Mary Jane Boren Meeker grew up surrounded by the extended family of powerful business people and civic leaders, but what she remembers most vividly from her childhood is the ordinary family talk about ancestors who were humble Quakers, farmers, and dreaming entrepreneurs. Time and again conversations on the broad porch in Greensboro turned to her family’s Quaker roots and to the story of a fourteen-year-old boy who refused to go with his parents to Indiana in the 1830s but, when the Civil War broke out, walked all the way to join them. By the twentieth century, the Borens had become owners and operators of companies that shipped brick and ceramic products throughout the nation.The author ponders the people and forces that shaped her family, what America gave them and what they returned to their country and their community.
