letter written by Helen Ruth Rice: I can remember Grandmother India Nola talking about Allegheny County in PA and I wish I had listened more carefully or taken notes. Her mother was from farm land in Lancaster, PA but her Father worked in a Factory in PitTsburg making nails. Great Grandmother was homesick for farmland and Great Grandpa had a habit of drinking too much, so when she heard Mo was open for homesteading settlement Great Grandma insisted they go west. They homesteaded in very poor soil and could not make a living on the farm. Great Grandpa used to go to St. Louis to work in the factory and left her on the farm to manage in a log cabin. She died when she was 49 and my Grandmother became chief cook and bottle washer for her father and brothers.*
