Roy Whitesell's Shell Station, Indiana, circa 1930


Welcome to "The Cousins" site, as it has come to be known in our family. While many family sites are all facts and figures, we want to develop this site into an active part of our family. In order to do that, we need to give some background as to our site's origen.

I always want to know 'why' someone decided to undertake a project like this. How did it get started?

This site was conceived (pardon the upcoming pun) during a Baby Shower. The shower had given the opportunity for the female cousins of the Fagan side of my family. (it was a Baby Shower, so of course it was 'the girls'!) to get together and recount stories that we remember our grandparents telling us during our youth. There was a sudden realization that we are quickly becoming the 'older' generation (yikes!), and that we had information/stories that we wanted to save and pass along to the newest generation that was about to make its appearance.

During our sites' birth, our "baby" grew. The family information contained in this site is broader than that associated with the group of five Fagan first cousins (which includes me, and my four cousins - one brother and three sisters), but that was the origin, so it has taken on the nickname 'Cousins Family Tree' with all who have participated.
