    The Life of Edgar and Jennie Foy
    The Life of Edgar and Jennie Foy
    This is a book about Irish and German immigrants, who settled in the midwest during the 1800's. Their true story is compelling and rich in detail about the trials and tribulations, the successes and most importantly, the family. Through wars, depressions, disease, tornadoes, fires, crop failure, boom and bust, they lived that quintessential American dream. The search for our past is a never-ending journey, that we all must take, in our own way. It is with pride that I share this story of Edgar and Jennie Foy, my great-grandparents, so that our future generations can know where they came from.
