I wish we still owned the 3-cornered lot but we deeded it to the Ivory Baptist Church when Dad died. We were in no position to pay land taxes at the time. And we also knew our family had some odd falling out between the Ivory Baptist and the Frewsburg Baptist Church but we knew no real history on the details of it. Therefore, thinking ourselves very clever, Diana and I thought to end the conflict by deeding the last piece of the Cass farm to both Churches to share forcing an end to their unknown differences. However, our lawyer very competently talked us out of it. Since we had no idea where our family loyalties were meant to lie given that Gram and Dad had both become Episcopalians somewhere along the line, we very fairly flipped a coin.
Sometimes magnanimity is reduced to luck.
