When I was a child, I always looked for my grandfather's name. During World War II, the cannon was hauled away for scrap. Uncle George, now alone, remodeled the rooms downstairs. The north rooms - living, dining, and kitchen - became their living quarters, and the south rooms - parlor, sitting room, and a new kitchen - were later rented to the Heathfield family, who had lost their house when they could no longer make their mortgage payments. My warm-hearted aunt told the family they could rent the south rooms until they could find another place.
