…and suffering from Monday Madness

January 18, 2010

I am going batty, completely, unadultratedly (yes, I made that word up) flippin’ batty. I’ve decided to devote my free time this week to working on Carson family history….and I can’t find anything on Pearl Ann (White) Carson (mother to my project, Knowlton Carson)…

It shouldn’t surprise me that I can’t find any mention of her past about 1925. After speaking with Knowlton’s youngest daughter (Pearl’s Grandaughter), I found out that Pearl and William Edmond Carson divorced while their only child Knowlton was away at college. I’m hoping that another interview with the granddaughter might yield some more clues because I have no idea if Pearl remarried or if she went back to her maiden name. It’s like she dropped of of the face of the earth after 1925.

It’s probably a testament to my noobnishness (wow, a totally modern computer geekish thing for me to say) that I haven’t been able to research this further….I’ll keep plugging away at it…

These are the reasons I wade in the gene pool. I want them to know where they come from and to have a sense of pride about those that have come forward and paved the way for the greatness that they will have in their lives.

I went to Eastlawn Cemetery over the weekend searching for pictures for Find a Grave and I found this stone on my way out. What captured my attention was that the gentleman was a member of the 42nd Rainbow Division in WWII. So was the subject of my project Knowleton Carson. I haven’t had the opportunity to do any research on this person yet but it it just captured my attention.
