My 1st post

to Hacienda Circle, built in 1949, the home of a motley crew with DNA from England, France, Scotland, Ireland, Africa, Germany and Holland. By boat, wagon, and RR they came west -- speaking English, Gaelic, French, German, and Dutch.  Some were slaves, some owned slaves. Black, white and both, Catholic and Protestant, they settled in then left cities -- Savannah, Philadelphia, Boston, New York City, New Orleans, Cincinnati, San Francisco, Alameda, Berkeley. They left farms in Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. And after all this, we ended up at Hacienda Circle. I am very grateful.
