Forgive me I didn't read your poems. I'm more interested in your name ALSPAUGH. My great grandmother was Sarah Elizabeth Alspaugh who married William Mcguffey and they are buried in Iowa. Considering you are in sacramento and I'm in Gridley California about an hour north of you i was curious to know if we are related in any way. Enquiring minds want to know. By the way my oldest Mcguffey sister lives in Lincoln, CA.
