The Bedford Story - The Lost Children

by Ned Frear

The Lost Children by Ned Frear

Two little boys, lost in the wilderness of the Allegheny Front in 1856 brought a thousand men from near and far to search the twisting hollows and steep ridges. For two desperate weeks, they hunted in vain until a man named Jacob Dibert had three dreams, in which he found them. The story of the Lost Children of the Alleghenies has always been compelling. With the full awareness of those troubled times, it becomes even more dramatic and uplifting.
