It's been many months since I could devote some time here. I got the house financing and my family and I
moved to a beautiful small town in the Columbia Gorge. The last few months have been eaten up by moving and Christmas.
I've been out of touch with the Prowett family and I've had a hard time getting back
into genealogy recently. I lost one of my favorite 'new' relatives just before Christmas to cancer.
Harold "Hal" Joaquim Prowett, my husband's cousin, had been a wonderful friend and mentor for finding
out about my husband's family. I have a hard time doing much on this family right now, because so many of the names of the
early immigrants have a story of Hal's running through my mind. Soon though, I need to transcribe my conversation with him
and continue on finding what I can out about the Prowetts in the United States.
I just wish we'd had him longer...there was so much still for him to tell us...
Our blessings are with you Hal,
