Appleton Man Injured When Car Hits Train
Appleton Man Injured When Car Hits Train
NEENAH -- a 28-year-old Appleton man, John R. Grist, 1112 N. Leminwah St., escaped without serious injury early this morning when his car slammed into a Soo Line train at the West Cecil Street crossing.

According to Neenah police, the mishap occurred at 2:35 a.m. when Grist's 1960 auto, traveling west on W. Cecil, struck the second car in a five-unit train being pulled by a Soo Line switch engine. Extensive damage was done to the front end of the car.

The Grist vehicle skidded at least eight feet before it struck the train. The impact, police said, knocked one of the railroad cars partially off the track. The railroad car, however, was routed back onto the track a short time later.

Grist was taken to Theda Clark Hospital in the Neenah ambulance and reported in satisfactory condition early this morning. According to a hospital spokesman, his injuries include chin lacerations and abrasions to the nose, arms and legs.

Back row, from left: Unknown Uncle, Franklin James Grist, Hattie Powers Front: Dorothy Grist, Eliza Powers
Status: Located; On the back, Dorothy Grist writes to Virginia Grist:

This snap is sixty-one years old this June 1964. You may keep it, Ginny, if you want it.

Uncle ? (Forgot his name. It might be great-grandpa Powers), Franklin Grist, Grandma B. [Hattie Powers] (widow), Dorothy Grist, great-grandma Powers [Eliza Brimmer].

Taken in 1903 in New York State [Virginia Grist thinks it was possibly near Hoosick Falls, N.Y. Census records from 1900 confirm that Hattie was living in Petersburg, NY with her mother, Eliza, who was 74.]

Grandma B. is Grandma Burhans. She's my mother's mother.

Great-grandmother Powers was the owner of the paisley shawl sent you. She was 90 years old when this was taken. She lived some time after this as taken but I don't recall how long. My mother, Grace Grist, took this snap. Sunshine was very bright, so we frown.

-Aunt Dorothy

Cookbook at 24 Winona Ct.
Status: Located; Virginia Grist:
We always had a notebook with recipes in it. Because mother was working so much at the fur store, we needed help with the cooking and such. Each night of the week had a certain meal associated with it. Monday Macaroni, I remember. And Pea du Hick (Creamed Dried Beef with Peas).

Eventually, we got a real cook, Mrs. Lowrey, but that was after I went to school. Before that, most of the cooks were just country girls, so mother had to give them exactly what to do.
