Dwan McAndrews has Emailed me saying that her mother Clara had the cooper's tools she inherited from Uncle Joe mounted on barrel lids and hung them on her wall. Then she gave them to her brother Bill who also hung them on his wall. With Bill's passing the tools went to brother Don. Don's home is in Eden, N.Y. When Jim and I were working on the the "Guidebook to the Pratt Family of North Berrien" Don sent me $100. I added $100 and Linda and Vince presented a copy of the Guidebook to the North Berrien Historical Museum along with the $200. They got their picture on the front pager of the TriCity Record.
