Quarto, paperbound (stiff, textured tan wrappers), [viii]+ 81 pp. With a few related notes, articles, photos. laid-in. From Preface: This is the story of my maternam grandpaernts, Dr. John Ward Hill and Sarah Mutelle Whitmire Hill. It is a true account of their move from their native state of South Carolina to the wilderness of Florida in 1884 in a covered wagon. It is a portrayal of the hardships endured and the pleasures enjoyed in a settling in a strange, new land. This is a story of memories, the memories of their eight children...I am reporting it as they told it to me over many years. Some the the experiences seemed insignificant but had made such deep impressions upon them that they often began with the same nostalgic, sometimes unimportant, memories. These sons and daughters too great pride in being pioneers; they cheerfully related their adversities. They bragged about Pa - his courage and honor; they boasted about Ma - her endurance and her determination...This is also the story of my own memories. I was priviledged to be the first grandchild and I spent a great deal of time with my grandparents...I have at different times retraced their route to Florida and have marveled at their boldness in starting on a five hundred mile journey to an unknown land with eight children, two mules, a nine year old horse, a colt and two dogs...I was able to supplement these memories with many family letters which Grandma had saved, with Mama's genealogies and scrapbooks and with the reminiscences of Cousin Jesse Whitmire, the ninety-five year old patriarch of our Whitmore family...
