Dear Relatives,

I am Sharen Simmons, the wife of Jack Simmons who is the son of Grace Ellen Winterton who is the daughter of Sarah Van Wagoner. Our children have wished that the Van Wagoner Book, which was printed about 1967, could be available for all the descendants which did not have that opportunity to get a copy the first time. It was decided that we would make it available on the internet for all who would like to have these special stories and pictures. I would like to thank those ancestors that these stories were about for their special lives and dedication, and also those who worked so hard to gather these stories and pictures to share with us in the original book. As I retyped these stories I found a closeness with these ancestors and our Father in Heaven. I hope that you can feel the same closeness and renewing of the spirit as well. To access the genealogy of these ancestors go to .
May your heart be touched as was mine.

Sharen Simmons
