Sunday night we had a "sociable" ( Nauvoo's equivalent of a fireside) where 20 missionaries each presented a story of one of their ancestors who lived in Nauvoo.
I presented Jane Johnston Black, my third-great grandmother on Grampa's side. I discovered that she was a lot like me in many ways! I am going to try posting her story on this blog in 3 sections. I don't know whether it will work, so we'll see.
There are plaques all along the Trail of Hope to the Mississippi River. Jane Johnston Black's quote is on the last one.
