2. Lithuanian immigrant moves to the US (Chicago) with his family.

3. Spans a few generations of families in Florida.

4. A brother was executed for falsely being accused of stealing a cow.

3. I wanted to know the answer to number 3 so I googled it. My family has been in Florida since

Mid 1850s. Did you enjoy the book? It sounds interesting.

13. It's not the book I had in mind.

I'm not familiar with The Yearling. It may fit the description. I guess that could be a flaw with this type of game.

Additional hint: Orange groves and cattle are part of the plot.
