I have been tinkering and reading a little bit of history about my family.
I have discovered a few things thus far.
My latest is a relative from back in 1864. Better yet, the first words written in verse. A poet! Now, I can see where I developed my passion for poetry.
Through research, I discovered a journal written by William Dragoo . He was from Auburn , IN . The amazing thing besides reading the journal was the first few lines HE WAS A POET . Here I enjoy writing poetry and so did a family member in 1864. The poem is with no title . It reads;
Remember me when this you see
Though absent from your sight
And I will do the same by you
