Time at Mom's

Steve and I went down to Mom's apartment after the Bible study tonight.  We went through a book she and Polly put together on genealogies of the Manning family.  It took a lot of work to create this book and I was very impressed.  I had so much fun reading about people back in the 1800's and before.

One family member came from England and was said to be sold as a slave until he turned 21 (I think).  I think they meant indentured.  This gentleman actually bought land (160 acres) from William Penn.  Can you imagine?  He later gave each of his children 20 acres each.

I wish I had information like that on hand about my relations.  We had a wonderful time visiting with Mom, laughing a lot, it was wonderful.
