Thank you, Miriam. I feel very close to my Great-Grandmother through her handed down stories and scrap-books, even though she died many years before I was born. I am told my grandmother, who turned 96 last month, is very like her.

Fun to find the Massey connection!


Sounds delicious! What great descriptions Margaret had...makes the past really come to life! (P.S. I have Massey heritage as well).

Yes, very interesting, very appealing.

I'm not so sure about pigeon pie, though.


That was a very interesting account. I enjoyed her description of the springhouse. It sounds much like the springhouse my aunt remembers from childhood. She said that the water was so cold it hurt her arm to reach down into it. They could put a container of warm milk from the first cow into the cold water, and by the time they had finished milking, the milk was cold to drink with supper.
