This Book

I heard through the family grapevine that there was a book on Amazon written about my paternal great-grandfather, Francis Nelson Page. The book arrived today. I'm overwhelmed with all of the stories and family history that I've only seen the edges of before, and photos that I'd never seen at all.

My father was the youngest of her eight children.

This is the first photo I have seen of her as a young woman.

I am still reading through the book. I just finished a chapter about Frank and Albinita and Billy the Kid.

This is all so very wonderful.
