Toler, Overton, Worchester, Sansom, Lusk, Short

I am using the computer program Family Tree Maker and World Family Tree (Banner Blue Software)

My main driving force in using the computer and traveling is researching the family tree and history. It has enabled me to study history with a special interest .by feeling that I am part of it in researching my family travels and when I find a family link I feel that I have solved a mystery and that I must look even father back. And by not only researching surnames, I also research the madden names so the branches are endless. Two Family books found of interest were

"The Boy Captives" (Geronimo) by Clint & Jeff Smith

Goyathlay (Apache for "One who yawns")
Tosacowadi (Comanche for "Leopard Cat")

"Capt. John" John Sansom a Texas Ranger: by Frankie Davis Glenn

"The Short Family" By John David (Jack) Short
