My Homesteader's Heritage
My Homesteader’s Heritage is an account of the bravery and perseverance of two families who left family and friends in Europe to immigrate and homestead in Canada. They overcame the difficulties and hardships of a frontier land to pass on a legacy of faith, determination, hard work, and success for their children to follow and emulate.
The Croswell and Stebner families originated from two differing cultures and countries, but they came together in 1943 when Leonard married Ella. It’s a miniature story of pioneering in Canada and the blending together of differing customs and traditions. My Homesteader’s Heritage is about waving goodbye to the “old country” to welcome a new way of life in a new land of opportunity.
