About the Author

Rev. Elroy Haverlah has been an ordained Lutheran minister since 1973. His most recent congregation, where he served for almost twenty years, was a historic Swedish congregation near Austin, Texas. It was there at Palm Valley Lutheran Church that Haverlah became enamored with the many descendants of immigrants who settled the area in the mid-nineteenth century. After retirement he did extensive research into the Swedish immigration to Central Texas. One of the products of his study was his publication of "Anna's Journey," a historical fiction about the first settlers in the Round Rock area. His latest book, "History of Swedish Lutheran Churches in Texas," is the compilation of the history of the first congregations established in the state.

Haverlah is happily married to Rachel. Their two grown children are married with children of their own, four grandsons, in whom he delights when not busy writing.
