It’s 17 degrees today and I’m editing my forthcoming book…until I came to this passage:
The winter of 1779-1780 was known as “the hard winter.” The ground was endlessly covered by heavy snowfall. The waters lay still and frozen as far south as Nashborough [Nashville]. Wild hogs froze to death. With no food to be found, the deer fell frozen in large numbers. Dead turkeys littered the landscape. The blood of buffalo froze in their veins, leaving fewer standing by winter’s end than in any year in memory. Capt. William Casey and his men camped with no benefit of shelter, many sleeping in the open air under frozen deer and buffalo skins, from which some never awoke. Here lay the bloody ground John M. James and Clara Nalle soon entered with their Traveling Church.
Enough of that. I’m off to Burger King.
Hi there. I have been submitting information and getting information from “Stray Leaves” since October 1999. Eric James is the author. I am a third great granddaughter of John M. James and Clara Nalle James. Their information is on “Stray Leaves.” We have outlaws Frank and Jesse James on Stray Leaves, too, as our cousins. We have actors and former actors and vice presidents and former vice presidents and presidents and former presidents and governors and former governors and mayors and former mayors and lawyers and real estate people and the Dalton gang and probably more than that in our James line on “Stray Leaves.” We also have Sam Walton, the founder of Wal-Mart. John M. James and Clara Nalle James are his great great grandparents. It also has my Huey line back to 1680 in Ireland. “Stray Leaves”also has information on our line that goes back to William the Conqueror. It goes back to royalty and beyond. Thanks to Eric James who has stayed after it “Stray Leaves” is a big success. “Stray Leaves” also has lots of pictures of Frank and Jesse James, and lots of other people in history. “Leaves of gas” is a new beginning. Sincerely, Mary
