She told Viv that one day she sawJ.C. Doney riding a bicycle and said I'm going to set my hat for him.How they met we really don't know. They married in 1899. In 1901 J.C.and Caroline moved to Rossiter (maybe with the Frantzs). They lived ina duplex- Grandma and Grandpa Frantz on one side and Caroline and J.C. on the other. This house is still standing (1994) on Main Street inRossiter where you turn to go up to Aunt Peg's. The house had a washhouse out back where they took a bath and got dressed. Later theDoneys purchased a boarding house. Viv doesn't know when, but she iscertain she lived there when she was in the first grade and maybebefore. Caroline and J.C. made the building into a boarding house.Whenthey closed the boarding house J.C. sold all the furniture to a manwho owned a hotel. The guy took the furniture but never paid for it.When Vivian Doney Reid was 8 or 9 she and her family took a tripthrough Ohio. Grandma & Grandpa Frantz, Cal and Caroline Doney, andtheir children.

Note: Duringa telephone conversation with Jake Frantz on 1/16/95, he said thatsome relatives of the Frantzs lived in Napoleon, Ohio and that theyhad a cantelope farm there. He said that June would have known whothey were because they always sent cards to his Dad. A newly enactedlaw in Pa. created a $50 fine for cutting down an evergreen treewithout the owner's permission. That Christmas, Caroline Doney wantedtwo little trees for her front porch. Bill and Vivian were elected togo out into the woods to cut two trees. As usual, they drove to a spotwhere the trees were plentiful and Bill got out of the car to cut thetrees down. Just as he was finishing, the farmer, gun in hand, camerunning down the lane yelling at them. Viv, who was driving startedthe car, and tried to drive away, but it was stuck in the mud. Billgot out to push the car, the farmer getting closer by the second.Finally, the wheels caught and the car moved up out of the mud, andViv drove away leaving Bill and the farmer running behind her yelling.When they got home, Caroline said to Bill, 'Did you get the trees?' Hesaid, 'Yes, $100 worth.' Caroline and J.C. Doney took Caroyl Reid tovisit Sam and Rose Hunter. The two couples liked to play cardstogether. Sometimes they would stay up until 4 o'clock in the morningplaying cards. Grandma Doney liked to play '500'. Grandma Doney was anexcellent seamstress and cook.

Both the Frantzs and the Doneys spoke German. But they werevery different. The Doneys were Pennsylvania Dutch and their Germanhad a very sing song quality. Viv could understand German because itwas always spoken in her home. The 1910 Census above shows a boarderin the Frantz household, Tommy Robertson. When the Doney's bought theBoarding House and the Frantzs moved there with them, so did Tommy.Viv remembers that he used to pay her a nickel to sing 'Its a Long Wayto Tipperary ' to him. According to Vivian Doney Reid her GrandfatherFrantz was a great guy who made all the holidays fun. On Easter heused to take them into the barn where the Easter bunny had constructedlittle nests containing treats and eggs. He usually spied the EasterBunny hopping away and as the children looked they could see him too.On Christmas Eve Vivian and her family went to church but the Frantzsstayed at home. After church, when the children came home, theChristmas tree was decorated and Santa had come. After the presentswere opened 'Santa' in the person of Uncle Jake Frantz usually stoppedby for a visit. Vivian remembers being scared of Santa.
