This horn came from a cow that Mary Dosier Weaver milked in a tin cup when she was a little girl, about the time of the Civil War (1860-1865). It was prepared by Eli Dosier and given to his sister Aunt "Kizzy", who latter married John Baker. Aunt Kizzy requested that at her death the horn be given to her niece, Cora Lee Weaver Steward (Mary Dosier Weaver's oldest child). In later years Cora Steward requested it be given to her daughter, Jimmie Steward Yandell. It was requested by Jimmie Yandell that at her death, the horn be given to her daughter, Lena Yandell Kennedy. It was also her wish that the horn be passed on to future generations for it to be enjoyed by all. Lena's eldest son had this history penned by a caligrapher and the horn mounted suitable for display.
