One thought on “Cribbage board

  1. Lisa Walker

    I know I didn’t dream this, I’m 100% certain a kid in my 2nd or 3rd grade class in Dunwoody, Ga., brought this piece to class for show-and-tell. As I recall, this person was a direct descendant- or great- great- great/ nephew. Would have been around 1967 – 1968…?

    Obviously, this made quite an impression on me as I’ve always remembered the day in class and the historical significance.

    Can anyone reading this confirm my recollection?
