My Mother, Maggie Crawford from Scotland, worked as a Cook for the Jennings from 1925 to 1940, in 1940 she married my Dad. The Jennings gave my Mom a Wedding gift of $500 in 1940. She used this money to put a down payment on a house in Bayside when houses were selling for $4000. A Very generous gift. I have visited the area many times but it is all broken into many estate. I can only relate that they were special and generous people!
