Looking for:
I know almost nothing about this branch. It's one of the newest discoveries on my tree, so I already have more than I need at the moment. It's also so far back there that it can wait a little longer before I start to work on it.

Looks like he was trying to compete with his granddaughter's husband. Still, didn't even come close… ;)

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
