If you would like to share a memory with us about your granny for our next issue, just send it to me at: johnpatty@net-magic.net

My grandmother, MAGGIE FLORIDA ALLEN,
was only 15 when she married 20 year old
GEORGE WASHINGTON NETTLES on 
December 24, 1899.
 
I have many fond memories of my grand-
mother and she was so pretty to me. We
called her "GRANDMA" and I loved it
when she came to stay with us for a week
or two. She lived in the city and we lived
in the country.
 
Everytime the peanuts and grapes were
in season, she loved to come for a visit so
she could get some. She also liked to visit
when it was cane-grinding and syrup -
making time.
 
I remember one time when GRANDMA 
came for a visit, she showed me how to hem
a handkerchief. She showed me how to make
real tiny stitches and this was all done by hand.
It was very hard for me to do, but I still did it.
She told me I did a good job. I still enjoy sewing,
but now I use a sewing machine most of the time.
 
I really loved my GRANDMA, and sometimes I
still miss her.
