      "Iva Pearl Ayer - Mother and Grandmother.
      Iva raise six daughters and one son. In later years she ahd pleanty of grandchil dren to keep her busy. She would get down on the parlor floor with me and humer me a s I carried out various battle scenarios with
      little lead soldier. She had white and green glass beads of different
      shapes which we wouls string on cord or wire to serve as Christmas tree
      decorations. I am sure all the children and grandchildren have memroies
      of thins they did with her. she was a lover of cats. Cousin Bill
      Shingledecker said when they were growing up they calle he "Kitty Grandma" , to identify which grandmother they were talking about. Her
      love of cats was passed on to her children with Ellen, Hazel and Alice all bein g known at one time or another as persons who could not resist
      giving a home to a hungry stray,

      Memories of the Ayer Family Home
      When I was a small child, her home seemed a fascinating place with lots of l ocations to explore both inside and outside. Gas lighting fixtures still hung on t he walls of the upstairs rooms. The kitchen
      had a pantry under the steps to the upstairs, and the food was cooled
      in an icebox. A large laundry room ran across the back of the house.
      The steps to the basement were in the floor of the laundry room. My
      grandfather would shave uing a straight razer, shaving brush and soap,
      a mirror, and a wash basin at the dinning room table. there was the Victrol a which was would by hand to play the old records as well as
      some of the newer ones. The radio was an Atwater-Kent on an ornate stand wit h a large speaker sitting on a shelf below the waist-high
      tuner. Edith had purchased it for her parents from her first pay check.
      The living room contained the bookcase. It was grandpa's domain where he woul d sit and read them behind the frence doors. The parlor held
      the piano and the family would gather arounf to sing. It was a player
      piano so that anyone who could pump it could make musci come forth from the rolls . Sometines some one would play. Alice and Phyllis would lead
      singing of popilar songs of the time like 'Three Little Fisher', 'Oh
      Johnny' and Roll Out the Barrel'. They would also tell ghost stories in the fron t steps near twlight. Remember "Shave to the Bones'or just sitting on the porch sw inging on a summer night listing to the crickets
      chirp in the peaceful neighborhood until the mosquitoes forced you inside. T he door bell was not electric but was manual with a bell
      ring as you turned the switch. The garage had apparently been an old
      stable and has an upper story. There was a shed like structre along the
      back wood fence. My grandfather grew grapes in the back yard. The Fourth o f July was always exciting. Did everone have grandparents with a fireworks stand ? The re was always plenty to shoot off after dark.
      I remember the family gathering each year on Christmas evening as the
      climax of what always seemed the most exciting day of the year. These
      are some of my childish memories. Probably many are inaccurate, but still the y represent to me a way of life gone
