|I love this picture of Danny's mother Marie (Jones) Ricketts standing on a barrel. When I first
knew her, she was in her sixties and had given up barrel-standing long ago. But she still
had that playfulness with a cheerful, friendly spirit all the way up to when she moved to
Family history - aka Genealogy - enriches our lives. We see a new dimension of ourselves in
our ancestors. The journey into our pasts is even more enchanting when we have pictures.
Danny and I hope you enjoy our Family History section. Right now it is full of Danny's
ancestors - the Ricketts and Jones families that include the Mills, Pruett, Driskill and other
families - and his cousins and our kids and their families. Sometime in the not too distant
future, I hope to include my family of Barbour and Gusler, plus Shelhorse, Sigmon, Quinn
and other families.
If you are "kin" and your information and/or pictures should be included on this website,
please let us know.
