 USATODAY.com - Excerpt from 'Blackbird House'   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
John's sloop was small, his desires were few: he wanted to give his wife this house, nothing fancy, but carefully made all the same, along with the acreage around it, a meadow filled with wild grapes and winterberry.
Wood for building was hard to come by, so John had used old wrecked boats for the joists, deadwood he'd found in the shipyard, and when there was none of that to be had, he used fruitwood he'd culled from his property, though people insisted applewood and pear wouldn't last.
John's son Vincent was a big help in the building of the house, just as he was out at sea, and because of this they would soon be able to move out of the rooms they let at Hannah Crosby's house.

Although he was concerned about the political future of Kansas, Hadley emigrated to the territory in order to take part in a most unusual experiment -- the establishment of a vegetarian colony on the banks of the Neosho river in southeastern Kansas.
Prior to his marriage, Hadley was unsolicitedly nominated and elected sheriff of Johnson county and served three terms.
However, the incompetency of surveyors, together with a blundering administration in Washington, retarded progress to such a degree that a year and a half after the territory was opened to settlement not a single township was reported to have been completed.

What the good people of Hadley did not know was that their minister, John Russell, had been secretly housing two men, General Edward Whalley and General William Goffe, for eleven years - since 1664.
John Russell secreted the men in his house and never revealed their presence.
So, even though General Goffe did not save Hadley in 1675 and therefore was not the Angel of Hadley perhaps both Generals Whalley and Goffe would have thought Reverend John Russell was their special savior and, therefore, could be called the Angel of Hadley.
