Descrizione prodotto


"This is a publication of 201 letters written between 1918 and 1945 by members of the Edgeworth family of the Angelus community of Chesterfield County, SC. This is a story of survival and sacrifice of the Edgeworth family but it is not to say that this family had it any worse than any other members of this community or state during this era.

The transcript contains detailed profiles of each family member, some of which is gleaned from the compiler's memories but mostly from the letters. The story begins as far back as 1871; however, the story in the Angelus community begins in 1913 when Sallie M. Edgeworth's husband died and she moved with her seven children to a cotton farm on County Road 33 in Chesterfield County, SC. The widow actually has to mortgage her crop of cotton, cotton seed, corn and fodder grown on her land for the amount of $10 at the general store. The family endured many hardships during this era but all pulled together to keep the family in tact."


Douglas M. Edgeworth is a production worker for Bridgestone-Firestone Inc. in Wilson, North Carolina. He is a widowed parent of three grown children: Douglas Lee, Carter Hayes, and Amanda Corinne.

5.0 su 5 stelle Awesome, Awesome Gem Of Southern History! 15 febbraio 2015
Di Jermaine Dukes - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
An awesome read! A step back into a life and time of the South from which I was born and raised. The letters in this book depict a family's will to survive despite the hardships and poverty that they faced. A love story as well as the determination of a woman to overcome their current situation for her family's well being. I highly recommend it.

Doug has done a wonderful service to those of us who love not only genealogy, but also try to get to know the people we chronicle. The Edgeworth family has long been known as a letter writing people with letters going back to the 1700s. Doug's family has continued this tradition and he has shared with us, in the compiling of these letters, the hardships and the joy of life in "the Sandhills". Life has always been hard in this area, but this is the story of the common man overcoming difficult situations in a difficult time of history. We often remember the or are taught of people that make history, but these people make up the backbone of communities all across America that have really made our country great.

I found the book to be something I could relate to as I also grew up in a farming family and lived to receive letters from my older brother who had gone off to serve in the Korean War. We lived for his letters and he lived for ours as well.
The letters kept the simplicity of the spelling of those days and schooling and made it more realistic. I think it was most interesting and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the history of the south.

The author did a great job of conveying Southern living. Though much younger, it gave me a realistic view of the life my grandparents would have lived and a great appreciation for their hardships and eternal love of the land.
