Last spring I went to my first D.A.R. meeting. It’s at a pretty club here in town, and everyone was so nice.
In fact, the speaker that day was related to a soldier who was in my PawPaw Captain Charles Polk Sr.’s Company in the Revolutionary War. I have a few other grandfathers who served too, including Andrew McLarty, Thomas Shelby, Henry Hastings, George Kiker, James Morrison, Thomas Hawkins, Andrew Hudlow (all these from the non-Jewish side of my family) and William Littlefield II who is buried at the cemetery at Bethany Baptist Church in Reece City, Alabama. If you’re also related to any of these gentlemen, I’d love to hear from you!
