I'am not sure what you fellows call that war? We (Schramm/Shrum) made it south down the coast and got married to a Cherokee gal. Hence my " chat name". I've got a bunch of famous Cherokee ancestors name of Starr (outlaws) I've been an outlaw, Cop, devil & Christian too. Learned to live/love bikes in the 60's in California saw many a biker loved some and hated some. Just a long winded intro LOL. So ya all are piss artists eh LOL, and hey hope you've gotten the good "meds"
That's a fair bit of ancestry there! You have obviously done a bit of digging. It incredible that you can trace your heritage back to 1600 from Bavaria. Did your folks come over with the Pilgrim fathers?

I think the War of 1812 as we know it is called the Anglo-American War of 1812!! I buy "Wild West" magazine (I'm an nutter for anything Old West!) and read quite a bit about the outlaws of that period, and the name "Starr" quite often crops up, Belle Star is the main one I know about. Funnily enough Starr cropped up in August Edition, so I tried to trace it through the article, but couldn't find it. So I googled it thinking the name was "Bobby" Starr! That was an education!!!! Ahem! As for me meds? Yep they're essential, especially when you keel over with a heart attack, at 48! That was 9 years ago and I'm still upright so I must be doing summat right! Welcom to the forum.
