    Notes 
    • From the Racine Journal-Times; Monday, March 3, 1969: Family Keeps Cookie 120 Years -- Cookies usually disappear in days or less if youngsters are around, but A. LeRoy Johnson has one that's 120 years old. A Dayton, Ohio, woman baked three sweet cakes for crippled Johnnie Wey in 1849 but the 8 year old boy died before eating the cookies. The boy's mother gave each of his three sisters a cookie to keep in memory of the boy and Johnson has his today after it was passed down to him through the generations. Johnson says that to his knowledge, his cookie is the only one of the three that is left. Johnson is the grandson of one of the three sisters, Margaret Wey, who carried it on a trip by covered wagon from Ohio to what she later called "the wilds of Crawford County, Wis." She still had the cookie when she died at Lodi, Wis, in 1919, passing the cookie on to her daughter, Mrs. Alfred Johnson. Johnson acquired the cookie upon his mother's death in 1955 and says he will pass it on to a member of the family to carry on the tradition.
