      Excepts from Ethel Hand Armstong's Story "A FAMILY NAMED HAND"
      ..."Father's mother was a tough old lady who had been married four times. Her first husband (Marcia's Note: Enoch Hand) died and she married his brother (Marcia Note: John Harvey Hand), who was my grandfather and after he died she married again and had two children by him. (Marcia's Note: The two children were Newton and Nancy TREMAIN but John HAND and Frances GREEN's marriage license shows the name as FREEMANS.) Later she was again widowed and married again but she had no children by him because they were both old. She visited us once at the homestead and brought her stepson with her. I guess he must have been her stepson. His name was Bill Brown and we were taught to call him Uncle Bill. He was a young man of eighteen or so. Harvey had saved up his pennies to buy a present for Grandma Brown and when father went to town he went along to get his gift. Grandma always smoked a clay pipe so he bought her a new clay pipe. When they came back, grandma was sitting on the steps. Harvey could not wait so he gave her the pipe. She put it in her mouth and then took it out again and taking the bowl in her hand, she hit the stem on the edge of the steps and broke it. Harvey was almost ready to cry because he thought that she didn't like his gift. She put it back into her mouth and patted him on the shoulder with a smile and then he realized that she had no teeth and could not hold the pipe by its long stem but with a short stem she could. He was happy."...

      ..."We got off the train at Howe, Indiana. I think that father's mother still lived there and mothers' parents lived there and her only brother Lewellyn lived near by. I can just remember grandpa Green. His once red hair was grey and he had a long grey beard. He wore a red and black plaid Mackinaw jacket, the first one that I had ever seen. Grandma Green was short and chubby and was very wrinkly and had sharp dark eyes. Lewellyn had a large family and was cutting logs for a living at that time. He liked to be called Walter, his middle name because he didn't like Lewellyn. Father needed money too so we stayed there a while and father helped Uncle Walter cut logs. It was a two-man job because they had to be cut with a crosscut saw. I suppose we stayed with grandpa and grandma Green but I don't remember"....

      The 1860 Census said that she could not read or write.
