I return to the Family Homesite this time to Sift through the dirt looking for Family artifacts.
Filmed in the Fall of 2019 we uncover a Chauffeur's pin that belonged to my Great Aunt Kathryn's husband William Ernest Thrower.
The pin dates back to 1935-36 # 51927 from California. a little bit about William Thrower he was a World War I United States Army veteran having served from March 26 1917 to July 2 1919.
Sergeant William E. Thrower 81 Division 324 Infantry, Company K of the American Expeditionary Forces
. Buried in Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno, Ca 1895-1965

I love Sifting AND Digging ...!
Yours is real nice, as it can be manned on two sides.
You use 1/4" screen, or 1/8th...?
