You'll be amazed at what you will find in your family tree. "What Fell Out of My Family Tree" consists of seven fascinating stories of ancestors spanning over 1000 years. They range from the true story of Lady Godiva and the Anglo-Saxon King Ethelred "The Unready" to the McFarlands who helped settle the West, and from Adeline "Addie" Atkinson who was a pioneer of women's rights in post-Civil War Virginia and who owned and operated one of Richmond's grandest and most important hotels to the author's father, who was in charge of all entertainment for the tens of thousands of troops preparing for D-Day. He narrowly escaped the fate of hundreds of his fellow soldiers when he collapsed from overwork and was not shipped out with his comrades on the ill-fated U.S.S. Leopoldville, which was torpedoed on the way to Europe and sank with massive loss of life. The book also contains the poignant story of Absalom Hissey, youngest son of a large family of average Americans, most of whose men served in the Union Army in the Civil War. Seriously wounded at Gettysburg, he was killed at the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. It took nearly 150 years for a relative to visit and leave flowers at his grave. Enjoy these true stories. They may inspire you to look for your own roots!
