Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Papa (Herbert Nelson Rushton,Sr.) -Eloise Rushton says she made biscuits before she married Lee, but she watched Papa in the kitchen at 431 Flint and learned to make them like he did. His grandchildren liked to poke a hole in each biscuit they were about to eat and fill it with their favorite syrup to make a "jug-a-hole' or "jug-a-ho".
