Mary Catherine Hull, my great aunt, told me that the little clay shoes that I have were brought over to American with Mary Owens. Mary must have given the shoes to her daughter Elizabeth and Elizabeth gave them to Henry Watkins who then gave them to my great aunt Mary Catherine.
The above story was the story handed down but after doing some research on the shoes this may be incorrect. According an archelogist ( Esther (Polly) Hammer, the shoes may be Native American from the Lake Michigan area.
