|Grandpa & Grandma Prince probably bought this clock after they moved to West Virginia from Nebraska. It would have been when they lived in this house on the farm. I don’t really remember it being here though, so they may have bought it after Mom and Dad bought the neighboring “Brick House” farm.||
I know for sure they had it when they moved to Newell, WV, on Jefferson street.
Perhaps I can remember the sound of this clock so well because
worked as a night watchman at the Homer Laughlin Pottery there in
and he slept mostly in the daytime, so it was necessary for me to be
while he rested. It is here that I enjoyed cutting out car
from old magazines and I still have a scrapbook of those
It was the winter of most of one school year, I think it was 4th grade,
that Mom and Dad left West Virginia and went to Florida. I think
Dad even bought a little place down there, near Orlando where he went
try to find work. But that’s another story.
