Patricia Quinn Meigs has spent 15 years researching her ancestry.
And along the way she has faced all sort of stumbling blocks.
“We never figured out why my dad didn’t want us to know,” Meigs told the Canon City Daily Record.
“We have found skeletons. The skeletons now are history. There was a great uncle that was murdered, and apparently, my grandfather went after his own justice when the courts wouldn’t do it the right way. It was a really bad deal. That was one skeleton. Then, my grandparents were married, but not to each other.”
