From M. Alexander 10 Apr 2007: "My grandma Hannah had a beautiful flower garden in the back yard and a covered swing. We always parked in back by the garage when we went there and when we went in the back door there was a Hoosier-type cabinet on the back porch and quite often there would be rhubarb kuchen cooling on the shelf. Grandma had those depression clear glass dishes that came in boxes of soap – hers were yellow – my favorite color. I remember eating home made applesauce from the apple tree in the back yard from those dishes. My grandma was a great cook – many Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners were eaten there. She made the world’s best coleslaw – even my mom couldn’t duplicate it! Grandma made her own lye soap and she would personally wash our hands at the kitchen sink because we couldn’t reach it very well (and probably to keep us from slopping soapy water on the floor!).
Bernice (Wesley’s sister) and her husband (John Norman Poulsen (Uncle Jack to me)lived two houses south of Aaron and Hannah. "
