Today in Family History - 07 Dec

On this Pearl Harbor Day, there are three events to remember in our family history.

First, my grandfather Clark Minard Thompson was born on this day in 1910 in Muskegon, Muskegon, Michigan [1, 2, 3, 4].

Second, my 3rd great-grandparents John Pegoda and Nancy McGraw (Anders line) were married on this day in 1865 in Walker County, Texas [5, 6]. This was John's second marriage.

The third event lives in the more distant past and is undocumented. My 7th great-grandfather Richard Womack, III was reportedly born on this day in 1710. If you have any documentation for Richard, please leave a comment.
