MY MATERNAL GRANDFATHER. He came to America about 1900, from Nutsford, England, but always said he was a Scot. There was some kind of family dispute involved in His coming here, and He would say little in detail about His life before leaving Britain. He was a skilled ceramics chemist, an expert on pottery glazes. Somewhere along the way He also picked up a lot of blacksmithing and machining knowledge. He could pick up two sticks, and beat a mean military tatoo on anything around. Somewhere, in the past, He was a military drummer.
