Tonight I said goodbye to my very dear friend and cousin, Dennis Lee Satterwhite. He fought an incredibly brave battle against cancer for the last six months. We were with him to the end of this journey and sent him, with love and care, to the next.
For nearly three years Dennis and I have spent countless hours researching our Satterwhite ancestors in Granville County, North Carolina. Our boots were on the ground doing miles of hiking in heavily wooded areas and hands-on research on every record we could find. We found and walked the original properties of our beginning ancestors: Michael, James, Howell, Solomon, and Nathan Satterwhite. We found lost burial grounds and uncovered records that have changed the past research of this amazing family. My search will continue but it won't be the same without Dennis. I know he will be walking with me in spirit and who knows, perhaps guiding me towards the other mysteries yet to be solved.
Dennis, I hope your new journey is fantastic.......
