Accounts of the Lives of the Grandchildren (and Greatgrandchildren) of
George and Ann Prior Jarvis.

    A comment: When families become split into two or more parts, whether because of plural marriage, divorce, death and re-marriage, or whatever cause, it sometimes happens that ill or bitter feelings develop. Yes, it's unfortunate, but it happens. The stories recorded here come from those who lived at the time and some of the stories reflect those feelings. These things happened, it's unfortunate, but it's over and done, it's part of our history, and it is not for us to judge or attempt to assign blame. One of the effects of these splits is the bitterness which can be passed down as a heritage for succeeding generations. Another is the tendency of some others in later generations to take sides, assign blame, and apply that blame to children, grandchildren, and other descendents who had no part in the original problem. We can do better than that.

    Some of the stories contained here refer to things like divorces, etc. that occurred and were part of the ill feelings and bitterness. Many other similar things are not mentioned because no one has submitted a story that says anything about them. The individuals that are mentioned with bitterness were not 100% bad and those whose stories make no such mention were not 100% good. It is not for us to point fingers and judge.
