Louisburg, Kansas 1930s
My grandmother, Dorothy Richards, told me stories about when she was younger, but there are only a handful of things I remember:
I know my grandma lived on a farm in Kansas and often stayed with her grandparent on their farm in Louisburg, Kansas.
I know they did not have much money.
I know her grandfather, my great-great grandfather, was a beekeeper.
I know they lost the farm during the depression in the 1930s.
Those are a few things I know for sure, but I have bits of stories, a lot of pictures, genealogy, and a few handwritten stories.
With help from my dad, I am going to share their stories and pictures.
I would also like to recreate their experiences, skills, and techniques here on my farm in Eustis, Florida… I don’t know; maybe they are called the greatest generation for a reason.
