This hymn was written by my husand's 7th Great Grandfather. I put together this image.

No worries.

That's a nice hymn.

"7th Great Grandfather?" As in Great-Great-Great... 7x?"

If so, that's a loooooong time ago!

If anyone is curious about the difference of a week between Western and Eastern Easter, Kelly posted a Wikipedia entry about that on her blog.

(the dates they actually coincided a year or two ago)

Yes, as in Great Great Great + ...was written in the mid 1800s.

I just got an email from Douglass...his blog is down...don't know why he couldn't tell you in is...was only up for two weeks.

I would think seven generations goes beyond the mid-Nineteenth Century and into the 18th...

hee hee...I was counting total generations from my kids rather than "greats" (bows head)

It's 3rd great...

You are right.

So what has this got to do with the topic of this blog entry...nothing....oh well.
