This list was among my father's papers.

He told me one time that they had a pair of bobs that they rode down hill on. Two of the bigger boys tipped the tongue back and steered it. All the children would get on and ride. One time the bobs were broken and the man who owned them worked all night fixing them so the children could ride down hill.

These have all passed on, but perhaps someone will recognize some of the names as being those of some of their ancestors. Charles A. Bunnell died in 1865 in the battle of Gravely Run, south of Petersburg.

William H. Bunnell was six years old in 1842. He was my father later.
