TALES from the FRONT PORCH
Ringgold County's Oral Legend & Memories Project
My great grandparents died when I was very young, so I don't have many memories of them myself.
I mostly remember things that my mother told me about John Solomon and Sarah Vienna (Vogan) Mosbarger:
My mother told me that my great grandmother was very frugal. My great grandmother only owned two pairs of shoes at a
time. One pair she would wear for only working in the garden and around the house, the other pair she would only wear
for church on Sunday's. When the shoes she wore for working in the garden and around the house wore out, she would use
her Sunday shoes for working in the garden and around the house and buy a new pair of shoes only to wear for church on
Sundays. She repeated this process until the day she died.
