Alice Edwards Osborn Hand was born in Wainscott in 1879. Even in these changing times, the Main Street of her Hamlet has not lost its rural roots. She spent her early years studying at the neighborhood one-room school and later taught elementary students until she married John Hand in 1905. They and their young son moved to Kinderhook, NY in 1910. As the years passed, she enjoyed telling friends about her life long ago in Wainscott. Soon after her husband died in 1952, she sat down at her typewriter and began spinning the stories of Wainscott long ago.
