Mom is reading a book I picked up last Saturday in Shippensburg, PA and on her way to her bedroom she said I have some some things for you to look up, I said okay. She will put stickies on the spots. Then she says “my grandma (Clara Marsh Davis) always talked about the past, never about the future. She always told us her dad (George Marsh) was a slave, he married Mary Catherine Goins, she was free, the white man killed George’s father, he was only 4 yrs old (1838). Grandma always told of the Davis family story too, William was one of three kids of the slave women and the Davis plantation owner” …the door closes.
I wonder what she read or heard on tv that sparked that to come out. She must of heard some whispering going on…I love these moments and can’t wait for the next one to come. Mom is a healthy 85 year old. We have to be in tuned with the whispers, you never know when they will come. Be ready to hear them. I believe our ancestors are guiding us to tell the stories, I feel very much chosen to do the family research. Hear your whispers! #blessed
