my great grand parents
Hi my name is Jackie. I watched finding my roots on pbs on june 10, 2012 and was so amazed with the results of the two men that discovered their roots thanks to the show. I have always been curious about my paternal grand father simply because I knew nothing of his parents. I do remember when i was a girl grandaddy would proudly ride around with his caucasian sisters in his wagon. Yes his wagon. his name was Cephus Bright he married Sara Reid Bright to whom my father Charles Edwin Bright and his 9 siblings were born. The youngest Aunt Sarah is the only one left. Just really curious of where I come from. My father is deceased and i didnt get a chance to discuss this with him , if he even knew this information. My nephews fiancees mother died in a car wreck tonight june 10,2012, which saddened me and made me realize when my time comes what will any of my 9 children know beyond me and their father who was adopted and don’t even know anything about his own parents except their supposed names. He has a twin brother and supposedly several other siblings who they know nothing about except for each other. Two families historys in question. Would love to know where to start other than internet. Sincerely with much gratitude Jacqueline Bright Drew. I probably shoould have mentioned my 12 siblings. The same situation exist on my mothers side , I know my grandfather but not much of his parents. Some of my older siblings may know more than I but am really more interested in my paternal grandfathers parents at this time. I f you can help it would be highly appreciated. I know granddaddy Cephus Bright was born in 1890 and died in 1985.
