The value of the ‘Antiques Roadshow’

Let's Cook with Charles Repnow

He was born to Even and Clara Johnson. They named him Edwin, and in time, he married Lydia Elvera Sorenson. Together they farmed north of Williston and raised their family of six children. In his spare time, Edwin liked to whittle. His greatest efforts of this craft came when he completed statues of Abe Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin. He also crafted a covered wagon with a team of horses. He had an incredible gift for detail, stance and expression. In time, his daughter, Delores came to have the 28-inch statue of Lincoln. She brought it to Ray, where her family continues to enjoy it. Delores explained that her dad made this statue out of wood that was salvaged from old farm equipment. At that time, there would not have been money to purchase new wood; Edwin's aptitude brought forth this very suitable, weathered hardwood for his creation.
