Alice Sarah Handy Arrington
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 2, 1870
Patrick County
Virginia, USA
Death: Dec. 23, 1954

Her father made his childrens' shoes and wove the cloth for their wearing apparel.
He had an apple orchard and one tree grew, as one person put it... "to be as big around as a buggy wheel".
People came for miles to see it.
He built a house with a kiln to dry their apples in.
He later built another home and one or two of the family would make music and the rest would dance in the old house.
Alices' mother was a midwife and delivered babies for miles around in the community of Rye Cove, VA. She would cook stacks of fried pies and all sorts of goodies for the company they had.
Alice had 10 siblings!
