If I can ever get to the end of the probably 10 years that I spent with Aunt Bett, I probably will tell you how she learned all that she knew. It all goes back to one of the great grandmothers, and I will have to do a little geneology research to find it, but there was a great grandmother who was Native American. I do know a little bit about her from what Aunt Bett told me. Not sure I can go back any farther than that, though...
Thank you for writing, you surely do brighten up my days.
Vossner, I meant to tell you that I have some writings on Aunt Bett's mother as well as her grandmother. It has been in the back of my mind to see what I can do with that, but I am not sure I can come up with enough info for an article. It would be my great grandmother and my great great grandmother...a long time ago. I will see what I can do, though, and thanks for the suggestion.
