Chapter 74 – Conclusion
Compiling this historical and genealogical material has been an invigorating experience for me. Its primary purpose is to make available information for the use of our children, grandchildren and any other relatives having such an interest.
It has been my privilege to research enough records to see an amazing number of significant people who’ve crossed the paths of our family. Many people could identify such connections, I am confident, should their interest lead them to investigate. Our family, for the most part, has contained people who have nurtured a Christian faith and discipline. My attempts have been to include whatever information that could be found to tell you, the readers, about how Christian faith is such a significant element in our lives. I hope you will notice those occasions that are illustrated.
This material is not for sale. It is for sharing freely with you and others who want to get their arms around history and family. Please feel free to use the information to enhance whatever you may choose to write about your family. If you use significant portions from this work, I do not require your seeking my permission. It would be appreciated if you would attribute this work as a source when you do make such use.
Blessings upon you,
