Just one of the stories I've learned over the years is about when my family came to this country.  

THE STORY OF MOLLIE O'CONNOR

My grandfather's great, great grandmother, Mollie O'Connor, born around 1750 in County Cork, Ireland, was kidnapped by pirates from a convent to be indented to an inn in South Carolina. During the journey Mollie became very sick. Because she was deemed too sick to keep, it was decided she would be thrown overboard.. But fate intervened and Charles Fox (from South Carolina) who would later take Mollie as his wife, found her to be “so beautiful and so honest” that he stepped in to rescue her. This is the story repeated to my brother, sisters and myself, by my mother, on several occasions, and later appearing in the Parnell-Camp Genealogy and Records compiled by the Alabama side of our family.

I did some research last summer and I found out that I'm a direct descendant from the Rurik dynasty and that one of my cousins is Louis XIV. How crazy is that?

So basically, I'm the heir to the throne of Russia. Bow down bitches.

Mom's side - Goes all the way back to William the Conqueror and possibly before that to the Viking raids. Dad's side- As far back as we could possibly go were to the Dutch Mennonites. DeWard meant "The Guardians" It's original name was De Voogd.
