The object I have chosen is a golden pocket watch that belonged to my great-great-grandfather. If you look closely at the picture of the back of the pocket watch, you can see the initials of my great-great-grandfather's name. His name was Avery Brink Wight and was from the early 1900s. His jobs were a bank examiner and sheriff. He served in World War One and in the Spanish-American War. The pocket watch was passed down from Avery Brink Wight to my great-grandfather, who passed it down to my grandfather, who passed it down to my uncle, who currently possesses it. The pocket watch that used to belong to my great-great-grandfather has been in my family for about a century and is very important to my family.
