“Walter (grandson of Austin and Mary Wright) remembers his grandparents’ home on Liberty St. next door to 620 Liberty St. where Uncle Cec and Aunt Marie lived, and 620½ where Betty and Chuck Reed live now.  It was to the right, if you’re facing Uncle Cec’s front door.  There was a pear tree behind his grandparents’ home that Walter liked to pick and eat from.  Also Sylvia Mae remembers seeing the black Civil War era captain’s chair (of great-grampa Isaac Newton White’s) at Grampa White’s house.  It was in a little room off the living room, like an office, and the chair was at a desk in there.  Walter now has the chair and will be giving it to Dan and Sara White.  On the other side of Uncle Cec’s house was a very large vegetable garden covering the whole lot, clear to the woods which grew behind all three lots.  Sylvia Mae says that was their vegetable garden which they grew (Baa & Dapa’s).  Behind Uncle Cec’s house the house which Chuck and Betty Reed live in now, was a gunsmith shop.  That’s where Uncle Cec cut off the Springfield rifle, which Dapa gave to Walter, and Walter gave to Dan White.  Grandpa Austin White served in the National Guard and went against the strikers in western Pennsylvania.  He was a marksman.  He would have gone into the Spanish-American War but he withdrew from the Guard before that.  Once a biplane ran out of gas and landed in the field behind the woods (toward Grove City college) (also towards Dapa’s and Baa’s house where Walter lived about a block from his Grandpa and Grandma White).  Grampa and Grandma White went to the United Presbyterian Church and he worked at Cooper Bessemer in Grove City until he retired.  We have a book he owned, Shepherd of the Hills, at Sylvia Mae’s house, which is the origin of the Ozarks pageant by that name.”  (R‑4)
