Personal Notes:
Other nuts may be used, but the black walnuts make this special. I remember the black walnut tree at the old home place where Lellie lived. I'm sure it furnished nuts for special treats for my great grandparents, Henry Evan (1838-1925) and Sarah Catherine Getzen Mealing (1834-1916) and their children:"Lellie" (Ellie), "Mamie" (Mary), and "Pop" (Drury Joseph or "Drew" 1870-1947), my grandfather.
