The header picture is the family of Robert Bruce Cheek, probably taken in Mangum, OK around 1903. Robert Bruce is my great grandfather who moved to Oklahoma from Georgia before statehood. The tall, good-looking young man on the back row is my grandfather, Joseph Marion Cheek. The son on the left is my greatuncle, Robert Luther Cheek, who was killed in France during WWI. My great grandmother is Carrie Savannah Adams. Her father, Salathiel Adams, was killed at Vicksburg during the Civil War.
The blog title is taken from the Keat’s poem, Fancy. The full poem can be found at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~cheekfamok/johnkeats.html
