The Old Liquor Glass

Family Artifact Paragraph
Family Artifact Paragraph

My family artifact is an old liquor glass. It came into my family in 1890. When my great great grandfather Henry Stein was thirteen, his father was ill. They did not have that much money so they could not afford any medicine. So Henry decided to get a job. He looked for a while then he found a job at Ginocchio Bar in Marshalls, Texas. He was very good at his job, and he earned enough money to help his father get better. When he left Ginocchio Bar, they gave Henry an old liquor glass as a thank you. He brought it home with him. When Henry grew up and had a daughter, he gave the glass to her. His daughter was Mabel Grimes, my great grandmother. When she grew up and had a daughter, she gave it to her. She is my grandma, Babett . When she grew up and had a son, she gave it to him, my dad Brad. When he grew up and got married he gave it to his wife my mom Susannah . Then she gave it to me. That is the story of how the old liquor glass got into my family.
