I won't be able to visit much the next couple of days. If you remember, or not, on Saturday we are having some people over that I am excited to meet! The man who built our house was Colonel Sperry and there is a Sperry reunion this weekend and Col Sperry's descendents are going to come and walk through the house he built. It should be fun but I've got much to do to get ready for their visit!
Did I tell you about this strange twist of fate? You may know that I love genealogy and have a genealogy blog that you can access from here. Well, looking through our tree, I noticed my husband has a Mary Sperry that was from this same area. I contacted my new found Sperry friends and asked them and this Mary Sperry is related to Jacob Sperry who built our house, weird isn't it? I *think* her parents were Jacob's GG Grandparents, or something like that, I'll write it down when they come over. Although Nick is only related through marriage, Mary Sperry married into Nick's Dugan line, still it's weird and pretty cool huh?!
