The Beginning of My Genealogy Journey
Meet My Grandparents
This packrat has learned that what the next generation will value most is not what we owned, but the evidence of who we were and the tales of how we loved. In the end, it's the family stories that are worth the storage.

Grandma and Grandpa Treat
Sherman and Ruth (Lawrence) Treat
My Mom's parents were residents of the Northeast Arkansas area until the early 1960s when they moved to Northwest Arkansas where they would remain for the rest of their lives. Grandpa Treat was a farmer for Tyson Foods. When they first lived in Northwest Arkansas, they lived on Don 1 Farm in Springdale where they would remain until the mid 1980s. From there, they would move to several other farms before retiring to a house on Poplar Street in Rogers Arkansas. Grandma was a homemaker who loved to quilt and crochet.
