SOME REMEMBRANCES OF CHARLES AMBERSON AND LILLIAN BAGLEY BY THEIR GRANDSON

As a very small child I recall my grandparents living on a farm about 4 miles West of Albia, Iowa on old highway #34. This was a one story white farmhouse on the North side of the highway. There were several outbuildings including a ramshackle barn. We use to play on the front lawn as children.

Grandpa Bagley was a firm believer in using mules rather than horses or the more modern farm tractor, although he did have a tractor, He felt he could get a better days work from mules than he could from horses and they were more reliable, Of course this was at a time when tractors were much smaller and rather costly for small farmers. The time period was in the middle to late 1930's.

One of my favorite memories centers around the fresh homemade bread that Grandma Bagley use to make. That and her fresh home made rolls still make my mouth water when I think of them, I can also remember the old hand cream separator which we would take turns turning by hand. From the fresh cream they would make ice cream that was delicious, I once tried the warm, rich cream straight from the separator and have never been able to use it since. It was warm and thick and fax to rich to drink in that condition.

I remember their living room and bedroom, which were both off limits to the children. The living room was for company only and the bedroom was Grandma's private domain. Once in awhile I would sneak into both just to see what was forbidden. The bed was covered with hand made quilts which were so soft and warm and the bed had a huge and very thick feather mattress. I often wanted to climb up on it but never dared, so I would settle for just touching it and feeling the softness* On the living room wall hung a picture of the Andersonville Prison, painted during the Civil War. That picture made such an impression on me that my wife and I recently visited the site where it once stood. The corner posts and the creek running through the middle of the compound are still visible. They told us the creek furnished the only water the prisoners had while kept there, I never knew the significance of that picture but suspect it had something to do with my Great Grandfather Burdan's service in the Union Army during the Civil Wax. He was Grandma Bagley's father.

Grandfather Bagley was a wonderful man. He was rather small compared to my father William Franklin Bagley, but his heart more than made up for any smallness of stature. He was lively and full of good will. I especially remember his coming to town on Saturday and bringing a couple of bottles of beer to our house while Grandma was doing the shopping and selling their eggs, He and my mother would sit at the kitchen table and drink the beer while visiting about many things. They usually gave me a small glass and this was the highlight of the day for me. By the time Grandma was done shopping the beer was gone and the bottles put away. I am sure she could smell the beer but never did she say a word about it while I was around.

Grandma Bagley was a totally different type person from Grandpa. She was very strict and especially strong in her religious beliefs. She frowned on beer or any alcoholic beverage and never did I see Grandpa drink when she was around. But she raised her family and provided them with the necessities of life and I am sure she loved them all very much.
