I have posted two more pieces on my new blog, We Are Such Stuff IV!
1942: Dad promoted to midshipman, a continuation of my father’s letters to my mother when he was in New York during naval training; and
Thomas prepares for the ministry, 1802-1806, which is the second installment of the first chapter of my book on my family ancestry. In this excerpt, the Rev. Thomas Thomas (my 3-greats grandfather) studies at Hoxton Academy – his first formal education at the age of 26! – where he trains to be a Independent minister.
