In the era of the Civil War, a major cash crop on the Albert Gallatin Steele farm near Sibley in Jackson County, Missouri, was hemp for making rope. The letters tell of the hemp stored in a warehouse at Sibley Landing. Those Civil War troubles were dwarfed by the illness and deaths of the Steele boys. Within these covers you will read the letters, see the portraits and documents kept by the family. You will share in the family memories as you read “Our Far Away Boys.” Included are some genealogical records and information about the Steele, Boone, Chiles and Hughes families. Numerous pictures of family members and historical documents. Softbound, 92 pages and an index. Price $8.00 plus shipping and handling of $3.99.
