Back From Michigan

We got back from our trip to Michigan last night. It was exhausting but great fun! We met with Brooks Applegate, II and his family. Brooks is mentioned in Bill's diary and there is a nice photo of him. He was one of Bill's cousins. We had a lot of fun going to places that Bill went to during his life. Brook's wife, Doddin, was very helpful. She located and arranged a meeting with two other women who are mentioned in the diary. It is so exciting to see these people I have been reading about for the last two years.

I am seated with the Applegates (Brooks and his wife and one of his sons and his children.) We did so much on our trip. Check back for more information and photos about our trip!
