I am new at this tablet stuff. My entry about my great grandfather Charles Klepzig owning Alley Spring was entered without the expected identification or E mail address. sorry. Robert O Harper.
I am Robert O Harper,son of W.O.(Oscar)Harper,dads mother was Elizabeth (Lizzy) Jane Klepzig Harper. My grandmothers father was Charles Klepzig who owned Alley Spring and the mill around 1880 to 1890. I went to Delaware school for the 7th and 8th grade. I graduated. High school in Birch Tree in 1948. When going to Delaware school, my teachers were Eula Davis and Edna Staples of the store at Alley Spring.
I dabbled in old mills more when I was younger.....and this was one of my favorites. A real beauty!
