"Thanks for your assistance and research into our family tree with an amazing compilation of chapters and historical data from church records and family and friends records over the years. My mother Georgia Wilkerson (Ashcraft-Billings) gave this to us as a gift! My oldest son Jonathan made a cross country trip to our home in Woodbridge to deliver it to us from Orem. I’ve only briefly skimmed through the book and on chapter 3, but love the well organized chapters with detailed photos in the back. What a great miracle and treasure!"

"The only problem with this book," Leah Ruth Lewis Johnson said, "is it is too large to read in bed!" Nonetheless, she read the entire book several times stating that she loved the Historical notes at the end of each chapter. In here easy chair Delma Lewis read the entire book as well.
A missionary from Lehi, Utah serving in the Independence Missouri Mission purchased her own copy of the book when we gifted one to the Visitor's Center.
First teenager to read the entire book! I’m told she read all night.
