The Marys

Our ancestor Mary Lavinia lived in North Carolina during the Civil War. Upon hearing that General Sherman was near she made preparations to secure her house. One of these  ingenious safeguards was to cut down her green drapes into small bags, which she then filled with her silver and hung in the trees lining her driveway. Sherman’s army approached and walked right under Mary’s valuables. While her live stock and crops were pilfered, her house and the hidden silver were not touched. In this vain we have created our own pouches in three sizes: the Grande Mary, the Mid Mary, and Petite Mary with which you can cover your possessions in genuine Florida alligator and deer hide.
