“Kentucky Star” Owner’s Stan and Teela Watts. Teela chose the Kentucky Star because it was a favorite of Stan’s mother Maria Jane Watts. Mrs. Watts loved to sew the design into antimacassars for her sofas and chairs. The barn on which “Kentucky Star” is mounted was built in 1935 to house tobacco and has been used for that until recently. The barn is on the farm that Stan’s grandparents Frank and Lena Watts established in 1920. Frank and Lena raised their three sons: Crawford, John, and Frank on this 100 acre farm in the com- munity known as Little Germany located between Millville and Clifton. Stan’s grandfather Frank Watts served two terms on the Woodford County School Board and was a Deacon of the Millville Christian Church for 30 years.
