A short bio: Dee's maternal side of the family is in Washington County including surnames Brown, Isgrigg, Sweeney and others. Dee's great-grandparents, Robert and Mary (Sweeney) Brown, lived on a farm just outside of Salem. They ran the Sunnyside Grocery on Hwy 135. It was actually the front room of their house and they had a gas pump right out front. Dee can remember playing out front around the gas pumps. It was usually *base* during hide 'n' seek and tag. She enjoyed many times going to their farm and seeing the cows, chickens, pigs and many cats.
