END OF THE LINE
Your family is a blessing. Brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, moms and dads. Your heritage, those bonds that tie. This is what brought Linda and me to Indiahoma. To explore and honor the Lindgren name. To recognize the sacrifices required of their pioneer living. To experience as closely as possible the footsteps of my ancestors.
Why is this important to me? The Lindgren line is now nearing its end. I’ve contributed a son Miles. He has been estranged from me for over a decade, settling for the comforts of his doting, coddling mother. It still saddens me that he’ll only know a fouled, regurgitated opinion of his father. As a stay at home dad for 20 years that sting will never leave. Still, he does provide the only opportunity to extend the name.
My brother Jim did not provide an offspring. The only other males from the immediate lineage are cousins Carl Frank and Ivan. Bachelors, no seeds from those trees.
It thus appears that the Lindgren story will begin and end in Indiahoma.
