S: SAM AND DIANNE PERRINS FAMILY VOLUME II
1: When we bought this home the original owners were called the Butshause. Their daughter had made this pencil sketch and after several years of us living in Tekoa a resident gave them to me. | All of the years we lived here, like 14 any time, someone asked where we lived, it depended on what generation they were from that determined their answer. If they were from the 50 or 60's it was the Butshause. If later it was the Shoestrums. Wonder if now it's the Perrins?
