names, etc of the Shawhan/Earnest family relationships and in calling

to mind many stories involving her Mother, Pearl. One such story,

sworn to by the family, is the tale of the "Angel's Visit". This

occurred while the family was living in a little cabin in the Laurel

Lee mining camp. It was pouring rain outside, towards dusk, when they

heard a knock on the door and Pearl answered it to find outside a

little old man, with white hair, in a blue shirt, and with bright blue

eyes -- she was surprised to see him completely dry even though it was

raining extremely hard. He explained that he was looking for a place

to stay for a short while, had knocked on several other doors, but had

been told that he should come to Pearl's house to find shelter. He and

Pearl talked about many things while she fixed him some food,

discovering that he had been everywhere she had been. He accepted her

offer for him to stay the night, and when she arose early the next

morning she called to him to stay in bed until she got the stove going

and fixed some breakfast -- he responded affirmatively. There were two

doors in the little cabin, the front door and straight ahead a back

door -- both doors were easily visible. After she had fixed some

breakfast, Pearl called for the little gentleman to join her, only to

discover that he had disappeared -- neither she nor the children had

seen him go. In checking with the neighbors, Pearl could find noone

who recalled seeing him the night before. In her mind he was an angel

who had decided to visit them, in keeping with her religious faith

that you should never turn away someone at your door because it could

be an angel. Phyllis also recalled her Mother's great cooking,

including the eggs and mushrooms cooked for breakfast, with cornbread

-- mushrooms picked fresh by her Mother and carried into the house in

her apron. She likewise remembered the yellow cake made with duck

eggs. Phyllis is employed as a florist and her husband, John, is

amaintenance man with the Levittsburg, Ohio school system. They are

vein, he has developed a "Grandpa's Book Report Program", featuring a

list of more than 2800 books that he uses in contests to prompt the

children to become readers and develop their knowledge of culture and

history -- e.g. bios, biblical readings, best sellers, youth books,

etc; their book reports result in small financial incentives from

grandpa to read further. There have been six grandchildren who

participate in the program -- Kelly, Meghan, Leigh Anne, Kerry,

Matthew, and Courtney. Also, every year, Wilbur distributes "Pages of

Time", a kind of "You Are There" approach recapturing births,

marriages, local/national news, tornadoes, songs, temperatures, and

other items of interest to the family that occurred during that

They were married in Feb. 1998 in Maryland. Her name is Rita Jacqueline Soete of O'Fallon. Randall (#1 son isn't married). No grandchildren.
