The cabinet above belonged to my Great-grandmother Moore; it is now in the possession of my sister. Our grandchildren are now able to read some of the highlights of day. The notations are written on the inside of the two top doors. (pictures two and three)
My mother has traced by pencil what she could read, so parts are again legible. Most of the names at the top were siblings who were children of John and Melvina. Joking a bit but I could make them poor victims who couldn’t buy paper, but I think that is not true. I’m guessing they bought the cabinet when it was new.
Then my mom and her siblings names are scattered. Some of the younger ones note their ages.
Not exactly high tech, but if I had to prove something that is inscribed here, it would probably stand up in court with more believability than a record in google!
At some period, I had to get in on the act so my married name is on the left near the bottom. I was a tag-along. Tag-along or not I wanted to get in on this family tree someplace. There are folks here who could teach me something.
I believe I will meet some of these ancestors of mine in the great beyond – in the sky, Lord, in the sky. ——
