This is a neat story, and you did a great job of bringing it to life. Keep up the good work!
Well done. It's so great that this story is true.
Well done. This story was well-written and it was even better because of being true.
I love getting to the end of an enjoyable story, and discovering that it is true.
Well done. This was great.
Neat story! What makes it better is that it's true! There was one confusing sentence in the second paragraph. I'm sure you could find it if you re-read it. It was towards the end. But otherwise, very good! Keep up the good work!
Definitely a neat story to tell - and know is part of your own history. Very cool. Enjoyed this a lot!
It's a wonderful family story, to be sure, and I thank you for sharing it with us.

The title foreshadows the ending of the story...and once I read the 2nd paragraph, I knew the preacher would find the family. I wonder if there'd be some way to tell this to give it a surprise ending?

Your story is a treasure; I hope it gets passed on to many more generations.
So cool that this is a true story.
Beautiful story. Good writing.
Picture-Perfect writing! Great story!
