Hope and a wish

Happy birthday Dad, Today I spent my whole day at home watching football, wishing I could watch the Bucs live with you.  Remembering those days when we watch the Bucs game and after the game was over you would fall asleep in the chair, snoring away.  I would have to get the grill going and then wake you up so you could cook the steaks.  Those were special days. I never sat back and thought what it would be like to lose you.  How can you when everything is going so well? Then life hits, and it just makes you wonder and think I could have treated ya better. I know I could have. You hear it all the time, and I heard it from you many times, "One day i'm not going to be here to help you son." Those words never sank in until now. I do know you raised me so well and gave me so much, in hope that I might do the same when its my turn.  Well dad, I will remember and I will try to be as patient with this little one as you were with me. And I will make sure that he/she knows that you hoped and wish for this day to be for a very long time........

Pedigree Chart for Richard Allen Pearson

I found my Pedigree chart last week. I added my wife Alison Beth Pearson and updated my fathers date of death. Just missing my Graandpa's date of death. Once I get that info I will update the chart again. Some of the older names on my mothers side I have never heard of. A lot of those names haven't been used in generations.  Its very fun and excited to share this information with you.

United States Citizens Defense Corps.

My grandfather was a member of the Jefferson County Auxiliary Police Unit during the 2nd World 
War.  As of now this the only document with his signature and hand writing that I have been able 
to find.

Jackson Guy Pearson 1941

This picture was taking in 1941.  I"m not sure where it is or who took the picture. I
hate not knowing these little facts about my family photos.  I can say my grandfather
really knew how to dress. Look at those shoes! Guess they didn't have hiking shoes
back then.

Dad and dog 1947

My dad was 4 years old with this photo was taken. I'm not sure what the name of the dog was? He is in a lot of
pictures through-out the album.  I guess thats why my dad was such an animal lover.  I don't think there ever was
a time when my father didn't have animals around.  I do remember when I was little someone gave us a dalmatian.
It was such a fun dog, lots of energy.  If the dog got out, it would run for days. I mean there was no one in the
neighborhood that could catch it. Eventually it would wear it self down and come back looking for water. I wonder
what happen to that dog? I think we ended up giving it to somebody with a larger yard. I hope it was the size of a
football field because we had a pretty big yard when I was growing up.

Descendant of William Armistead of Virginia

I found this Document the other day cleaning out some old papers.  Its an National Society
Colonial Dames application that my grandmother Zella Jones Pearson filled out for my cousin 
Margaret Montague Pearson Amaro. I thought I would share it will you since it tells some 
of the Lineage of the Pearson family on my grandmothers side, the Jones'. The line goes 
back to the date of 1619, which is the baptism of John Armistead in Yorkshire, England.  
Shortly after that the Armistead family move to America. and settled in Virginia.

Dad 1945

My father Richard Alan Pearson, no date on the back of the photo but I"m guessing its sometime
around 1945 based on the other photos around this one in the photo album.

No date on this clipping, I"m thinking its early 70's. I'm wondering why and when they decide to change the name of Derby Road to Diary Road, which is the name I have always know it to be.  A great photo non the less.

Pearson Portrait

A Pearson Portrait dated on the back November 4, 1943.  Never got to meet my grandfather but I
heard he was always smiling and joking around. Who ever took this photo must have said something
really funny. I would love to know what.  You can tell my grandmother is about to start cracking
up also.  They must have been going to some party or some event.  That generation sure did know
how to dress.

1944 Lincoln Rd

My father when he was a baby in 1944. I"m not sure who the other boy is. No name listed or
written down.  Looks like the house was on Lincoln RD in Anchorage, Kentucky.  I looked the
road up on google maps and I think they changed the name to Lincoln Way but i'm not sure.
My grandmother's writing is really bad, now I know where I get my bad penmanship from.

Pearson & Marzian Upholstery

My Grandfather, Guy Pearson was part owner of Pearson & Marzian Upholstery.  I believe it was in Anchorage, Kentucky.  The date on this page was 1945. What a great looking shop. I can just imagine my grandfather getting there early morning with a coffee in hand sliding those doors open. I'm not sure how long he was in the upholstery business or how long the shop was open.
