Family Visit


Grandpa, Grandma, Mom and Dad all came to visit yesterday. Today, we piled into the car and drove to Wilmington, Ohio to visit Grandpa’s sister, Kay. She is a family historian and tells wonderful stories. We shared a lovely lunch with her daughter Mary Kay and Gary, then she took us to her apartment she recently moved into. With the move, there were a few family heirlooms found including a feedsack from the Bard Farm (Grandpa’s mothers family) in Lancaster, PA. It’s marked over 100 years old, but the note was probably written more than 75 years ago, I bet. Kay has the deed to her husband’s family farm signed by George Washington hanging on the wall.
