Hitty and Friends Waving from the Fence at Old Sturbridge Village!

A sudden gust of wind sent the flags waving at Old Sturbridge Village!

My 6th great grandfather Nehemiah Lyon represented the Woodstock, Connecticut area in the protest of the Stamp Act in 1765. Nehemiah Lyon's wife was Mehitabel (Child) Lyon. Hitty again says "That's my name, too! My nickname is Hitty, from Mehitabel!" There are many Mehitabels in our family!

We at the Corgyncombe Courant love how Tasha Tudor illustrates July in "Around The Year" and "A Time to Keep". Tasha shows picnics, flying and displaying the American flag, firecrackers, and fireworks. In "Around the Year" the page with the eagle, stars, and flags catches our eye!

Some of the writings on this post are from previous Corgyncombe Courant posts that can be found here on the Corgyncombe Courant and from our previous postings elsewhere on the internet.
