Here’s the beginning of a timeline to build our story around. Are there other things that should be included? Please add additions to a comment, and I will revise our timeline to include them.

There are bits and pieces of our history that have already been written, and I will post them soon. We will work them into our history as we go.

  1. LV is an abbreviation of the name of the place where our farm was located. Since the blog is public I did not want to give specific names and places so potential spammers could identify the living family members. Your mom can tell you what the abbreviations mean. Thanks for joining us!
