Mazie's Legacy in My Closet
In my previous post, I expressed my appreciation for a newfound cousin in Ancestry who made me aware that I my late Aunt Mazie in Foreman, Arkansas had written a book called So Now, We Wear the Green.
I now have something to offer in exchange to my new correspondent, JB, and to others who might come along with interest in the families who took over lands in the southwest corner of Arkansas, including but not limited to Little River and Sevier counties.
Finding The Pulpit and The Pew
In recent months, I have tried to consolidate the artifacts that family members, primarily my mother, have handed down to me. More than 25 years ago, my father made a photocopy of a self-published text called The Pulpit and The Pew. My father died in 1993 so I cannot ask him to confirm this. The pages that I found in among my mother's artifacts, were looseleaf photocopies bound by two holes at the top with a shoelace. This is how my father typically archived things that were important to him.
Inscribed to Malinda Cannon
I only met my great aunt Mary Zerelda one time when I was too young and shy to build much rapport with her. However, my older cousin Malinda grew up a short distance from my grandfather George Edward and she enjoyed traveling with him to see his relatives in Foreman. It appears that my father borrowed Malinda's copy of this book given and inscribed to her by our aunt Mazie. I hope to discover that one of my cousins has a copy of the larger text So Now, We Wear the Green.
