Nicely told.  My grandfather moved the family to Corpus Christi in the early 40s. Built the house they lived in. Added on as the family grew. I loved visiting that place it’s still standing but the shares haven’t been there for a long time.

I remember helping granddaddy transplant tomatoes starts into his garden working in an improvised part of the garage he used as a greenhouse

My MIL is 90...91 in June. Still lives in her home by herself. Her husband Leo passed in 2017. Leo's dad bought the house in '25 or so. Leo bought it from his Mom when "Pop's" died. My wife was born there. When MIL passes that will be the end of the family in the neighborhood. I will have most of the responsibility in wrapping up Kay's estate...which will involve selling the house. That will not be a good day

My mom’s family came over looking for a change of luck around 1723.  Eventually got some cheap land by the Chesapeake bay. No one wanted that land because it could be too wet and was too far from civilization. We still have that land. Lots of people lived and died there.  No one ever threw anything away. Just stored it. The first cabin eventually became a summer kitchen then a storage building then a pool house.  

Awesome we did not get here until 1770s and as far as I know, we moved around a lot.

They settled into central & western New York. A lot of farmhands/farmers for the first few generations. There was one killed in a boiler explosion at a locomotive plant in Schenectady 

We moved from NY to Ohio to Texas to Oregon to Indian Territory to Texas.  My grandfather had his pelvis crushed in a coupler accident as a locomotive mechanic in the 1920s
