Hi-can't believe we left Iowa only days before this auction...I would
have loved to experienced it! I found myself collecting old skeleton
keys along the trip...only acquired a few, but had to think about
packing stuff home! We had NO where near enough time to do what I
wanted....thus my research will continue via the internet for now. I
got the rare opportunity to walk thru an old cemetery with my family and
have my husband locate a gravesite from 1895, a sibling of my
grandfathers' that died when she was 1 1/2...since no one in the family
knew about the location, it was quite a thrill....a baby pillow with
fringe made of stone, very sentimental moment for us. I will be in
touch after I play "catch up from vacation"!!! --Sandy (p.s. hope the
auction went well...if there are any leftovers are you going to post?)
