A reminiscence of Grace Irons Haggenjos as related by her daughter Irma Louise Hagganjos.
My Mother was very proud that her great grandfather was a minister and he "rode circuit". He represented God on horseback. He carried a rifle for hunting and a knife for dressing of the animals that he killed for food. Other than that he was alone in the wilderness with God's protections. Indians respected him and never caused him fear. He slept in the forests and opens between and the long rides between settlements where he was invited as an honored guest.
She said that they were very old people but very loving of each other. He was tall and thin and that she was rather like a dumpling with a little white lace bonnet on her snow white hair. She called him "my dear" or "my dear husband" whenever she spoke of him or to him. They held hands at the table, or when sitting. She had flowers in the vegetable garden and jam and biscuits on the shelf. They had a few chickens and a cow and a calf.
