All day yesterday I was playing musical blogger templates so if you happened to drop by during that time, my apologies for the weirdness. It just felt like time for something new. I wish I could change my living room around.
Well now that the ancestors and I are settled in the new digs let's get on with this post shall we.
Did you watch "Who Do You Think You Are?" with Tim McGraw last Friday?
As I was watching I got a little excited when I noticed that he was driving through Big Stone Gap, Virginia because that is where hubby's great-grandparents are from. Then my curiosity was peaked when they started talking about his 6th great-grandfather Isaac Chrisman. I knew that name. I knew that I had seen it somewhere before while doing research on hubby's ancestors.
So Saturday morning you know I hit the computer first thing to do a little investigating. I opened up his family tree file and sure enough, there was Isaac Chrisman. He was hubby's seventh great-grandmother's (Jane/Jean Scott) first husband! About a year after Isaac was killed by Indians, Jane married Nathaniel Hix and their first child was Frances Hix, hubby's sixth great-grandmother. I made this chart showing how they are connected:
Unfortunately I haven't been able to find much of anything on their common ancestor Jane Scott.
If you check out the McGraw Family Album on NBC.com, you can see the documents they used to aid Tim on his journey.
