IT HAPPENED OVER 125 YEARS AGO...
It happened over 125 years ago when my pioneering great-great-grandmother, Lillie May Busby, drove her covered wagon across Oklahoma through Texas with her 17 children. Although they were poor, my family knew how to make do with very little. They produced enough food to feed the whole family along their journey through unchartered territory.
