Anthony Showalter

We finally finished Anthony Showalter’s story, or at least what we could find on him. He had a pretty dedicated life, but something went wrong towards the end. He remarried while his elderly wife was still alive, and she had to move in with a daughter in Texas. Who the other woman was, is not mentioned, but it does not look good. How could a guy that was pushing sacred hymns all his life end on such a sour note, or is there more to the story? It will be interesting to see if more information comes out in the future.

Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

Last week we assembled an article on the hymn, “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.” This precious hymn has an interesting story behind it.

However, on looking to clear out old articles, we came across an article Deborah had written on the subject! Our new article had the facts, and more detail, but we did not have the comment about animals. So we copied her paragraph and pasted it into the new article and made her a co-author. If you read the article last week, take another look and read the addition. She makes a very good point.

Elisha Hoffman

Well, we just rewrote another set of articles and got them uploaded. We had some delays, since our website hosting company moved our server to another facility at the same time! But it looks like the big move is over, and our pages are now displaying again, just a lot faster than before!

Elisha Hoffman was quite a guy, and we hope we added a bit more detail than most have found. We also redid the graphic so that it is a bit more friendly to the eyes than before.

Along with him, was a couple hymns and their story. To see the new pages, use the following links:
