Ron V's Family Histories, Heirlooms, and Stories Links

J.B. Blake's Confederate $5J.B. Blake was my mother's maternal grandfather.  This is the story of a Confederate $5 note he gave her when she was a little girl.
Pawpaws LampThis is an old kerosine lamp that belonged to my paternal grandfather, Oakley Vincent.
Vincent Butter MoldWe had milk cows before I started grade school.  That meant all the fresh whole milk and butter we could consume.  When mother finished churching butter, she would press all the whey from it then mold it into cakes.  This is the butter mold she used.
Possible Smith
