Sibling Saturday: The Wesley Clan


Ollie Mae, Artenise, Nancy, Lonnie Davidand Vancile

Pictured above is my Grandmother Artensie (center) and some of her siblings Ollie Mae, Nancy, Lonnie David and Vancile at one of the Wesley Family Reunions, most likely in the early 1990s. Everyone in this picture has passed on but their memory and legacy still lives on in the growing Wesley family. I love seeing old photos of my family especially the elders enjoying themselves, I could only imagine what they were laughing about.

Meet The Moorers

Through my genealogical research via I was able to connect with relatives in Alabama on my great grandmother Jessie Belle Moorer Cox side of the family. Last week traveled to Alabama and I had the pleasure to meet Frank Moorer, a cousin who I had been in contact with since April. We both descend from Adam Moorer who is said to have been born in South Caroline and Malinda Hale born in Alabama. Frank said he told his siblings about me and they also wanted to meet me, I was excited to meet my family, I felt like I was on a an episode of Who Do You Think You Are and or Finding Your Roots. I went from having never met a single relative on my great grandmother’s side to being introduced to a whole family. It still feels a little surreal that I met them, they made me feel so welcome like I had known them for years. I definitely look forward to meeting more of my Moorer family members.

I think sites like as well as are great tools not only for genealogy but to also connect with new family members. On my way to Alabama I stopped in Atlanta and I was able to meet for the first time my cousin DeVan who I am related to on my grandmother Artensie’s side of the family, we still don’t know the direct link but it is from that side of the family. I have also spoken to cousin Sonny who also descends from Adam Moorer and Malinda Hale, and cousin Tina who like DeVan we are still trying to find that common ancestor but no the less these are my cousins.
