So I post the following not because she is one of my ancestors, but because she is someones, and she lived. I come from a long line of pioneer women, and as I was gathering information about my own ancestors from the book "Pioneer Women of Faith and Fortitude Vol IV" I read this womans story. It touched me, made me shed a tear or two, and I recognize that it was written somewhat sentimentally, but also I can not imagine living in a time when life was so hard. Lets face it, I love technology and the inventions that have eased our lives now. Oh how admire those who lived before us and had to struggle so much.
