Mapping the Characters

This is a first attempt at mapping out the characters and where they fit into the series.  I sometimes cross series, so that complicates matters.  I might have to hand write it out and scan it as a pdf document. 

The Nebraska Series (First Generation)

Ma and Pa Larson have six children: Richard, Sally, Tom, Dave, Jenny, and Joel.

A Bride for Tom – Tom Larson marries Jessica 

A Husband for Margaret – Joseph Connealy marries Margaret

Eye of the Beholder – Dave Larson marries Mary

The Wrong Husband – Jenny Larson marries Owen Russell

Shotgun Groom – Joel Larson marries April

His Redeeming Bride -Neil Craftsman marries Sarah

Second Generation in the Nebraska Series  (not in order)

Dave and Mary Larson have eight children: Isaac, Elizabeth, Adam, Jacob, Rose, Harriett, and two more that I haven’t named yet

Isaac’s Decision – Isaac Larson marries Emily Craftsman

untitled – Rose Larson marries Jonathan (from Bride of Second Chances)

untitled – Doug and Bob Connealy (the children from A Husband from Margaret) fight over Rachel Larson; Bob wins and marries her

untitled – Doug Connealy has to marry Harriett Larson (has to being the key words)

untitled – Adam Larson marries someone (not sure yet)

untitled – Jacob Larson (owns the mercantile after Ralph Lindon sells it to him) marries someone

untitled – another Larson kid gets married

untitled – another Larson kid gets married

South Dakota Series (First Generation)

Loving Eliza – John Evans marries Eliza

Bid for a Bride – Brian Evans marries Lucy

Bride of Second Chances – Jeremy Graham marries Jane

South Dakota Series (Second Generation)

not sure yet, but I see doing stories based on Jeremy and Jane’s and Brian and Lucy’s children

I might pair up their children with one of Todd and Ann’s from Falling In Love With Her Husband, Julia and Chogan’s from Brave Beginnings, and we’ll see who else
