Today, he lives in the U.K. and only visits occasionally and for short periods of time, unable to cope with being around family for long periods of time. There appears to be unresolved attachment, as he feels my mother never understood him or approved of him. Perhaps understandable as much of his early years were spent at boarding school and then the army which in turn became a substitute family for
To conclude, I will discuss the impacts European’s had on the Cherokee people’s progression into the 21st century using Goehring’s (1993) model of colonial impacts. The Cherokee People The Cherokee people have been around for years prior to European invasion and colonization.

This obituary is for my great-great-grandmother, Martha Margerite Abraham, and was published in the 04 Sep 1957 issue of the New Ulm Journal. It has a great host of useful data about her, including her birth and death dates, birthplace, address at time of death, name of husband and place and date of marriage, residence after marriage, and place of burial. It also gives her husband’s date of death, the names and residences (cities) of her children at the time of her death, and the residences of her surviving siblings (two in New Ulm - these are named - and three in Germany). It even states that she died with “26 grandchildren, 57 great grandchildren, and two great great grandchildren,” which is a helpful figure when searching for cousins. There
For Garnet, he’s never really had either form go home. He mainly grew up in foster care, going from house to house constantly. He never really thought of these houses as his home but rather somewhere he lived for a short time. As a child, he only lived with his family for about a quarter of his life, and even that is considered minuscule due to his lack of memory retention at such a young age. Therefore, Garnet doesn’t know what a home can be.
