Judge Us By Our Deeds
The following 4 pages are some of what the history books tells us about the 1800’s. Some paragraphs are my feelings on some of the things that happened in the past. None of the following is cast in stone. I am hoping that someone can and will correct my mistakes. Please send me the corrections. A document of this type, the facts have to be correct to be able to be past on. We have a family to be proud of.
P/S Don’t forget I am not an English major or a historian. I just put this together with lots of caring love and wanting to know. I have incorporated as many pictures as I could. I believe the pictures will attract the younger generation. Fashions , hair styles and other items that pictures show are the interest points for the younger generations.
I would give a lot to find a picture of Prudence and Bridget. I believe there is one out there somewhere, but where.
