A Name to Live Up To

I stole a few hours this morning to do some research on my family tree before I went to work. I found these names in marriage records from the 1800s:

Patience Omen
Recompense Stansbury
Samuel Snailbaker
Comfort Star
Temperance Toppy

What great names! Can’t you imagine them as characters in a Wanda E. Brunstetter novel?

I have to say I’m glad my parents didn’t name me Patience; I could never have stood up to the pressure!
