Memories of an Unremarkable Woman
My name is Elizabeth Rachel Henderson and I am indeed an unremarkable woman but I have lived through remarkable times and have met many remarkable people including my husband. And now I can claim five remarkable children, grandchildren and two great grandchildren. I am writing down my memories for their benefit. They won't always be in strict chronological order and I expect them to be sometimes incorrect or inaccurate. But I shall try to set them out in some sort of readable fashion.
