One of my very favorite, written by Fleta and Betty together, is the story of Jacob Goldman and his mother, referred to again and again as ‘The Widow Goldman.’ Here http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~powell/jacob.htm
You will find that story.
In 1996, I was working alongside many friends that had only recently journeyed here to start a new life. I sometimes heard the locals say these people should go back to their own country where they belonged. This always made me think of the many stories I had found about my own people coming here from a far off land. I wrote the poem Born On the Side of Right, expressing my feelings about being and accidental American. The poem is here http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~powell/right.htm
And then there is the poem about Charles Powell, our Revolutionary ancestor here http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~powell/freedom.html with a link to his story. It has been a great source of amusement to me that many of Charles Powell's descendants have been made members of the DAR on the strength of the document listing Charles Powell as a member of the Halifax County VA militia, as a deserter.
