Turned out, I stole it! Many years later a big storm went through Kansas City and a tree limb fell on my parents' outdoor shed. They had stored a lot of "excess" stuff from my room in that shed and asked me to come over to save what I could. In one box I found several high school memories and my mysterious missing Kuhn family book. Unfortunately, the fallen limb had smashed the box open and the book was soaked. I left it out for a week and let it dry out, but the pages were now molded and brittle. However, I couldn't bear to part with my little bit of history.
Flash forward another 10 years and my patience and persistence in tracking down another version of the book have come to fruition. A cousin brought to my attention that the Allison-Antrim Museum in Greencastle, Pennsylvania had a digital copy available online. Fantastic! Thanks to cousin M and to the Allison-Antrim Museum for bringing back this little bit of me!
