A well written history of your family. A blessing they
were quickly out of danger.

|You draw the story in such a descriptive way that I can smell the smoke and hear the crackling of the flames. I can see the fear in the eyes of the escaping people.
This happened way too much and many can’t recite this terrifying experience.
Thanks for sharing this piece of history with us Jerry

|Im glad everyone made it out safely. Written as only you can, I was getting nervous reading it. I lost a home to fire, a tenant was asleep and her child played with her lighter. Luckily they got out to safety.|

|How sad to have to leave everything like that. You tell the story in such a fashion that it's like seeing it all take place! Strong people, my lord!

|It happened so many times in those days when houses were built entirely of newly cut wood, fires were used for heat, and there was no machinery for cutting brush that grew up everywhere after the large trees were felled.
My grandfather grew up in a log cabin, the second his father built. I'm sure there were fires, my great uncle became a fire chief, but there is no history of them in our family, only the great tornado of 1928 or so.
Tell more stories…

|Thank goodness the most important thing from the home was saved. The family. So sad for the horses and whatever other people and animals that must have been lost in such a terrible way. As Lily said though, what a piece of history indeed. And you have passed it on and grown the story's audience and therefore, history's witness, just like any teller of tales who passes history on down the line, and done it so very well, an important thing. Thank you Jerry. Kathy

|WOW, that was something Jerry..
What a piece of history! And of
course if not for the quick
thinking and the availability
not all would be here and perhaps
you to tell it :)
Love and Light
