Aunt Reta left a comment: china set was great aunt alma’s who got them during the war, probably in England some place
So there we have it. It seems that all the nice things Grandma displayed in her kitchen came from Aunt Alma. I guess this makes sense, when you consider that Grandma’s mother came to this area in a covered wagon, as a 17-year-old girl. You wouldn’t be hauling many treasures aside from your cooking pots and winter clothing.
