Another limb (branch? root ball?) for the family tree:

I talked to my dad last week. He has so many interesting family stories to tell.

Two new things I learned from him: grandma (his momma) had a daughter who died in a fire. She was very young at the time of her death, maybe even a baby. He wasn't sure.

Also, his great-grandmother (my great-great-grandma) was a woman he referred to as Miss Ferguson. He said she had very light skin, very light eyes, and reddish-brown hair.

Another ancestor with the British/Irish genes in my DNA reveal? Sounds like it.

More interesting is the fact that daddy said they called her Miss Ferguson, never grandma or any endearing term. He said he didn't even know her first name.
