      I do not remember exactly when it was in the 1950s (but obviously before April 26, 1955, when she died) our grandmother invited my first cousin William Gail Clayton and me to her house. There she gave us each a pocket watch that had belonged to her husband, our grandfather, Willie W. Frederick (1879-1931).

      The smaller watch was, she said, "prettier" and she gave it to William Gail Clayton as he was older. However, the larger watch she gave to me is one of the "prettiest" heirlooms I possess -- being only the second item I own that belonged to my grandfather. I also have his double-barrel Ithaca shotgun. He died long before I was born.
