Synopsis of Westons in Western Iowa

(Return to Westons in Western Iowa front page)

Our story begins as a caravan of Weston family members arrives at what will become their new home on the prairie in Western Iowa, among the early pioneers of Carrol and Greene Counties. Interactions with new neighbors and among the various family members generate conflict and opportunities as some adapt to the new environment more successfully that others. Some early arrivals are challenged by the infringements inherent in the arrival of newcomers, even when they are members of your own family.
