The book describes frontier families who stabilized the Indiana frontier when they settled on native land while they overcame diseases, early deaths, and the uncertainties and challenges of nineteenth century farming.

Kimballs arrived in 1634 during the Puritans’ Migration, and Joneses appeared in Delaware in the early 1700s. Sarah survived river bandits and hostile Indians before moving to Indiana Territory, and Hullum walked from North Carolina to Indiana where they met and married in 1819. They settled in Indiana’s southwestern corner, where they suffered lean years, diseases, and early deaths even while they observed remarkable changes in transportation and scientific achievement. They farmed, raised a family, and prospered as examples of Americans who stabilized the frontier. This book describes their heritages and ancestors, and their lives, children, and the generations that flowed from their marriage.
