Everyone on the Forum knows me as Spring Chicken, but I also have a regular name, Leroy McMillin.
A few years ago I began the arduous task of tracing my ancestry. It wasn't long before I discovered that the name "McMillin" by any other of hundreds of spellings comes from the same family line. Well, that opened up a flurry of new searches and I eventually traced us back 2,000 years to a small area in what is now Spain. The Romans forced many to flee and some ended up in Ireland and Scotland.
In all my reading, one remarkable story was a pleasant surprise. It seems that one of my ancesters invented the bicycle.
His story is an interesting one.
