Research for 3 branches of my family: Rogers, Booth and Swasey
Please ask permission before using any of my posts for other publications. I usually will say yes. This site is my family tree, or genealogy blog. Any errors are probably due to my own confusion, so I welcome comments. Or if you want to see my pottery stop by Alchemy of Clay. My photos of Living in Black Mountain NC extend to wherever I go. My own life and some history is shared at When I was 69.

My oldest son, Marty
Roger Martin, my firstborn, came into the world on this day about 54 years ago. What a long and wonderful time this has been.
With George Rogers, in Houston TX around Nov-Dec 1964. Grandfather was just 50. Marty around 6 mos.
Doug on left, is Marty's father. Doug's parents are Norm Heym (center) then Marty about 2 years old, then Mary Hillyer Heym, on right.
Marty cuddles to his grandmother Mataley Rogers holding Marty's new little brother, Russ born Aug 1967
Marty with his Aunt Mary Miller, holding little brother Russ
While Russ slides banister, Marty talks with cousin Lisa (blond with back to camera). Aunt Mary is looking at something while her son Zach sits at her feet (wearing blue shirt). Again waiting to go into a restaurant for lunch...this time in San Jacinto, Texas.
That's one picture for each year!
I hope this birthday is great for you, dear son...and that you have many more happy years! I love you SO MUCH!
