calumus meretrix et gladio innocentis

Joseph Eighner

Do not confuse with Joe Eighnor who was Joseph Eighner's uncle.

I have no distinct memory of Joseph or his wife. My earliest memory is of turning the cream separator on this farm. I had to be held up to reach the handle, and I presume my father and grandfather were the men present for this event, but the event overshadows everything else. larry
