I bring this up because our lineage on her side of the family stops with my mothers great grandmother. I have been told she had Pennsylvania Dutch on her side of the family but have no way to confirm it beyond some things I have noticed over the years. Several years ago I attended an Amish Arts and Crafts Show in Kent, Washington, there was a video playing that showed some of the everyday life of the "Plain People." As I watched the video I noticed the women were dressed very similar to the dresses and aprons that my mother used to make for herself. Most of the women in the film had silver hair the same as my mother. And a bunch of stuff they were baking looked a lot like the goodies my mom had been making.

I have missed my mom for a very long time as she passed at the age of 70 in 1982. I miss all the things she did for us from the gaudy shirts she made for us to the food you just couldn't stop eating.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all the mothers out there. Love you, mom.
Hope all is well and thanks for stopping by.
