17-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Sunday, January 26, 1913: Went to Sunday School this afternoon. Besse was out.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Grandma’s sister Besse was married and lived in nearby Watsontown. Sometimes Besse brought needlework or sewing along when she came to visit. For example, on August 9, 1912 Grandma wrote:
We had sort of s sewing bee here today. Besse was out and brought some of her stuff along.
On this January day, a hundred years ago, perhaps the sisters did cross-stitching while they chatted.
