It's Pioneer Day! Sadly, I am in Utah now and away from the fun parade and musical that marks the 24th of July weekend every year. However, I thought I'd share a story I wrote about my great-great grandmother, Matilda Stolworthy Staker. Some of you may have already read it, because it was published in the October 2010 issue of the Friend, but I thought I'd share "New Shoes for Tillie" with you anyway. :)
Enjoy! It always makes me appreciate my pioneer ancestors more each time I read it.
