A Pioneer's Search for an Ideal Home: A Book of Personal Memoirs

By Phoebe Goodell Judson | Go to book overview

CONCLUSION

I wish the reader to understand that upwards of seventy years have elapsed since my husband and myself, our little daughter Annie (now Mrs. Ebey), and son La Bonta, born en route, crossed the continent in an emigrant wagon. Through these many years, first in the territory and later in the state of Washington, we have passed through many trials, through sorrow and hardships, only to learn that "perfect love casteth out all fear," and all the evil fortunes we have experienced have been as nothing compared to the blessings we have enjoyed. God was with us all the way, leading us to this beautiful Nooksack valley, abounding in picturesque scenery with its background of snow-capped mountains--a continual feast for the soul. Here we found the place to build our "ideal home" and it is here I am still living in my ninety-fifth year, under the shade of the wide spreading maples my husband planted after clearing the ground of the many huge majestic fir trees that so thickly studded it, a slow and laborious task with the unscientific implements in use in those days.

Words cannot express the happiness I have enjoyed living in my humble home, amid these beautiful surroundings, with my two eldest children, Annie and La Bonta, who tenderly care for me. My grand, great grand and great great grand children, my adopted ones and my nephews and nieces living in Washington and California often visit and cheer Grandma Judson, making the pioneer home joyful with their presence.
