52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: Week 1 #4 Eric Ormond WEYMOUTH

Amy Johnson Crow suggested a weekly blog theme of "52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks" in her blog post Challenge:  52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks on the No Story Too Small blog.  That was back in 2014.  

Since I'm just beginning my own blog and my own review of ancestors, I'm going to follow her challenge with a slight change.  


I'm going to check that all the claims I've made about each ancestor, as listed in my RootsMagic software, have accurate and correct citations attached. Wherever I find omissions or inaccuracies, I'll do what I can to correct them immediately.  If I can't, they'll be added to my "to-do list" for attention.


Since unfortunately all my grandparents are deceased, I feel OK starting with them, and I'll approach them in Ahnentafel order, a la Randy Seaver in his blog series.


So, please meet my paternal grandfather - #4 in my Ahnentafel list :-)
