Typescript of an unpublished manuscript for a novel titled “The Eye of the Storm.”
Kenneth John McCullah was born in Kansas around the year 1916. He was married to Maurine Ruth McCullah and together they were avid researchers of the American Civil War. In 1986, they crafted a fictionalized story of a family named Layne and their history through the late 1700s up to the Civil War. This manuscript, titled “The Eye of the Storm” was never published. Kenneth passed away in 1991 and in Maurine in 2011. In 2013, the novel Oaklayne: A Civil War Saga was published, with authorship credited to Maurine. This is likely a reworking of the earlier manuscript. This manuscript was donated to Pittsburg State University by Mr. Gene Bicknell in 2016.
