People and Places in the Book

Book cover - photo

The book cover shows Fred Bartsch resting in the yard of his Arkansas home.  Fred was born in 1910 and was ninety years old when the photo was taken.  He is the source of much of the material used in the book. 

Hopefully the stories told in this book will encourage others to document the recollections of their elderly relatives.  Descendants will find it more interesting to know that Great Uncle Albert had a nasty temper or that Great Aunt Ethel had a drinking problem than to merely know their birth and death dates.  Brief tales that highlight incidents in a person's life will make them seem more alive for future generations.
