About The Author

My husband and I have lived in Southern Illinois all of our lives. I have always loved history and even pursued it as a major in college. In 1972 I received what should have been a simple assignment from my American Studies Professor to develop our immediate family tree. I completed the assignment but soon realized I had been stung by the genealogy bug. With my husband having the same sort of interests, we have spent the last 30 years diligently working on and off in an attempt to expand that initial tree as well as many others. My book contains three of those stories about my actual ancestors. I tried to write them in a format that would once and for all destroy the concept that history has to be dull. In them you are invited to have a front row seat in the rather typical but incredibly moving lives of three strong willed, faith driven, family first women. I hope you enjoy and if so, keep an eye out for future trilogies.
