Leaning on the Everlasting Arms was written by one of my “cousins.” A thoughtful, considerate cousin (who shares my passion for family history) sent me the information and I rush to share it with my readers. That is one of my favorite old hymns!!
Truth be told: When I launched the search for my exact cousin connection to the author I found that I have some errors in my documentation (on Ancestry). So I’m off to climb another tree. (“The thoughtful, considerate cousin” has an enormous Showalter Family Tree.)
