(North Dakota:  My grandfather, Frank Lawrence Ray, that is, my Dad’s dad, was born in Cherryfield, Maine either in 1857 or 1859 before the beginning of the American Civil War.   He was one of six children to reach adulthood, with three older brothers.

The family apparently was wealthy…..rather strict in its Protestantism and practiced primogeniture, that is, the eldest son would become the sole or primary recipient of  the family wealth,  estate,  and station.   Frank was the fourth boy with a rather different future.   When seventeen he left Cherryfield to go West, alone and on horseback…….to North Dakota.  He had purchased Homestead acreage near a village called Hope….about 50 miles west of Fargo.

Somewhere in my disorganized family possessions I have a photo postcard of himself he sent from Chillicothe, Ohio, addressed to his Mother with the greeting:  “Mother, I am fine.  Frank.”   He reached his acreage safely and began farming, remaining single.   About fifteen years later, a young teenager,  Anna Williams, was moving by wagons with her sisters,  parents, and possessions  from Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin which got stuck in mud while attempting to cross the Sheyenne River just East of the town of Hope.   Frank and friends gathered to help them cross the Sheyenne.   The Williams family homesteaded about twenty mile away.   Frank and Anna married a few years later and eventually  had five children, Sam, Frank, Lawrence, Herbert, my father, and Catherine.   (Glenn H.
