  1. Hi, Donna, I really enjoyed reading this piece as much as I do many others that you compile! I am 53, and I remember seeing this alum can on my grandmother’s shelf. I also remember that my other grandmother had a beautiful mahogany bedroom set that I wanted when I grew up. Unfortunately, she had to sell it when we moved across country and took no furniture with us. Now I wonder if it was true mahogany. Based on this, I’m thinking it wasn’t. Regardless, I still would have wanted it. Thank you for the share! (P.S. The year is incomplete in your footnote: “His family moved to the Territory of Alabama by 183.”)
