Linda Elliott and her first cousin found each other and re-connected their mothers - who were sisters separated by adoption 69 years before. This spurred Linda's interest in family history.
Today she researches her maternal family: the Denton, Eads, Harp & Plumlee families of Tennessee and Kentucky in the late 19th century.
Linda's paternal grandfather was a potato farmer turned professional and personal buyer for Henry Ford. This grandfather raised his family in Michigan - resulting in Linda growing up in the southeastern part of the Mitten State.
In childhood, Linda was close to her paternal grandmother whose family history she would enjoy learning - and who influenced many memories.
