About Me
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 two books entitled, "Mary Jane Whiteley Coggeshall, Hicksite Quaker, Iowa/National Suffragette and Her Speeches" and "Benjamin Ferris -- A True Renaissance Man (Father of Delaware History, Quaker Leader, Architect and More)".

I am working on another book about a Quaker which will be published later this year. He was the second cousin of my great great grandfather. The tentative title is Benjamin Ferris (1780-1867) -- A True Renaissance Man (Delaware Historian, Hicksite Quaker Leader, Architect and More)

My book on Benjamin Ferris will be on Amazon in a few weeks or now at Kids At Heart Publishing LLC at www.kidsatheartpublishing.com where my book on Mary Jane Coggeshall is also available and on Amazon.
