VoyForums Announcement: Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor of love since 1997.

We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Amazing! Her father Mose was born in 1846, was first a Confederate and then a Union soldier, became her father at age 84, and died in 1938 at age 92. An era has truly ended! (NT)egee33Tuesday, June 02, 07:04:49pm
