Descrizione

Youngest daughter of Theodore Gilbert, the Valley Pioneer, wife of Solomon Rogers, born in the Old red house, 'mid the crash and roar of falling forest trees, the mephitic smoke of charcoal pit, and the roaring, crackling blaze of brush heap and fallow, where in Childhood's sunny hours, she gleefully sported at hide and seek among the stumps of the new cleared lot, now tastefully laid out in well kept plots and lawns, tenderly enshrined with flowers or deciduous and ever green shrubbery, close-shaved mounds of beautiful green dot the hillside, beneath which, one by one gathered home, sweetly sleep her once gleesome childhood playmates — now the Valley Cemetery. Generations have come and gone; the wild tangled forest steadily yielding to the sturdy hand Of toil, gave place to villages, grown up beneath her gaze, with clattering mills, busy teeming factories; churches, schools and homesteads. Where the ox-cart slowly creaked along, the shrieking locomotive, in mighty grandeur, now goes thundering by, flanked with a network of wire, flashing in telligence on lightning borne. In the pleasant evening of life, Old age creeping gently on, not yet resigning the active duties so long and well performed, in every walk of life; in church, neighborhood, sickness, death or the home circle, ever gentle, faithful, kind and cheery; a true type of the American wife and mother — the tenderest and best of mothers — this volume is lovingly inscribed, by her affectionate son.
