    Family History

    I was given this book as a gift by my daughter. She discovered it quite by accident. This book contains alot of my family history. I had heard stories of my mothers families move to New Mexico and the land grant process but did not realize that there daily lives had been documented. The Beeson family mentioned in the book are my great-grand parents, and there were many great pictures of them. I was lucky enought to know them ( they were in thier 90's when they passed) and what a treasure to learn of there lives and struggles. Linda Cooper
