Comfort Starr House - Guilford, Connecticut
This weekend there was an amazing response to the post SNGF - Signs You Have GOCD. The number of genealogists with this strange malady seems to be staggering! One thing for certain no support group is necessary since none want a cure.
Reading the comments yesterday one in particular caught my attention. A fellow blogger wrote the photograph of the Comfort Starr House drew her attention immediately. She "gasped" and said "Comfort Starr was my ancestor!"
She then proceeded to look up the exact relation to discover he was her 7th great-grandfather. Here is where we have another instance of genealogy serendipity! Comfort Starr was my husband's 9th great-grandfather. How fun to hear from one of my husband's distant cousins!
Thanks to Randy Seaver and Michael John Neill for providing an entertaining evening and family discovery. Keep blogging friends, never know where lighting will strike!
