Grandmother Muriel Shippee, on the left, lived in Nebraska and came to visit most summers to my Mom and Dad's home in North Bennington. I was just a kid and never realized that it was unusual for grams and gramps to live in different places.Gram and Gramp had raised their 3 daughters in Wilmington, Vermont. Gram's brother Raymond and his wife Dot came to visit from Wilmington, Vermont that day.(Grandmother and Uncle Ray were children of William Grayson & Ella Jane Johnson Shippee). That's my wonderful grampa Bian Albert Shippee on the right, son of William Edward and Eliza Wilson Shippee. He lived with us in North Bennington.
