To the Editor,

It has been said that when a group of people start telling stories, the first story teller doesn’t have a chance.

Recently I heard a public speaker tell with some pride in his voice a story about his grandfather who was born in 1859.

While I am some years older than this speaker it got me to thinking about my maternal grandfather. My mother never spoke much about him but the marker in the Greenleafton South cemetery says Henry Terbeest 1833-1916.

To put this into perspective, he was too old (28 in 1861) to fight in the Civil War. He easily could have known someone who had memories of George Washington.

That makes this great country of ours seem rather young.
