Opening   Gramma   Asaph after Ethel   Amanda Bell and Ethel Bertie


Throughout her life in Canton, Ethel maintained close contact with her parents who only lived about 20 miles away. It was common for the young Perry girls to visit Gramma and the ailing Grampa in Buffington. One particular visit coincided with the birth of Ethel's first son, Jack. No doubt the children were sent up to Gramma's to give Ethel the necessary peace with which to recover from delivering a child in 1903. The girls wrote about visiting their extended family members like Uncle Bud. Gramma expressed concern for the poor lone horse that the girls can't seem to give a break.
