Finding Ancestries land in Nauvoo

April 30,2013

Hi everyone.  Today served in the Blacksmith shop--my horseshoes look like they were intended for a horse with twisted hooves--I am getting better.  Beverly served in the Heber C. Kimball Home.  It was kind of a quiet day--not as many guests as yesterday.  I had a little free time so I went to the Lands and Records Office.  I was able to get a map showing the property that Grandpa Abraham Washburn owned.  I haven't gone looking yet.  It appears it will be in an inhabited portion of town.  I also checked on Great grandpa Thompson.  Now, he had the coolest lot in town.  He had two lots but the one I like is on a bluff overlooking the river--fabulous view.  The other lot appears to be the property our mission president lives--needless to say, he has the best home in town--do you think he would share since that property was once our ancestors?   Sister Harris' Great Great Grandpa Mayer  lived in a home across the street and where we live now adjoins that of Heber C. Kimball's and kiddie corner to Mayors home.

I want to just note that the Temple President is Spencer Condie, (GA Emeritus).  He spoke at a Sociable (Fireside) Sunday Night.  HE IS TERRIFIC.  He kept even me wide awake.  He was telling humorous stories about General Authorities.  Our leaders truly have a human side as well as spiritual.

Every Wednesday we have a mission training at 8 am--On Friday we have a mission breakfast--there are not many dull moments around here--Cheers to all.  Elder Harris
