I think my husbands grandmother attended every beech meeting unless she was sick. Most of the stories have died with that next generation, but there are more. As a past member of the Chrottesville Fiends Meeting located at the Northwest fringes of the Beech I feel that the old minutes of that meeting might have revealed more. A writer has just so much time though and the larger picture is the story.
(I chose the book because I live in Carthage, close to the site of the Beech Settlement and have an interest in its history.) I reviewed the book on April 11 at the Hancock County Library in Greenfield, Indiana. Following the review, the book club members came to my home. From there, our group of eighteen took a "field trip" out to the Beech. Accompanying us was Gladys Boatright, the granddaughter of Eli Archey who is pictured on the front of "Southern Seed, Northern Soil." We all enjoyed the book very much and enjoyed learning of the two fine communities the Beech and Roberts settlements.
It has spurred my family & I on to take the trip from NJ to IN to attend the 2000 Beech Homecoming & look forward to the Roberts Homcoming in 2001. I greatfully appreciate Stephen A. Vincent's labors.
