I think there is really a need to preserve our history because it is reported that the Department of Education recently found in its examination of public school students that more 4th grade pupils were proficient in U.S. history than high school seniors. I read this here: <a title="American history baffles most U.S. pupils" href="http://www.newsytype.com/7681-american-history/">Most American students not proficient in American history</a>.

Thanks for your research on the Engle's. I am beginning to research a painting by Nanene Queen Engle and your information has filled in some missing pieces.
