Marjorie Eldred

Author Marjorie Eldredabout this book: Seizing the Treasure is a family history book with emphasis on story. Lists of names in a family tree have never interested me much, and until I learned the story and thought of combining it with the names, I didn't have much to do with genealogy. This book features my family ancestors as well as my family; multigenerational, you might say. My mother, Marion Kilpatrick is the main character. The rest all revolves around her. You will love my mother, Marion, as everyone did who knew her. I got serious about writing this family story when Mom moved in with us in 2003. Eight years later the story was past history.

The picture on the cover features my mother and dad before they left the Dust Bowl in the early 1930's.

Yes, I did spend a lot of time in research. The internet had very little about Two Buttes, Colorado or Dr. Verity; the home town and local doctor who played an important part in Marion's life. Two of my cousins and I traveled to Two Buttes, I read incessantly, and made phone calls to residents of the now tiny town where my parents met and married. The research was half the fun of writing the book!
