Something neat from my Ogle research. If anyone is searching for proof of a "colorful" character in our heritage, I think that person might be Daniel Ogle. Here is a very interesting document regarding the reason he came to Texas... there are similar documents from his brother, interestingly enough named, Ben R. Ogles (yes, his signature clearly has an S on the end!) I guess the two of them were into some bootlegging over there in Georgia. As the document states, he and his family had already moved to Texas and he was arrested there and returned for sentencing, so I'm still searching for those arrest records for more details! Until then, enjoy this one!

As I promised a cousin recently, I WILL post something new each week related to our family history. There are so many things that are interesting to me that I doubt anyone even knows that I have over here. True treasures waiting to be shared. If you enjoy seeing these things, please write me a comment so I know someone out there is reading this! This is an article written about my Grandmother, Blanche Goodwin Granath in 1956. If any of you out there have an original of the photograph used in this article, I would love to have a copy or jpeg of it, because I haven't ever seen the original. Enjoy!
