Candy-Mary-Jane.jpg

I stumbled across this recipe today, never knowing that Harriet Beecher Stowe's sister wrote a recipe book! Glancing over a description of it, I came across a recipe for pure yumminess in the form of molasses candy, essentially a popcorn and nut brittle. I am posting the original receipt from Catharine Beecher's book, as well as an adaptation that might fit modern ingredients well. Enjoy!...

Does anyone know of any photographs taken of the 15th New York Volunteer Cavalry, particularly Company H or Company G? I've attached a photo of my G-G-Grandfather Asa Sadder who joined this unit on August 27th of 1863 (just three weeks after his 16th birthday). This photo was taken in Washington D.C. in June of 1865 just before he was mustered out of the army.

Nellie with parents and family
cw nellie grant w family.jpg

Ullyses and Julia Grant had 4 children, but it was common knowledge that his 3rd child and only daughter was his favorite- no small thing to a man who doted on all of them to the point of worship. I bumped into a story on Ellen " Nellie's " short stint as The Old Lady Who Lived In A Shoe ", in an old newspaper, which of course sent me off on another search- Nellie Grant.
