So with a deep breath I hit DELETE.
Then to console myself , I decided to dig around a bit with one of my favorites, Hot Grandma Elizabeth. I found her Wild Child Malinda mentioined in an old Rootsweb list and began to read about her husbands and children and then----OH NO!!! The writer suggested that Malinda was the granddaughter of Lewis Wilburn. Now I am sure Lewis was a great guy, he was the brother of Stephen Wilburn , the grandpa I have listed. The problem with this Lewis theory is that, if true, I will lose my beloved Wallen/ Walling connection!!!!! I have spent hours reading about the Longhunters and their adventures. I have studied the Salem Witch Trials, and poured thru pages of early New England Puritan history. Now to possibly lose that whole line!!!!!!.
So I pushed myself away from the computer last night, with a very Scarlett O'Hara attitude of "I'll think about that tomorrow".
This morning I turned to Morning Wallen, sad that I could lose her wonderful history. I looked at the picture I had attached to her not really sure what that was, though I thought it was a page from the marriage records book. When I brought it up on screen -Lo and Behold- it was a page from a diary dated 1850 listing births of her, Stephen, and their children including Hot Grandma Elizabeth!
