    1. I kind of hate to give this book such a mediocre rating, since it is about relatives on the maternal side of my family (through marriage, not blood, I believe). This is the second time I've read this book. All in all, the first 2/3 of the book are pretty enthralling. After that, and in retrospect I now remember feeling this way the first time I read the book, things get pretty darn confusing. So many new, ancillary characters are introduced that it is really difficult to keep everyone straight. [...]


    2. This book is about my great-great grandmother and i love reading it. I give it a 5. My name is Kassey Laura Jones Wheeler. I would like to talk to anyone related to her. enterprise.2@juno or kassl24@yahoo


    3. A 97% accurate book about my Great, Great, Grandmother and her family. It also includes facts about Billy the Kid and his association with my family, the Joneses.
