I want to share a lovely and true treasure that was just passed down into my family. I feel more like a caretaker of the items, not their owner, as one day my own children will have them and they are really from their daddy's great, great, great grandmother Anna. The trunk was her own from around the time of her marriage in 1889 - she was about 25 I'm told. There are so many special items to be found inside, cards and letters, a few journals (written in german, we'll need a translator!). Here are just a few of the unique items:
pill boxes with pills still inside!
