Index For William Polite

Introducing...William (Steplight) Polite

Military Records are a Godsend.. Part 1

Just A Quick Update

Just wanted to do a quick update to let everyone know I was still here. I have been doing some serious research the past month and a half and I have been quite successful. I have had a few brick walls that I had to head butt to get down, and some that are still up.

Here is a quick recap. I have traced my CLARK ancestors to the proverbial patriarch of the family, Adam CLARK (Sr.) and his wife Rose (SWEETWINE) BRYAN(T). I will explain the parenthesis in a later post.

On my POLITE line, I am still waiting for the military records for William POLITE. I did find a marriage record for his parents Thomas STEPLIGHT and Elouise "Honey" DRAYTON in Charleston County, South Carolina. I have been focusing all of my effort searching for them in Mckeesport, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, with little success. When I do restart this line of research I will switch locations and see where that gets me.

As you can see, I have been very busy and I have collected a lot of information. Right now I am trying to decide how to present the information, as well as gathering images and photos to go along with it.

Stay tuned for more...

It's Been A While... But I'm Back

I have about a month or so of break before my next set of classes start so I decided to jump back into my family history.

I honestly haven't done anything since the last time I posted, so no updates there.

I did finally get all of my paper organized in a portable file box. It's all color-coded and pretty. It makes me very happy!!!

I even paid for a month subscription to, so I'm definitely getting my money's worth.

Until next time...
