Swainsboro native Ron Seckinger is publishing true stories about his grandmother’s generation at http://ronseckinger.com. “Emanuel’s Children: Stories of a Southern Family” follows the lives of eight siblings born in Emanuel County between 1888 and 1913. The eight were Jessie Stroud Fields, Jewel Stroud Hooks, Emmit Stroud, Denver Stroud, Marjorie Stroud Scott, Kermit Stroud, Alice Stroud Mitchell, and Maude Stroud Moreno. The combined stories also constitute a history of Swainsboro and Emanuel County during the first half of the 20th century.
Emmitt Stroud, boilermaker for the Southern Railway, settles in Somerset, Ky. about 1923. His story unreels in “Railroad Man,” the 15th posting in “Emanuel’s Children: Stories of a Southern Family.” Be sure to check it out!
