Growing up on Anne's Farm

$20.00










This book follows the history of a family farm in Michigan from 1837 until 1990. It is the story of the author’s Great Grandmother Anne 's farm, given to her by her parrnts when she married. They had given 240 acre farms to each of their children in the newly settled part of northern Macomb County, Michigan. Two eighty acre parcels were undeveloped forest land; the other two had previously been partly developed farms whose owners had moved on.

Mary and John True grew up on Anne’s farm, and many of the stories of four generations were told in letters between members of the families. These letters were kept in the family and told much of what happened. Their father and his sister Agnes owned the farm together for years and wrote regularly about it. These letters were especially valuable sources of the period including World War I and the Great Depression of the 1920s and 30s.
