On this journey called life, I am now, closer to the end, than I am to the beginning. For this reason, I feel some urgency in completing this book. My mission is to pass on as much information about our family history as possible, for my children.
I write with much sadness in my heart. This was never the dream for my children, to learn from a book. As you read through this book, I pray you experience the same emotions, as I did writing it.
You will take a journey through time, from Germany, Scotland, Ireland, ending in the United States.
On this trip you will share joy and sadness, life and death, marriage and divorce. To some it may seem like a roller-coaster ride, but to me, it's my life.
You will be presented with opinions and facts, and ultimately it's your choice for what you believe.
On our journey through time, you will see attempts to overthrow corrupt governments, and the following effects. We will explore some unjust laws of government, and the church.
We will look at my families’ involvement in all of this. Government rebellion, Church reformation, and fighting unjust laws!
Stay close, and you to, will brush elbows with some of history’s most famous people, just as my ancestors have. The likes of Daniel Boone, Daniel Morgan, and lastly a 23-year-old, George Washington, future president of the United States.
If you laugh, and you cry, and you learn, and this makes you think, then my work has been a success.
