May 2018 What is it? Last month’s antique was a coffee grinder or mill. Valerie Wilson, Versailles, described the item accompanied by a wonderful story, “I have one that was made in Austria. The handle says Ahner Vienna. A friend of mine gave it to me, and it had been her father’s. One story that really made this piece come alive to me is the one Laura Ingalls Wilder spoke of in the book, The Long Winter. Because blizzard after blizzard occurred that winter, the trains could not get through with food supplies. It was thought that a man had Wheat seed that I believe lived south of their location. Her future husband, Almanzo Wilder, and another young man went off one day to hopefully find that man… They did and returned as another blizzard began… Because that was seed and had not been ground, Mary, for the most part, would put seed in the mill and grind it. Then their mother would make a very rough bread… that is what kept them alive… Laura would help her father with making twists out of straw to use instead of firewood… thankfully they were in town through this very hard Winter, or they would likely not have survived… Such a small piece, yet the mill played a significant role in sustaining them and others.” The coffee grinder was THE BEACON identified correctly by so many readers including Becky Lloyd, Yorkville, Gayle Rolfes, Harrison, Roberta Struewing, Batesville, Carol Morton, This month's item was very helpful Brookville, in the kitchen. In fact, it probably still James could be today.
