A biography in pictures
Many pictures will appear on this page in the weeks to come, handful by handful: a graphic novel by the 4-year-old Laurie, recent notable ancestry, first report card, illuminating stuff.
Laurie's paternal great-grandmother, Viola Sharpless, the daughter of a woman who participated (alone) in the Oklahoma Land Rush, was a missionary in Hawaii, and used to plow the fields with a Colt revolver stuck in her waistband in case she had to fight off some bandits.
