   The Old Baptist Church essay from the end of the book.

   Many of the GAR veterans in the county are listed in the miscllaneous section.

   You can download the entire book (19MB) in a single file here.  This is a much larger file, but you may enjoy reading all of the stories / biographies
These files are all in Adobe Acrobat format (PDF). 

If you don't already have one, you can get a free PDF reader called Foxit here  It is smaller and has more features than the free Adobe Acrobat reader.

The download size of Foxit Reader is only 2.1 MB which is a fraction of Acrobat Reader 22 MB size. When you run Foxit Reader, it launches instantly without any delay. You are not forced to view an annoying splash window displaying company logo, author names, etc. Annotation tool: Foxit Reader allows you to draw graphics, highlight text, type text and make notes on a PDF document and then print out or save the annotated document

However, if you prefer the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, go to  ADOBE

(Personally, I would uncheck and decline to install the google toobar that comes with it.)

Thank You to Bob Ray who gave me permission to put this book in electronic form and put it up on the internet quite a few years ago.  I originally hoped to put it in text format, but as I am not much of a typist, I had to resort to either PDF or JPG format,

I know that Bob knew my grandparents, Alice and Asa Wolfe who were part of Red Willow County's history and avid in preserving it's stories.
The Index of names lists most of the women by their maiden name, but then the bios are placed alphabetically by their married names.  I have tried to link the names to the section of the book that contains their actual biographies.
