It's the Fourth of July..,

We have the flag flying and a few red, white, and blue decorations placed strategically around the house. We have no plans for today, Nathan is still not feeling well and the weather looks like it could rain any second. Several thunderstorms passed through the area yesterday providing plenty of "fireworks" accompanied by very loud rolls of thunder. I am thankful every day that I live in this free country and I am especially grateful to the men and women who have served and currently serve in the military. Their sacrifices have kept us free from oppression. One of our ancestors, Andrew Englis, served in the Revolutionary War and was present at Valley Forge. If you would like to read a little more about him go to: http://colonialancestors.com/revolutionary/oath4.htm His name is the fifth from the bottom of the roll of those who signed the Oath of Allegiance.

Englis is a lot like English, and one of my Bouchers married an English. They lived in SW VA and in TN.
