it is not Recorded
IT Did not happen. QUESTION? HOW many of My Campbell Cousins Remember
your Grand PAS & Granns have told YOU a Bit About OUR OLD FOLKS???
