Hello Susanne, I love your costume. It sounds like great fun portraying historical characters. Do you always dress up as the character you are portraying and where do you get your costumes? I am dressing up in as a Banshee or Death Fairy for a Halloween storytelling event. Emma in Norway
Well it sounds like you have some great stories to tell about your wife's side of the family . . . stories that need to be told so these interesting people can be remembered. I'm determined to get my story out there about my "interesting" ancestors. Take care, Suzanne
I talked to Carol and she said of what she remembers of her Mother's research on William Snow, is that he was some cousin from an earlier ancestor of Lorenzo's. She thought she remembered that he came to Utah with some of the first wave of immigrants. Married to Ann Rogers sometime after that. We actually visited the farm near Amroth in Wales that Ann's family came from and found the old foundations along with several of the features in her diary. The're an interesting bunch, Carol had a great aunt that danced with one of the Hole-in-the-Wall gang at a community dance in Monticello. Many of them still farm and work there through out Monticello, Bicknell and Blanding, the area that William was sent to colonize.
It was great to come by the chapter meeting and get reaquainted with everyone. I hope my wife and I can make next month's meeting. I think she told me her family in Monticello, and Bicknell in southern Utah are descended from William Snow a brother of Lorenzo's, married to Ann Rogers of Pembrookshire. I put that Railroad Bishop story on my page under the blogs.
Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm glad to be part of your site. "Professional storyteller" could be a great topic of discussion. I consider myself a professional for several reasons, including the fact I am paid for many of my performances; however, I do not make my living as a storyteller. I hope this site is open for all variations of "professional" storytellers. Hugs, Suzanne
