Genealogy Blog Party : Time Travel Adventure
Elizabeth over at Little Bytes Of Life has opened up a Time Travel Blog Party.
How can I pick 1 or even 2 ancestors to visit in my time travel adventure ?
I have so many questions for my ancestors.
Some questions are difficult to ask. So many secrets, so many rumors out there.
Was one of my great uncles murdered for money or was it really an accidental drowning?
Why did one of my great grandmothers not marry the father of her child. What happened to
him and will I ever find the real Andrew. Did her parents really disown her and did she cut
them out of her life.
I would love to meet my great great grandpa John Lockwood and hear his stories and
struggles during the civil war as an enlisted man.
What decision made him want to sign up?
I never physically met my grandmother Alta but I do believe she visits me in my dreams. I
just want to hold her hand and listen to her stories.
I would give anything to sit down with my grandmother Grace and share a ginger ale and
cookie. I have so many unanswered questions. I wish had spent more time with her in her
last years. I was just to busy being me to give her the time she deserved.
I will pick one ancestor to visit in my time travel adventure.
I am going back to visit my 5th great grandfather Joseph Louis Cheuvront
Joseph Louis Cheuvront was born on February 2, 1757, in Strasbourg, Alsace, France. He married Elizabeth Ellsworth and they had 11 children together. He then married Sarah Bollen and they had four children together. He died on August 12, 1832, in Harrison County, West Virginia, having lived a long life of 75 years, and was buried there. Joseph was in the revolutionary war and was a preacher man.
My questions for him are
Tell me about your parents and their parents and your siblings.
Why did you come to the united states was it really about religion and was there any royalty connections with your parents?
Tell me stories about the adventures you had during the revolutionary war. Did you see battle or were you a minister to the troops?
What was happening with your family members life that caused you to write that letter scolding them and their behavior shortly before your death?
I would not tell him I was from the future since I may be accused of witchcraft.
