My Great Granny
By Jane Runyon

1     My great-great granny was quite a woman. Her name was Sarah. She had a twin sister named Susan. They were born over 200 years ago. When they grew up, they got married. Their husbands were twins, too. They lived in Virginia. Both families decided to move west. They heard there was good farm land in the Indiana Territory.
2     Sarah and her husband, John, built a cabin near a river. It was a big river. Settlers traveled down the river to new homes. Indians canoed down the river looking for fish and furs.
3     Sarah and John started a small farm on their new land. They watched the people on the river. They decided to start a store on the banks of the river. All of the people who traveled the river needed supplies. They believed their store could sell the supplies the people needed.
