"Henry Born married Ida Dillabaugh from Montague, Michigan, in July, 1900. They had four children-two boys and two girls. They lived beside a beautiful trout lake in the San Juan Mountains about twenty miles above Pagosa Springs during the spring, summer, and early fall. They spent their winters in town." If this type of clean, factual, detailed historical writing appeals to you, I'd recommend More True Tales of Old-Time Kansas by David Dary for your reading pleasure.
