    I am the grand daughter of John and Cora Sampson. So many wonderful memories of my grandparents. I thank God for the legacy they left behind. I am instilling that same legacy in my kids and grandkids. I am proud to be a part of a family with such a heritage. Many heartfelt memories as I think of the journey. I am happy to still be on this journey with Him as my shepherd!

        I am the granddaughter of Brodie Sampson and came across site while researching my family tree. Would u be willing to share any information you have in the family?

      • I have posted (in summary form, of course) just about everything I have on Adam Artis and his children, as well as his siblings and likely cousins. Please search the blog for “Artis” to pull up these posts. I’m happy to answer any specific questions you might have after you read them. Thanks!

    I do have some of my grandmother. However, I knew very little about her mom and dad but have always been interested in learning more about my family heritage. I am at work and just stumble somehow across this today as I was searching my home church history. I find this all interesting. Now that we have connected some what it will be awesome to keep the connection. Dee
