I have been working on some stories about some of our Redus clan and have posted them to our Family Blog. Hope you enjoy what we have been able to uncover on one of the family patriarchs - John Redus, and two of our more colorful Redus Hell Raisers - Roscoe Redus and Bluett Sanders Redus. I love the story of both these guys and it is great to finally have a couple of blacksheeps in my family even though they are only cousins. Wish one of them was my Redus ancestors, then I would have a clear shot to membership in the International Black Sheep Society of Genealogists (IBSSG). ;-)))
I still have more material to post, including the over 20 year legal battle of the Aaron Redus estate and more. You can RSS our blog or join as a follower to keep track of the new material we post. We are at the Family Roots and Branches Blog at http://family-genealogy.blogspot.com/

If you have some neat stories to share about our Redus bunch, you can pass them along to my email address, and we will post them to the blog, of course, full credit will be given. So don't let those memories, stories, and people/tombstone pictures stay tucked in a file folder. The rest of us would like to read a goot story as well.
I also want to remind you that if you are a descendant of Aaron Redus and Lucy Ann Oglesby, you are eligible for membership to the Nicolas Martiau Descendant Association. As National Registrar for this group I can assist any of you in getting your app prepared. You can learn more about old Nic at http://www.nicolasmartiau.org/
