In April 1936, Evelyn Abraham, then a reporter for the Uniontown Morning Herald and Evening Genius, published another serial in The Herald, twelve installments, titled, "Over The Mountains: The Life of a First Settler in Fayette County – How He Came Here and What He Did While Turning the Wilderness Into Peaceful Farmlands," clearly based on her manuscript from 1928. In it, she wove a story of the pioneering of Fayette County through the life of Enoch, "a Welshman three times removed," who was raised in the Welsh tract in Radnor, Pennsylvania. Perhaps out of modesty or in the interest of detachment of the story, it was only in the final, twelfth installment that she gave away the fact that he was Enoch Abraham, her ancestor.
