February 8 Meeting and Program

Join us at 7:00 at the Church of the Hills in Evergreen.

Member Bonnie Scudder will discuss the genealogy research that she did in writing her book “The Secrets of Elk Creek”.   MGS member Deborah Darnell will also relate her work with Bonnie on the research they did on the families that owned the property that is now Staunton State Park.

An example was learning specific information about the Staunton family. We still are not sure of Dr. Rachael Staunton’s date of birth. Census records do not agree, so I’m still searching. Deborah connected with descendants of John E. Denver (not the singer) who homesteaded 520 acres, which he gave to the Stauntons. It is part of Staunton State Park, now.

Bonnie’s book will be available for purchase at the meeting.  The cost is $20.00.
