Nancy Bellzona's Picture Book
The Brewer's - The Hymnal

The HymnalThis little hymnal has a lovely story to tell all its own.  It is a story about the love these women had for each other and for their children.  There was an old poem Bellzona saved which said,  "she would have died for her sons."   Velma Jones, Bellzona's daughter in law said,  "that told the story about Bellzona, she would have too."  This is nothing unusual or rare but rather is very much what the women all did.  They fought lonely battles, fortified with a Bible and if fortunate a hymnal like this.  They trusted in a higher power to take them through the struggles of the early days before super markets,  day care,  women's rights, and even counselors. Some of the other things saved of Elizabeth Brewer Collins, Mrs Nathaniel Stewart Collins were old fragile one page letters, her old Bible, and a few pictures. Her mother, America Brewer, Mrs. John Brewer is on the 1870 census at Bolivar, Missouri, Polk county.
