The Bicentennial farm this week belongs to the
Kolle family. Pictured from left to right they are
Miriam Kolle; her granddaughter Christine, age
Aseven; and Miriam's son John and his wife Bar-
' Her Aunt Sylvania,
Miriam recollected, spent
her later years in the same
house where Miriam now
lives. Sylvania Penn Keim
never married, Miriam said,
and lived most of her life on
the farm until she died in
1973 at the age of 102. A deep
respect for history seems to

Keims and Kolles, and
Sylvania was obviously no
exception. Recalling how her
aunt came by the name
Sylvania Penn, Miriam
explained that Sylvania,
having been christened
without a middle name, in
time added the “Penn”
herself, “because Sylvania
Penn was the name of
William Penn’s daughter.”
