THE GODLESS MEN

by Matt Cutugno

In the classic American Western-style, veteran author Matt Cutugno weaves a riveting story of two men struggling to survive in the days following the Civil War in his new novel, THE GODLESS MEN. The time is 1868. Three short years after the awful destruction caused by the war. The place is the Kansas-Missouri border. A land savaged by years of bloody fighting.

Two men share a common past. First as boys riding for the famed Pony Express; then as soldiers bravely serving opposing sides in battle. One blue. One gray. When the war was over, they each sought new lives. One became the sheriff of Lawrence, Kansas. He is a good, though lonely, man who sought peace in troubling times. The other, a rebel from Missouri, now a hired gun, who found himself a wanted man, accused of terrible crimes.

Destiny brings them together again in THE GODLESS MEN as their lives play out against a backdrop of the post-war exploitation of the West. Railroads rule the day as the seemingly endless prairie becomes more civilized, driving the Indians further from their ancestral homes, while slaughtering the vast herds of wild buffalo. Moneyed and greedy men are everywhere. They pull the strings and call the shots.

Amidst such volatile days, can a sheriff find contentment in the law and can an outlaw find solace running from it? Only time and fate will tell.

The Catholic Contribution to Child Labor

by Shea Hasenauer

This eBook looks at the Catholic contribution to child labor advocacy during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This was an important time because industrialization was spreading throughout the world.

The Church contributed through official encyclicals Rerum Novarum (1891) and Quadragesimo Anno (1931) as well as through individuals’ actions and legislative proposals. The main contribution may have been the solidification of the Living Wage family modelâ??one main breadwinner as opposed to all family members working full timeâ??which allowed children to be educated and mature over a healthier period of time.

    Family Genealogy Queries: COLE COLEMAN (Southern Genealogical Research)

    by R. Stephen Smith

    The family information in this book comes from a genealogy magazine published during the 1990s, now out of print. Contents of this volume include all queries from the magazine mentioning individuals or families surnamed COLEMAN (with 26 queries total), COLE (23 queries), COLEY (7 queries), COLES (1 query), or COLESON (1 query).

    The focus is families in the southern United States.

    Genealogy queries such as these have long been a means for family researchers to share information. Although they were written by persons seeking information, the wealth of detail in them could prove valuable if you’re working on the same names or lines.

    Typically, queries include information on births, deaths, marriages, children of a given couple, family migrations, etc. Some trace several generations of one family. Some even include colorful family stories passed down through the years!

    Note: If you aren’t sure if the information in this book will be useful to your particular family research, why not borrow and read it for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription?

