Ann and Kevin Malone, with Shay Patrick

The baptismal gown is almost 150 years old. It was made from the wedding apron of Francis Rasch from 1859. Many of the Jackoboice children have been baptized in it over the years. There is also a bonnet that is some 125 years old and was handmade in a convent with gold thread. All of the details of the gown and bonnet travel with them as they are passed on to the family with the newest baby.
