A birthright Quaker, born and raised on a farm at Milton, IN,in Wayne County which is the location of Earlham College. My mother and sister were graduates. My father was from a Hicksite family and my mother from an Orthodox family. While we have experienced the unprogrammed Friends Meeting, my wife and I are members of an interdenominational church in East Lansing, MI. I have just published a book entitled, "Mary Jane Whiteley Coggeshall, Hicksite Quaker, Iowa/National Suffragette and Her Speeches." She was a sister of my great grandmother and was also born and raised on a farm at Milton, IN.
