    • "Yes they were very definitely Quaker. I remember going to the church with them. My first experience of being quiet in church was Grandma and Grandpa had bought me a navy blue dress with little white buttons for trim around the neck and around the dropped waist and we had to sit still and be VERY quiet in church. I was not making any noise but I was taking my finger and counting the buttons and Grandma gave me a look and when we left church she told me "the Bible says to be still and know that I am God. Psalms 46:10". I have never forgot it or where to find it."

    Notes 
    • Written by Olive Alexander Richison in Sept 1930. The last named Thomas is my dad.

      MY KIN FOLK

      I am going to tell you about my Kin
      But I hardly know just where to begin
      My great grandfather DANIEL ALEXANDER from Scotland came
      Came to the United States to make for him self a name
      The facts are this as the story goes
      He ran off to marry the girl his parents opposed
      SALLY FREY was the girl he wed
      May 31 1787 the date the cermony was read
      And to this union seven children came
      PRUDENCE, JOHN, THOMAS, MARGARET, HENRY, MARTHA, and JAMES.
      The one named THOMAS was my own grandad.
      And of the rest I cannot say ang any good or bad
      Grandad was born in 1810 Aug 11 the date
      In the county of Preble, Ohio the state
      LUCINDA HARSHMAN was the girl of his dreams
      To mother his children and keep his house clean
      There were twelve children JOSEPH, HENRY, JAMES, and SOL.
      DANIEL, ABRAHAM, THOMAS & GEORGE eight boys in all.
      LUCINDA, SARAH, MARY, & Rhoda Jane
      Were the daughters that too this couple came
      And we the off spring and grandchildren all
      Gather to celebrate and their memory recall.
