What is up with the Hair?

The most common question about C... Person looks at me - pauses - looks at my husband - pauses - and looks back at C - "Where'd the red hair come from?"

I get this question more than once a week. The short answer - my husband's beard. He has brown hair but his beard comes in with auburn tones.

The long answer? She is my Scots-Irish Appalachia baby. Both mine and my husband's families come from Appalachian mountain regions.
My grandmother has shared our family tree information with me a few times. I love learning about our family history. We were based around Franklin, NC. My great-grandmother had C's exact hair (and it was gorgeous) - beautiful auburn ringlets. My husband's family (both Mom and Dad's families) came from the West Virginia area. Quite honestly, I am surprised she wasn't born playing a dulcimer - ha... She does play the harmonica while I run (super funny).
