Wahoo House?

My mind seems pretty stuck in old Kentucky…the synchronicities keep drawing me to something? I’m not sure what I am looking for right now? I have never had much luck researching this branch of the family tree. Today I went down to the basement and pulled out my box of research. In that box I found a generic list of questions that I had asked both grandmothers. I looked over the answers and decided to go with an area we had discussed more than once. Stinking Creek sticks out as a name and it was part of the Roaring Fork in Knox County Kentucky. My answer list stated that my grandmother lived in Roaring Fork longer than anywhere else in her childhood so that’s what I put in the search bar.

I’m still in shock with what popped up!!! It’s always exciting to find something real in the genealogy world! It turns out a man named Dwight D Warren made a hand drawn map of Roaring Fork on Stinking Creek in Knox County Kentucky. This a goldmine to me! I zoomed in on the important part….

There it is…the house my grandmother grew up in, the one her father built. I had to look up “wahoo” and it seems to be a type of elm tree, a winged elm? I also have in my notes that my grandmother was friends with a Sarah and Lindy Leath who are definitely neighbors according to this map. The fact that I found this on my first search has blown my mind for most of the day! I wish I had someone to share my excitement with…the Girl doesn’t care and my brothers have never seemed too interested so I have to be excited by myself. My grandmother would have been over the moon with excitement!!

It was pretty warm today and at dusk the Girl and I sat on the back porch and listened to the beginning of Front Range Radio. I left the back door open while we were out there. She didn’t like that too much, she was concerned with bugs. I told her that it would be fine, there weren’t any interior lights on and we were sitting right there. Europeans don’t have screens on their windows and they live…we were just letting some heat out of the kitchen for thirty minutes. It did help and the house cooled off some, I am not ready to turn the air on just yet.

I went to PT’s for breakfast this morning, it was so nice to see everyone again. We sat outside on the patio and there were seven of us…all with in the bullshit guidelines. I am the only one of the group that is against the masks and everything else that goes with that statement. I didn’t say anything, I just observed. I still find it shocking that so many people don’t question and just follow. I’m not built that way, never have been. I was grateful for the nice weather and it was good to see PT in person. I miss my friend.

The Girl and I did a tiny bit of running around and then we were home for the day. I don’t get too many days where I just chill but today was one of them. I did a little genealogy “digging” but found nothing other than my big find from the first search. I did send out an email with some inquiries but that was about it. I still think I need to physically go there to do the research. I guess we will see….Zia

      Thanks, it was exciting! I enjoyed your show and Interview Sunday. It was funny….I just said “it’s awfully country tonight” Right before you said something like that and changed it up to some blues. Talk about timing! I hope you have a great week!!

    BINGO! DITTO! I have yet to wear a mask and IF when my hair salon finally opens (I have not had my hair done since Feb.) I am told I must wear a mask, I plan on cutting a hole out where my mouth and nose are so I can BREATHE! These masks are actually detrimental to your health. I could go on and on about what is happening, but I don’t want to get kicked off of WP. Just know I am in your corner!
    Short story just to show you the degree of how people have turned into zombies …. Walking down a narrow road in a park I saw a car parked, which was unusual. I then saw an older woman with two young kids. When they saw me way off in the distance they ran as fast as they could and dove into the car. When I passed that car, the woman in the driver’s seat was looking straight ahead refusing to look at me and the two young kids were cowering in the back on the floorboards. I kid you not. The damage this fiasco has done! Or should I say what people have allowed this fiasco to do to them.
    Anyways ….. very cool you are doing a family tree. I’ve never gotten into that. I’m smiling to know you are having success with yours.
    Sending you much love and mucho hugs!!! Amy who is right now grinning knowing what I know about you! xoxoxoxo

      You should see the people trying on glasses with the mask on. There is no way to do that successfully. Usually I just tell them “it’s okay to pull it down under your nose, you don’t have to suppress your immunity on my behalf.” Then you have the guy with the bandana around his face like in a western complaining about all of the people in the greenhouse without a mask. I believe his words were “come on people, you’re just going to bring it back!” I could give you more examples but what’s the point? Either you buy it…or you don’t? I don’t…you don’t, and I am finding more and more of us who don’t. I am alarmed at the number of people who are buying it. Some people won’t even make eye contact anymore, this is crazy! Sadly you can’t make people think for themselves. Thank you Amy for your encouraging words…it’s rough out there! Thankfully I have lots of wonderful things to distract myself from the “zombies” Have a beautiful week my friend, sending fierce hugs your way!!! xoxo

