Move To Michigan Is Complete

My dear Kentucky Kindred family, we have arrived at our destination in Rudyard, Michigan, have moved in (surrounded by boxes) and already feel at home.  This was such a quick move – first came to this area and saw the house that is now our home the last week in January.  Now we are residents – as of March 20th.

Our daughter and two grandchildren came with us.  Her husband wanted them to be in an area with less accounts of the coronavirus.  This is a trying time for all of us, but as our ancestors did in the old days, we will pull together and make it through.  This brings to mind the cholera epidemics of the 1800’s and the Spanish Flu from the turn of the 20th century.  Our ancestors were stronger after those hard times and so will we.

A walk on the property.

I can’t promise how often I will post, and perhaps it will just be a photo or something simple.  All my genealogy books, papers and other information are still packed – somewhere.  But I have a tremendous amount of information saved on my computer.  Perhaps that will do until this world gets back to normal.  Just remember there is always light at the end of the tunnel.  And think how much research you can do from your computer while practicing social distancing!

  7. I am so glad you and family are now in Michigan. Hope you will be safe. With this epidemic, I remember parts of the depression,the Second World War and the polio epidemic as similar occurrences in my life. I also remember we had many happy times of sweet and simple joy – and we survived. I am sure we will all pull together, look after each other and be well. I look forward to your posts and be well.

  8. Interesting. My moving took me from KY to MI then to TN. Your location certainly has you out of the big city potential for coronavirus exposure. All depends on lifestyle regardless of where you are. Best of luck and health in your new location.

  9. Thanks for sharing and inspiring us ! Your right , our ancestors did endure trying times like we are now. I have been thinking about this and feel that they are with us : ) for comfort, strength looking out for us as guardian angels. Welcome to Michigan cousin!
