On this day, 13 July 1719, Anna Barbara (Sturm) Lang passed away. She was my 8th great-grandmother.
Unfortunately, little is known about her life. What is known is that she was born in 1654 in Schifferstadt, a town located in the Bishopric of Speyer (modern-day Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany). Her parents’ names are unknown.
Sunny summer days of my yesteryears lumbered and lulled. Hours hung heavy in the humid air.
To occupy those drawn-out dog days, I dangled my tiny toes in trickling streams, carved crooked creatures in cracking mud, climbed creaking limbs of ancient oaks, and imagined dragons cavorting in cotton ball clouds.
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honahlee.
