On This Day Grandpa McCormick ZION Dies 12/26/1863

On this day December 26th 1863 McCormick Zion passes away. He is one of my third great grandfathers
McCormick was born January 22, 1795 in Virginia to John W Sr and Lucy McCormick.
McCormick was married twice, first to Sally Stuart with whom he had Sarah Zion. Sally died young some time before 1818.
McCormick then married Mary Gobble shortly after Sally's death in 1818.
McCormick and Mary had four children, Eliza , Mary, John Henderson ( my ancestor ) and Andrew.
I have copies of historical documents from a family bible where McCormick has recorded his marriages.
They are surely a pleasure to own these copies with our family history regarding McCormick

Merry Christmas to All

Merry Christmas to all of my friends. What a wonderful blessed day we are having today. I am thankful for all I have and pray for those who have troubles or pain in their lives at this time. I am thinking and praying for those who lost their children to tragedy and illness. My heart aches for them.
Be safe this holiday. Grace
