I am not alone

Some trees these days suffer middle age spread!

          Linda, my opening line was very much tongue in cheek. At least these days I no longer have hollows in my hollows!

      Nancy (comment below) is on the ball, the tree looks like it was encased in a corset for about fifty years!

    Antrim Castle? Looks like I’ve got a bit more research to add to the family genealogy. My aunt (father’s older brother’s wife) was an Antrim descendant here in the U. S. I do know the U. S. bunch was involved in the Revolutionary war, but so far have not found the first arrival here. I wonder if there is a connection. That old tree might just be old enough to know.

        Thanks, Grannymar. Being a history buff, genealogist and generally far too curious and enjoying a good puzzle to solve, finding connections to things is always grand. Now to find that connection.
