About the Author
Joan Mathy Norgord was born and raised in the small town of Prentice, Wisconsin. She and her siblings grew up in the home of their great-grandfather, an elderly gentleman that they would come to love. Long after his death, she was inspired to write about him, but education, marriage and raising two children took priority. After attending Edgewood College in the early 1980s, she began to study ancestry. Curiosity about faces in old photographs, led to an examination of family history, especially in regard to her paternal great-grandfather. It would take more than 10 years to complete her mission.
