Scrap Day Sunday
Paul V Dickerson
For this week's Scrap Day Sunday, I'm sharing a check that I found in a box after my grandfather's death. The check is made out to my great grandmother and is written by her brother Paul. It is dated 17 March 1928. and is from the Farmer's Bank of Spruce in Spruce, MO. I for one can't believe there was ever a bank in Spruce. When you travel through the area now, nothing is left of the little communtiy except a cemetery. On the back of the check my great grandmother wrote, " a free heart but no money". Her brother Paul later died of wounds he suffered while serving his country in WWII.
