Are You My Cousin?: Treasure Chest Thursday Button Hooks

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

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!

Treasure Chest Thursday Button Hooks

These button hooks belonged to my great-grandmother Winnie Haley Carr (1891-1970) of Halifax County, VA. I believe these hooks were used for her shoes. Thank goodness for slip-ons!

Neat memories. My grandkids shoes are all velcro... not even laces anymore, either.

Keep these ancestor stories coming!

I think I've seen these in some of our family's treasures but didn't know what they were! Thanks for sharing!

I found your blog from Tina Lyon's Gen Wish List entry for Thursday, March 4th. I'm glad she mentioned your site.
