I started reading Ulysses S. Grants autobiography. He wrote it in 1885 135 years ago. At the time it was the definitive history of the Civil War and his presidency. He had an extraordinary life from his West Point career all the way through the Civil War and eight years as president
But the first chapter maps out his ancestry. And on his fathers side it goes back to the 1600’s. So it occurred to me I should do that here in my Visiting of My Life. Put the ancestry down as I know it now. Unfortunately I can’t go back that far, really just to my grandparents. I may have written about this earlier but let me do it again just for repetition sake.
