Abstract: This story begins and ends with Cotton Grove, a place where I have never lived, never even spent a night. Yet the magic of Cotton Grove has captured the imagination of my family for some 60 years following our removal from it, and the attempt to examine its role in our heritage seems likely to occupy my thoughts for many days to come. In part it is a search to discover the world of my ancestors, including my father, who was born there in 1913, his father born in 1887 and his grandfather, born in 1837. More than that, however, it has become a rediscovery of the love for learning and for history that has characterized my family for many generations.
