Who Do You Think You Are? - Tim McGraw

Last friday night the latest episode of "Who Do You Think You Are ?" was on with the celebrity at hand, Tim McGraw.  His story in finding his family roots was very interesting.  He wanted to know more about his dad's family line.   The show briefly talked about his father, Tug McGraw (1944-2004), and proceeded back in time at least 8 generations on this Chrisman and Hite Family line on the east coast.

They didn't actually venture out here to California.  I guess they didn't want to make the show about Tug McGraw so chose that route.  I bring up Tug McGraw because he actually went to my high school in Vallejo, CA.   He attended St. Vincent Ferrer High School in Vallejo, CA - SV'62.  My godmother, who lived in Napa growing up, was a year behind him at SV.  She finished her fnal two years of high school at Napa High instead of SV.

Tug was born in Martinez, CA.  I'm assuming that he either lived there or somewhere in Solano or Napa Counities when he attended high school.  He also went to Solano Community College in Fairfield, CA.  I noticed quickly on the program that they showed Tim's grandmother's (or it may have been his great grandmother) death certificate.  It stated "Napa County" across the top.  His family must have lived in Napa.  I wonder where they lived? 

Anyway, I always find it interesting when I come upon people from my "old stomping ground".
