When we visited Far Guy’s cousin up in Grand Rapids, she shared some of the things that were passed down to her from Great Aunt Mae. I have written about Frank and Mae before. Mae was a school teacher before she married Frank in 1911. She taught on the Indian Reservation. Frank and Mae never had any children.
These were either gifts from her students or something that she purchased from them.
A beaded coin purse made out of the softest leather you have ever felt.
And a necklace.
What treasures these are passed from Aunt Mae to her niece Marie and then to Maries only daughter. It was a joy to see Aunt Mae’s treasures from so long ago.
I finished scanning all the old photos for that side of Far Guys family. After I scanned them, I divided up the double photos and made a CD copy of all the old photos so that each branch of the family can have a copy. One more project crossed off the list:)
