Hello, Dearies!

 I just found this photo of Bathsheba Bigler Smith (2nd from right, front row), Bathsheba Kate Smith Merrill (4th from right, front row), and Grandma Richards (Irene Smith Merrill Richards), (3rd from left, back row)!  Fun, huh?

This is the new Covey-Richards Family History Website...


At Grandy's Christmas Party (2011), we discussed having a website we could use to share photographs and life stories of our ancestors, our own memories, and family history information with each other.  

Well, here it is.  Obviously, it's a work in progress.  

The main reason I did this is for my children and grandchildren (and your children and grandchildren).  So, here you go, guys!  There are some amazing stories of courage, endurance, and faith in the lives of those who paved the way for all of us...OUR OWN KIN.

Stephen Glenn Covey (Papa)
Feel free to add comments.  If you'd like to add information, photos, memories, or pedigrees, email them to me, and I'll upload them (  I'm doing it this way so that creepy people don't hack our website ;o-)

Love ya...Louise Williams Nelson (Weez)

P.S.  I took most of the dates from, but you should know that there are many duplicate dates for almost all of our ancestors.  I used the ones that looked most official to me, from what appeared to be the best sources.


Why do we call this "The Dearies?"  Grandy called us all "Dearies," and we loved it!

“To forget one's ancestors 
is to be a brook without a source, 
a tree without root”
