Re-intro to Swallow Tales;  “Sent Away “

Can you imagine how it would be if you were sent away?  Away from your home, family and friends.  Seeing a billowing steam engine for the first time. Loudly rolling into the Rushville Nebraska train depot.

Traveling 1617 miles and only 14 years old. This is what happened to my grandpa Oliver Swallow. He was not to return for 5 or 6 years. How did he end up at the Lincoln Institute in Pennsylvania? Just a glimpse of family history from 1870 to 1884. This personal story deserves to be told.
