Welcome to my Generation


Bonnie Faughn - 2008

Bonnie Faughn San Antonio ’07

Hi this is Julie, sometime in the mid 90’s mom and I started doing research on our family history.  We traveled to family reunions in Iowa several times, over the years,  and met some of the Mackey and other families that still live there.  I started a extensive family tree record, including lots of photographs of both sides of our family (Stelzer & Borchard) at that time and have tried to keep it us as best I can.


Mom (Bonnie Elizabeth (Borchard) Faughn) came to live with me in Denver in 2005 from Paducha, Kentucky.  Where she has lived for the past 20 or so years.  A year later I was transferred to Texas after the Macy’s & May Company Merger.  Upon moving to Frisco I found she had a number of different journals she had been writing in since the  90’s.


I started this blog for her so she would have a place to record a lot of the scribbles she has done in those journals.  I believe some of the stories are worth while and things that her family may one day like to read, I found them interesting.  She may or may not figure out how to use the internet enough to put the writings up herself, so I  may end up having to do it for her.  At any rate, I’ll try to keep up with it and send out a notice so everyone can read the things she (or I) am putting up.
