Two hours (more or less) were spent on the downsizing project. Items went into the trash but the praise-worthy accomplishment was packing this box. Smile because this is a box of rocks!! Yes, eighteen pounds of rocks and will be expensive to mail to the Brethren Heritage Center. ~~ My immigrant ancestor, Michael Frantz (1687-1748) was an early preacher in the group later identified as “German Baptist Brethren.” This box contains rocks, and shingles, from the barn where Michael Frantz preached a sermon documented in Brethren’s history. I’ve been assured these relics will be well-received by the Brethren Heritage Center. ~~ I encourage the reader to click this link, It’s a small world after all, and read more details.
