Family memories:collette
Posted by: Sheryl Reynolds on May 2 2009 13:53

Dear Collette I admire you very much you are my hero I know you get tired of me saying this. BUT it is true.

Why others may ask.

Well She has been working for years on family information for all of us to have.

Did she have to , NO!

Why is this important to me?

Well as a little girl I grew up loving to spend time with her as cousins do and now as I look back and see her life she hasn't had it easy.

But she has many treasures though her daughter grandkids an son in-law,And wonderful husband! her family cousins, Aunts and uncles grandma and grandpas all watching her grow.

Friends loving her also.

She has cancer and her inter strenght has amazed us all. Has she stopped running around getting information for us NO! Is it hard for her yes! Is she having the time of her life doing this and going to races with her wonderful husband getting auto graphs and helping children get the famous drives names also. She hasn't stopped.

I am struggling to keep up with her as she has just given me several cemeterys with tons of family I have to add to my information.

She has and has given so much and I sit here wondering if I have given her as much as she has given me. I love you collette....

Family stories:Stacy Wilmuth Sanders Rambo Birth: Oct. 2, 1848 Death: Jun. 5, 1930 Shellsburg Sept. 29 a Totally blind for twenty- five years but with the spirit of the pioneer that she i., Mrs. Stacy Rambo, widow living with her son, Will and his family at the east end of town who will celebrate her seventy- eighth birthday Saturday, persistently refuses the aid of a cane in walking about thinks little of piecing an entire quilt unaided, during winter months, and accomplishes the family mending and patching with her own tiny stitches. The fact that she never has seen a telephone, and automobile or radio does not detract from her enjoyment of either. Mrs. Rambos birthday in 1921 was celebrated by a reuion of the Sanders family and the occassion has become an annual affair since. Seventy-five relatives are expected at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Sanders, one mile northeast of town, Sunday for the celebration. Stacy Sanders who became Mrs. Rambo was born in a log house four miles east of Vinton. Because there was no school in the community she did not attend until nearly eight years of age. The building of Sanders Ridge log schoolhouse was regarded as a big step in educational work. Its first teacher was Isaac Crabb and Mrs. Rambo was among the first puplis. The log house burned and was replaced by a frame structure in which school is still held. Wool fringed shawl for a winter wrap, woolen hood, flowered lined dress and some knit white wool stockings and mittens comprised a custume inviting display at a bob ride party or spelling bee when Mrs. Ramabo was a young woman. Until she was eighteen a shaker bonnet was the only headgear she knew and the memory of her first hat a white straw with a cluster of pink flowers and a blue ribbon bow is still dear to her. Mrs Rambo learned the art of doubling and twisting yarn for mittens and stockings at a spinning wheel when a little girl. She has woven twilled blankets , flannel and lindsey on a loom after her mother carded the wool. A choice pattern was always sought to weave fancy valances for beds. In time she became a skilled seamstress and today retains the art of making almost invisible stitches., she uses a self -threading needle. In reminisicing, Mrs.Rambo recalls that on summer nights the pioneers used regularly to build smudges around the house in order to keep the mosquitoes away and insure sleep. Flys were troublesmone as there were no screens or mosquito net. Her mother used to set hens in the pretuding corners of the big chimney outside the house in the early spring therby protecting the eggs. Chicken theives were common then but their methods were crude. Often the thief was identified by having to go to a doctor for removal of shot from his body. The oppotunity to fire on an intruder was excellent when flight was halted by rail fences which had to be climbed. Each family kept a gun for this emergency. Fruit was not plentiful in the early days. Favorite spreads were made from pumpkin, wild plums and wild crabs. Brown sugar was scarce so these butters were prepared with sorghum. Mrs. Rambo remembers that on many occasions her family divided its frugal meal with hungry Indians. A feast of venison occurred when an uncle shot a deer. An effort was always made to have wild turkey for holidays, since green coffee ws expensive it was purchased in small quanities carfully roasted and kept only for company. The daily beverage was made by brewing rye or wheat in a skillet, then boling the grain and adding a pinch of coffee essence which came in powder form. With the exception of a ten-day visit to Scott county, Mrs.Rambo's entire life has been spent in Benton countyt and her six children all live near her. They are Roy of Palo, Mrs. Rebekah Benson of Urbana, William, Charles, Mrs. Earl White and Mrs.Eugene Mccully, all of Shellsburg. 1926 Hold Funeral of aged woman at Shellsburg Benton county News Paper Shellsburg June 9 funeral voices for Mrs. W.D. Rambo a lifelong resident of Benton County, were held Saturday afternoon at the home of son William at Shellsburg. burial was in the local cemetery. The Rev. Mr. Sarchett was assisted in conduction the rites by the Rev. Lafe Huff.

The fact that she never has seen a telephone, and automobile or radio does not detract from her enjoyment of either.
Mrs. Rambos birthday in 1921 was celebrated by a reuion of the Sanders family and the occassion has become an annual affair since. Seventy-five relatives are expected at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Claude Sanders, one mile northeast of town, Sunday for the celebration.
Stacy Sanders who became Mrs. Rambo was born in a log house four miles east of Vinton. Because there was no school in the community she did not attend until nearly eight years of age. The building of Sanders Ridge log schoolhouse was regarded as a big step in educational work. Its first teacher was Isaac Crabb and Mrs. Rambo was among the first puplis. The log house burned and was replaced by a frame structure in which school is still held.
Wool fringed shawl for a winter wrap, woolen hood, flowered lined dress and some knit white wool stockings and mittens comprised a custume inviting display at a bob ride party or spelling bee when Mrs. Ramabo was a young woman. Until she was eighteen a shaker bonnet was the only headgear she knew and the memory of her first hat a white straw with a cluster of pink flowers and a blue ribbon bow is still dear to her.
Mrs Rambo learned the art of doubling and twisting yarn for mittens and stockings at a spinning wheel when a little girl. She has woven twilled blankets , flannel and lindsey on a loom after her mother carded the wool. A choice pattern was always sought to weave fancy valances for beds. In time she became a skilled seamstress and today retains the art of making almost invisible stitches., she uses a self -threading needle.
In reminisicing, Mrs.Rambo recalls that on summer nights the pioneers used regularly to build smudges around the house in order to keep the mosquitoes away and insure sleep. Flys were troublesmone as there were no screens or mosquito net. Her mother used to set hens in the pretuding corners of the big chimney outside the house in the early spring therby protecting the eggs.
Chicken theives were common then but their methods were crude. Often the thief was identified by having to go to a doctor for removal of shot from his body. The oppotunity to fire on an intruder was excellent when flight was halted by rail fences which had to be climbed. Each family kept a gun for this emergency.
Fruit was not plentiful in the early days. Favorite spreads were made from pumpkin, wild plums and wild crabs. Brown sugar was scarce so these butters were prepared with sorghum. Mrs. Rambo remembers that on many occasions her family divided its frugal meal with hungry Indians. A feast of venison occurred when an uncle shot a deer. An effort was always made to have wild turkey for holidays, since green coffee ws expensive it was purchased in small quanities carfully roasted and kept only for company. The daily beverage was made by brewing rye or wheat in a skillet, then boling the grain and adding a pinch of coffee essence which came in powder form.
With the exception of a ten-day visit to Scott county, Mrs.Rambo's entire life has been spent in Benton countyt and her six children all live near her. They are Roy of Palo, Mrs. Rebekah Benson of Urbana, William, Charles, Mrs. Earl White and Mrs.Eugene Mccully, all of Shellsburg. 1926
