Southern Anthology: Blogging on the Antiquated Plane

Lorem Ipsum

A. G. Sertillanges writes in The Intellectual Life: Its Spirit, Conditions, Methods that a "vocation is not fulfilled by vague reading and a few scattered writings." . Blogging on the Antiquated Plane is offered to give additonal expression to my various interests beyond genealogy: history, philosophy and theology, reading and the great outdoors. It is submitted for your consideration. Comments are welcome!

A quick word is offered here about the links in the banner above and navigation. Colonial Bertie NC directs the reader the family of John and Rebecka Dickinson, the couple from whom the story begins, either directly or tangentially. The Dickinsons and allied families began their trek across the frontiers of the southeast while still colonists under the rule of British Empire. Across the Pond introduces the Owsleys of Gloucestershire and the Plantagenet lines of Dorothea Poyntz. John Owlsey was the rector of Glooston Parish and his son Thomas settled just off the Potomac River. Conneticut Yankees introduces the families of the Great Migration of 1630 who sought John Winthrop's City on a Hill. Old Alabama introduces the early families of the Tensaw who were marked by the Fort Mims Massacre of 1813.
