~~It began when my father passed away in 2001 and a copy of Addie’s "Driftwood" miraculously landed in my lap. Other documents, letters from cousins, and a painting of the Spiritualist Camp in Delphos, Kansas, done by Donald David Ballou found their way to my “lap” as well. Eventually, I accepted that I was the one to write this biography of my great-great-grandmother. A photograph of that painting is what you see on my Home page. The painting itself is now in a museum in Delphos, Kansas.
