"My Heart Returns to Home", Ozark Stories, by Margaret Hancock Montgomery, is a book about her family and friends. She taught school at Black School in Barry County and is a descendant of Rev. Golman Buford and Mary Minerva (Burris) Hancock.
You can step into her life as a rural school teacher and see what it was like, as she remembers it, in Black School in the late forties.
She talks about her father, mother and grandparents in the book and shares her memories of growing up in the Ozarks.
Margaret and I have common ancestors, G. B. & Mary, and so we are distant cousins.
