Sirilda Jane Spegal, (Raney)
born 10/29/1851 in Kentucky
- - -
Sirilda Jane came to Missouri from Kentucky in a covered wagon. Dan recalls "Grandma Raney" close to 100 years old when she lived with his Perkins grandparents. He says she was "short and plump, 3 1/2 feet tall and 3 1/2 feet wide." But she could swing a six foot arc with her cane at all the kids, and did so frequently. She smoked a clay pipe; Dan remembers her Golden Grain tobacco.
