I created this blog to share stories and information about my maternal ancestors from Wilkes County, North Carolina. My mother, grandmother, and other relatives shared many family stories with me. As I recall these stories, I will share my journey to find the truth, as well as genealogy tips I learn.

Courting Miss Nora - February 9, 1919 - "Am real anxious to hear from you."
Tom hasn't gotten any mail from home since he left the U.S. on July 31, 1918, over 6 months ago. He doesn't know if his brother John (also serving in the U.S. AEF in Europe) is safe or not. He sent this postcard to Nora from the Army hospital at Camp Lee, N.J.
