Transcript - Farewell Sinks Deeply Into the Heart

Music: TWAS IN THE SPRING OF '52 THAT WE LEFT TENNESSEE. LEAVING MY DEAR MOTHER WHO I NEVER MORE WILL SEE. AND MY FRIENDS I THOUGHT MY HEART WOULD BREAK TO LEAVE THEM ALL BEHIND FOR MY HUSBAND'S GREAT ADVENTURE, HIS FORTUNE FOR TO FIND.

Voice Over: WHO DOES NOT RECOLLECT THEIR FIRST NIGHT WHEN STARTED ON A LONG JOURNEY. THE WELL KNOWN VOICES OF OUR FRIENDS STILL RINGING IN OUR EARS. THE PARTING KISS STILL WARM UPON OUR LIPS AND THE LAST SEPARATING WORD "FAREWELL!" SINKS DEEPLY INTO THE HEART. (GRAPHIC: LODISA FRIZZEL 1852 #7709)

John Mack Faragher: - EMIGRANTS VS IMMIGRANTS JOYCE - SPIRITUAL AMPUTATION FOR MANY WOMEN

Voice Over: I WAS STANDING BY ONE OF THE WAGONS, I WENT AROUND ON THE OTHER SIDE WHERE WOULDN'T ANYBODY SEE ME AND I WAS STANDING THERE CRYING AND FATHER COME ALONG AND HE JUST PICK ME UP AND HE SET ME UP IN THE WAGON. (SO I FELT BETTER WHEN I GOT UP THERE SOME WAY, I FELT MORE PROTECTED. ) I JUST FELT DESERTED SOME WAY. (GRAPHIC: VOICE OF LILY DIXON WILLIAMS, PIONEER OF 1880)