    Other surnames occurring incidentally in the queries reproduced in this volume include ABEL, ADAMS, AKIN, ALDEN, ALEXANDER, ALLEN, ALLUMS, ANDERSON, BACONS, BAIRD, BAKER, BALLOU, BARNES, BARNETT, BARRETT, BARTON, BASHAW, BASS, BATES, BAUGH, BAXTER, BEAN, BEARD, BEASLEY, BEDDOW, BELIEU, BEVERLEY, BLAIR, BOLDING, BOOHER, BOSSIC, BOTTOMS, BOYLSTON, BROOKS, BROWDER, BROWN, BROWNING, BRYANT, BURFORD, BURGE, BURNS, BURR, BURRESS, BURTON, BUSIC, CAIN, CALLAHAN, CALLENDER, CALLIHAM, CAMBRON, CAMERON, CAMP, CANNON, CARLTON, CARNES, CARPENTER, CARR, CARSON, CARTER, CASTLE, CHAPMAN, CHENEY, CHEW, CHISM, CLAYTON, CLEMENTS, COLLEY, COLLIER, COMBS, COMER, COOK, COTNEY, COX, CRAIG, CRITCHER, CROSSLAND, CRUTCHER, CUMMINGS, CURLING, DANIEL, DARBY, DARE, DASHIELL, DAVIS, DAY, DEAN, DEDMAN, DEDMON, DEPP, DEVERO, DEVINE, DODSON, DUBOIS, DUCKETT, DUKE, DUNCAN, DUNN, DUPUY, DURHAM, EAKIN, EGBERT, ELLIOT, ELLIS, ENGLISH, ESTES, ETHERIDGE, EVANS, FABIAN, FICKLE, FILES, FINCHER, FINNIE, FLEENOR, FLETCHER, FLOYD, FORSYTH, FRAKER, FRIEND, FULGHAM, FULLERTON, GARDINER, GARRETT, GILBERT, GILL, GLENN, GOFF, GOODWIN, GORDY, GOUGH, GRATON, GRIDER, GRIGGS, GRISHAM, GRISSOM, GROVER, GULLIAM, GUNNELL, HAGERMAN, HAGOOD, HALFORD, HALL, HALSEY, HAMPTON, HANBY, HANER, HANEY, HANKINS, HARDING, HARGRAVES, HARGROVE, HARRIS, HAY, HENDRIX, HIGGINBOTHAM, HINTON, HOGAN, HOLIFIELD, HOLLADAY, HOLLOWAY, HORNBECK, HORTON, HOUSTON, HOWARD, HOWELL, HUDSON, HUGHES, HURST, HUSSON, INGRAM, JACKSON, JAMES, JEFFERSON, JOHNS, JOHNSON, JOHNSTON, JOINER, JONES, JOYCE, KARNES, KAYLOR, KILLGORE, KIRKENDALL, KOOL, KUYKENDALL, LAKE, LANIER, LARKIN, LASSETER, LAWRENCE, LEE, LEWIS, LILLY, LINCOLN, LINDSAY, LIVINGSTON, LOCKETT, LOCKHART, LONG, LOVE, LOWE, LOYD, LUDLOW, LUTTRELL, MACKENZIE, MADDEAUX, MADDOX, MALLARD, MALLORY, MANGHAM, MANNING, MANSON, MARION, MARSHALL, MARTIN, MASS, McCALL, McCARTY, McDANIEL, McFADDEN, McGRAW, McGREGOR, McHOWELL, MEADOR, MEADOWS, MILES, MILLER, MITCHELL, MITCHNER, MOBLEY, MONTAGUE, MOODY, MOORER, MORGAN, MORRISON, MOSELEY, MOSS, MOTT, MURRAY, MYRICK, NANCE, NEWMAN, NORRIS, NORSWORTHY, NUNNELLY, PAINTER, PARHAM, PATTERSON, PAYNE, PEARSON, PEMBERTON, PENNY, PERRY, PETERSON, PHILLIPS, PICKERING, PLEDGER, POTTER, POUNDS, PRINCE, PUGH, QUICK, QUINBY, QUINCY, RAINBOW, RAINES, RAWLS, REDDING, REEVES, REMBO, RINGGOLD, ROBBINS, ROBERSON, ROBERTSON, ROBINSON, RODGERS, ROGERS, ROUTON, ROWE, RUDE, RUST, SAMPLES, SAMPLEY, SANDERS, SANDLIN, SAVAGE, SCARBOROUGH, SCOTT, SHEPPARD, SHIPMAN, SHUMATE, SLADE, SMITH, SNEAD, SQUIRE, STENT, STEPHENS, STOKES, STORM, STRANGE, SWAYZE, SWISHER, TACK, TALPEY, TARVER, TATUM, TAYLOR, TERRY, THOMAS, THOMPSON, THWEAT, TILLISON, TIMBERMAN, TINDALL, TINSLEY, TISON, TRACEY, TRYSLETT, TUCKER, UPSHAW, VANCE, VAUGHN, VERNON, VEST, WAGGONER, WALKER, WALL, WALLACE, WALLER, WALTER, WALTON, WARD, WARE, WEST, WESTFALL, WHEELER, WHITE, WHITT, WIGGINS, WILLIAMS, WILLIAMSON, WILLIS, WILLS, WILSON, WINN and others.
