Last night I couldn't sleep so I got up and began to lay out the book about my great, great grandfather, Rev. Seth Gold Clark. It is going to be 12-14 chapters and written from him thinking about events as he travels to and from Missouri on 3 different trips.
He helped rebuild the churches along the Missouri/Kansas border. Among the towns where he established churches is Holden, Butler, Raymore, Harrisonville, Greenwood, Lamar and Appleton City in Missouri and Iola, Carlyle, Baxter Springs, Galena and Empire, in Kansas. He was also the Financial Agent for the first college in Kansas, Highland University and at that time began what was called a missionary tent outfit in Northern Kansas and Southern Nebraska.
My idea is write from his perspective about the lessons he learned during different times in his life.
The title of the book is "Possibly Some Good Will Result" with sub-title The life of Seth Gold Clark “a very busy, checkered life;”
