If you are fortunate enough to have a dear grandpa or other elder in your family, make every effort to visit with them and let them talk to you...don't let a wonderful and rewarding opportunity slip away. The memories from those times can last a lifetime.                                                                                                 Take Care, Judy Tate

REMNANTS, PLENTY AND LEAN

A book on the genealogy of the Edgmon Family...

"During the Middle Ages the feudal system reigned in many regions, including the area of today's Netherlands, the homeland of our Van Egmond ancestors. Some held title of lord, duke, or count. Others held lessor title or placement in the pyramid of social existence. From medieval times and forward, many of our ancestors worked the soil, planted, tended, and harvested the investments of their labor. If yields were good, plenty was at hand for the family. When the yield of harvest was lean, they made do with what they had. Through times of plenty and times of lean, they took care of themselves, shared when they were able, and loved one another. The love that my Grandpa Leither Edgmon had for his family and neighbors is to be admired. I will always admire him and I cherish all time spent with him and cherish the memories that he gave me. His ability to convey the recollections of folks and happenings of the past, in a warm hearted, factual manner, is ever present in my mind. Visions of him packing tobacco into the bowl of one of his many pipes bring back the anticipation of his renditions that would unfold as the smoke would curl above his head. He often whistled a hearty tune as he worked and talked of dear folks or would be heard singing an old hymn with eyes full of tears when memories of lost loved ones lay heavy on his heart..."
