Katrina Browne is a descendant of the DeWolfe family. Every 4th of July when she was growing up, her family went to Bristol, R.I., where her prominent and wealthy ancestors had lived, and watched the parade from the lawn of a family mansion. Katrina had always been proud of her patriotic heritage, so she was stunned in her late 20's when she found out that her family's wealth had been made from the slave trade. Also in this episode, Steve Lanier wrote to The Story to tell us about the funniest person he has ever known - Mr. Louis Phillip Hornthal, better known to all as "LP." Steve spent many days visiting with LP when he was a child. He died years ago, but LP's antics are still legendary among his friends and family - he is particularly remembered for his cleverly-executed pranks - including the time he convinced the neighborhood kids that a tree could blossom with candy.
