Here is the chair that I had done that I told you about. It looks great by our fireplace tonight! I believe that this was Adam and Sarah's rocker.
This rocking chair was, indeed, owned by my grandparents, Adam Jasper Henthorn and Sarah Henthorn. My parents inherited it and when my mom's mother (Emma Randall) moved into the 2nd house on our farm in Wisconsin the chair was given to her. Now the chair is possessed by Cheryl Henthorn Metcalf and her husband, Mike Metcalf. I am pleased that it is staying in the family.
Thanks for the photo. The chair looks great in your house. It brings back wonderful memories of a great time in my life. I am pleased that it is now being taken care of by your loving family.
