If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people. – Thich Nhat Hanh
My curiosity about family began while I was in college. To know where I was going I needed to know where I’d been! Knowing so much about my ancestors now gives me a real sense of belonging. And my research nurtured a genuine love of history, and place. The link to my own research is HERE(Click):
The Hutson line, from Dr. Henry Woodward, the explorer, is also now documented at First Families of South Carolina 1670-1700, in Charleston, South Carolina. I am indebted to cousin Michael Jenkins Hutson, of El Paso, Texas, Hutson historian extraordinaire, who helped with the necessary supporting documents. If you are interested in membership at First Families, contact them via snail mail (no website!) at PO Box 21328, Charleston, South Carolina 29413-2564.
