Family Letters - provided by Bill Smith (Solon, IA)

Here are four 1830s-1850s letters written by Mary Ann Dickinson Hall and Justus Marshall Dickinson. They give a picture of what life was like in what was considered the western edge of US civilization at the time. It was very hard at times. The following files are in PDF format. The introduction provides relationship information, a link to the family tree on RootsWeb and contact information for Bill if you would like to connect.
