A reminiscense of Grace Irons Haggenjos as related by her daughter Irma Louise Haggenjos. My Mother was very proud that her great grandfather was a minister and he "rode circuit".
She said that they were very old people but very loving of each other. He was tall and thin and that she was rather like a dumpling with a little white lace bonnet on her snow white hair. She called him "my dear" or "my dear husband" whenever she spoke of him or to him. They held hands at the table, or when sitting. She had flowers in the vegetable garden and jam and biscuits on the shelf.
