The Life of Lois Twichell
was written down by herself near the end of her life. All the
are from Memory and Letters she kept over the years. The website was
built on these
Memoirs and expanded
through research by myself and assistance from other Blackwells. The
Memoirs are reprinted here for you to read.
Lois was born in 1841 and died in 1925. It was a full
and wonderful life
and her message is clear about what the
needs of the people were during those
times in order to survive and continue
to grow. It is a wonderful story of
the history of so many of
the pioneers of Canada and the United States.
If your family history involves the State of
Minnesota and parts of Ontario in
Canada, then I suggest you take a
pen and paper, as while you
read the Memoirs, you will find many family names
mentioned that Lois knew and
with. Her story would not be unlike other Pioneers, so
her words could be the words of many
those brave days of humanity and community builders.
The Memoirs of Lois Twichell are a gift to
the family so that they may know
and understand their beginnings.
