Motivation Monday - Writing Reminders

I'm now back from meetings in Costa Rica. It was a beautiful country, and I can cross a few things off my bucket list (extreme zip lining in the cloud forest, assisted with security for a President). It is definitely a place I would visit for a vacation. Posting stories & research has been a bit difficult due to workload and travel, although I did manage to post some photos. Here is an updated set of writing reminders for March:

- The Mexican War pension application of Miles Jones
- Following up on my inquiry with the Descendants of Mexican War Veterans
- My great-grandma Lois (Elizabeth Lois Whitley)
- Blanche Lamon O'Brien
- Easter Vail Armstrong
- California connections
- William Allman of Carroll County, Ohio
- William Daniel, husband of Sarah Melissa Jones
- Looking ahead to the 1940 US Census

Parking this for now as a future research idea, but I am interested to see how many men from Robert Thomas Jones Sr's company in the Tennessee 5th Infantry who returned home in 1848 actually received a pension for their service. [Update - see Company G Service Record & Pension Comparison].
