Description

OF OUR FATHERS' LEGACY is the history of Peter Webner who abandoned his homeland to seek freedom in early 1800's America. He lived in German-American towns of middle Pennsylvania, until his luck ran out -- he and his wife died leaving most of their children to be bound out until they became adults. What follows is a story told many times in the Land of Opportunity. Son David is released from his apprenticeship when he reaches the age of 21, travels to small town Smithville, Ohio, where the exciting, new railroad industry starts him in a new business. Soon, David's children all embrace a career involving the Iron Horse. Son Rush spans a 49-year career as railroad station master and operator. OF A FAMILY LEGACY also tells about life in middle Pennsylvania in the 1800's and in Ohio in the 1900's and the traditions of German-Americans. You meet mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters and follow their lives. And in the end, we learn just what legacy was inherited by their descendants.
