It's Saturday night and time for a Saurday Night Genealogy Fun
Challenge from Randy Seaver over at Genea-Musings! This week
Randy asks us to wax ...on our genealogy:

"Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1) Write a Genealogy Clerihew (and what is a "clerihew" you 
ask? See Jim Smith's post today for more details and his  
clerihew (briefly, a clerihew is a four-line irregular poem or 
verse that follows an AABB rhyme scheme. It is named for 
the birthday of Edmund Clerihew Bentley the inventor, aka 
writer, aka poet."). If you're feeling especially creative, write
two or more!
2) Show us your genealogy clerihew in a blog post of your own, 
in a comment on this blog post, or in a Facebook comment or 
update. C'mon, dazzle your readers and friends with your poetry
and creativeness."

Those of you who've read this blog for some time now know how
much , for better or verse, I love poetry. So:

My luck indeed is very good
In researching my Ellingwoods
And when I totally have done `em
The next line that I'll do is Dunham!

I swear that I will do my best
in working on John Cutter West
He's certainly a tough brickwall
But someday he is going to fall!

I thought I might have one or two
Ideas to write a clerihew
But as you readers now can see,
I ended up instead with three!
