Trisha Yearwood To Appear on TLC’s ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ Tonight
According to Ancestry.com, Yearwood’s episode features the singer tracing her 5x great-grandfather Samuel Winslett, whose life really does sound like a Country song:
[Yearwood] follows Samuel’s trials and tribulations: from being orphaned at a young age to facing a devastating punishment to starting a new life in unfriendly territory. Trisha’s roller coaster journey builds as she uncovers more layers to Samuel’s story in parish records — and more court documents than she could ever imagine. Her immigrant ancestor’s life comes full circle as a story that started with despair ends in redemption, and Trisha concludes that we “draw strength and part of our own character from what comes before us.”
