Are You My Cousin?: Three Guesses What These Are

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

Three Guesses What These Are

Any guesses? They are corn shuckers that belonged to my farming ancestors of Halifax Co, Va. I correctly guessed their use on the first attempt, however, watch the next post. That tool wasn't as easy.

I've used the Iowa-Nebraska variety, in my younger days, to see what it was like, in the "olden days" - not that long ago. Great artifacts. Anxious to see that next post!
Thanks for posting these!

Keep these ancestor stories coming!
