I stopped into GW yesterday after I donated some of the leftovers from my garage sale and I found a sheet that I loved the material of and I found this pottery piece and lantern (that doesn't open?!).
I also found 2 old books! One of them is a geography of Illinois published in 1921 with all sorts of info on vegetation, populations, agriculture, and so on of Illinois from 1910-1920. The other is a book on the Lives of Benefactors with information about the lives of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and others published in 1849. After I got that book home I found a relative of mine in there, the boys didn't believe me so I went and got the family tree book and showed them.
See how many people we had in our little town of Genoa in 1920? The second number is 1910's population...we lost about 30 people. Now there are about 5000.
Well, I best go and get some thing done before I have to sit in the rain at a track meet this evening. Hope you all have a wonder filled day.
PLEASE READ MY LAST POST IF YOU DID NOT SEE IT YESTERDAY!
Love to all,
