Sharing many memories old and new. Friendly insights and free hugs.

Milking in 1934

I decided to share another special item I have. My Mother, Betty Jane Marsh Phillips, and six of her siblings lost their parents in a tradgic house fire in Gibsonburg, Ohio, when Mom was only six years old. The children were spread apart and raised by different families. My Mother went to live with an Aunt and Uncle and at age Seven, she had to milk the cows on the farm.  I am priviledge to have her milking stool, made for her by her Uncle Peter J. Neiset.  I am reminded daily of the hard times she endured and how life is so easy now.

Great memories! We have a bench that looks like the one you have up by the milk can. They sure were rustic.
