My Uncle remembers going to visit his g-grandma Ollie and would always find her sitting in an old rocker on the front porch of their farm, smoking her corncob pipe and chewing snuff. Their children were Joel Oliver, Lizzie Jane, and Alford Gideon. Lizzie Jane married Albert Wesley Tuttle and they are my g-grandparents.
Sincere thanks to Doris Tuttle King for these photos.
