So today, what is on the table? Many people know that I grew up in Mexico, Mo, and at the moment, I am obsessed with reading the facebook page Memories of Growing UP in Mexico, Mo. I am looking at all the old pictures, trying to place where things had been, where my house was located close to it, stuff like that.
Muldrow becomes Western, and then that becomes Paris Road (Highway 15).
So back to the history of Mexico. With having lived there until I was 26, so that means from the early 70's to the late 90's. I knew a lot of people. And growing up a Jehovah's Witness (which, yes, I am still one!) that means I grew up knowing quite a few people. So for the fun of it, I have done the research on their families, and who they were, and how they connected to Mexico. Although, I have to admit, I have not done any of the work such as the ones at the Genealogical Society have done, they are wonders there!!
They were married by Larry Minor, and he has been a family friend for many years. So Mexico will always be a very special place to me.
My grandmother Henrietta (Scott) Heyen, was a painter, and her name was well known in that area of Missouri.
