you will find links to the Franklyn Bearce manuscript
"From Out of the Past"
Who Our Forefather's Really Were
A Narrative of Our White and Indian Ancestors
Franklyn's Indian name was Ela-wa-tum or Swimming Eel and he dedicated this manuscript to his son Mark Carl Bearce who passed away 11 years prior.
I decided to scan the handwritten document so that other's could try their luck at deciphering his handwriting too.