      • Zia, I’ve been “out there” all along and I agree it is shocking, still to this day, how some people are acting. If looks could kill, I’d be dead, all because I dared not to wear a mask. Yesterday I was vacillating between sobs and anger because of the NYS “guidelines” of how salons will be when they are open. No they still are not open here when the majority of the other states are open. I am ready to shave my head. It’s been THREE months since my hair was done! Anyways, what I saw horrified me which was straight out of a sci-fi horror movie. I wrote the owner of my salon and did not spare words. I will NOT go to a salon with conditions so horrifying that they will send me into a panic. I couldn’t bookmark that site to show you what I saw cuz it is on IS. If you are interested, use Startpage.com as your search engine and type in “New York State hair salons” and look for the guidelines from IS. It will make you want to scream. In response to my email, the owner wrote and agreed with me that enough is enough and let us get back to business! She told me I will be on the schedule for my stylist next week. I better be!
        Here are some links that should encourage you. A BIG law firm locally is suing Cuomo for acting unconstitutionally:

        https://www.investigativepost.org/2020/05/16/lawsuit-challenges-cuomos-covid-19-orders/

        And the protests of TRUTH have begun! It took me a while to figure out and to find out what is really happening but when I did, I realized globally we have been betrayed at our deepest levels. Hence, my anger and the FACT that my constitutional rights have been taken from me. I’m so fired up over this that I am willing to fight for my freedom. Zia, I’ve never felt like this in my life. Never. And I firmly believe many more are coming to this point.

        To go for months with no proof to back up what my Inner Guidance has been telling me was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. Even my own husband still to this day does not believe me despite me being an RN and educated in medicine. When you look at the chart in the second link, which is the TRUTH, hold on. We as a world have been so duped and today the condition this nation is in and this world is in, I don’t know if we will recover. Justice must come from this! As is very evident, I am so upset how we as a people have been treated. As I told my husband, when these sheeple find out that this virus was an ordinary flue virus, their anger will ignite. Or perhaps not. Perhaps still be so dumbed down and blind, they will insist that the “new” truth are lies.
        Sending huge huge hugs!!! Hang tough and stay strong! We shall overcome!! xo

          Thanks for this information, I will pass it on to others. I 100% agree with all of this being an unconstitutional abuse of power! Too bad the sheeples don’t see it, and every day I am surprised to find more of them. How can they not see? What makes you and I different? Why can wee see the the horse hooey while others go around judging us for not wearing a mask? I still only wear it when it’s mandatory and even then…it’s half assed. I wish I could forward you a link from on of Dr Eric Nepute’s videos, he is usually spot on and has been calling bullshit for a while now. The ones I found were on Facebook. He tells a great tale about a wild pig that closely relates to the government paying people stay home.
          https://youtu.be/6j6yQnU8KsI Rev Danny Jones trounces the New World Order on YouTube is a big eye opener!!! You know I don’t support any organized religion but this video has been fact checked by a friends bother and most of what he says rings true. Anything I find that sings our song…I will send you the link. Stay strong my beautiful friend xoxo

          • Zia, I watched the video. And it is exactly in line with my own “speculations” where all this is going. I cannot dwell on this subject matter for long, for it does have dire consequences. I must and I will keep my head in the Natural world.
            I have a new post up which is causing quite a stir among some. It was not meant to stir up trouble yet I am getting unfollowed due to what is contained on this post. Honey, I can only handle so much and this constant push by me to stand on TRUTH wears at me. I probably won’t post again for a while. The hatred and fear that is out there shocks me. People are SO blind and I just don’t get it. No matter the proof that is presented to them, they only believe one thing and one thing only. Please read my new post when you get the chance. What has some in uproars are the links I provided. Oh, did you know the CDC recanted their original statement how this virus can live up to 3 days on surfaces and now says it is highly unlikely that anyone can get the virus from surfaces? GASP! Really? Meanwhile millions of people now have OCD, acute terror, depression, anxiety and are committing suicide all because of this invisible enemy is ready to kill them AND because of how we have become ruled under military law. It’s too much for me some days. I can FEEL the prison.
            Much LOVE to you, dear friend. Much love!! xoxoxo

            • dragonflyzia says:

              I couldn’t find this post? Was it deleted? Did I wait too long? So much has happened since then…these are crazy times! Just know that I support you 100% and I will always stand by you my friend. Stay strong xoxoxo

            • dragonflyzia says:

              I did find the post…I was distracted by the beautiful pictures. I think your post was strong but subtle and I can’t believe people unfollowed you because of your opinion…that’s just crazy!!! Everything you shared was factual and eye opening and I am grateful to you for sharing it! You are a beautiful soul and I consider myself lucky that our paths have crossed. As a fellow “sensitive” person, I understand how this is hurting you. I hope that you are able to shake this off while sticking to your guns. Stay strong my friend…holding space and sending love your way. xoxoxo

          Every state is different. We have lots of people venturing over from PA to get haircuts since they still can’t get then over there. There was even a brief period when they weren’t selling alcohol to anyone with a PA license because PA closed their liquor stores. I do appreciate a nice glass of dry red wine after work but it’s not essential. I can go on and on but I know you know what I mean. Thanks for the info, I appreciate everything that I can get and share. Have a great night! xoxo

        • dragonflyzia says:

          Ridiculous!!! I have been able to hold out so far…my roots are 1 year and 2 months old, and I have cut my own bangs. My hair is in desperate need of a shape up though so I’m not sure how much longer I will be able to hold out. Stay strong my friend and good luck!!!
