baptized in the dress made by her great-great grandmother

The Chetek Alert: "many baptismal gowns are handed down from generation to generation, but one dress with ties to a New Auburn family has made its way through six generations and more than 130 years of christenings.
The gown was made by New Auburn resident Dot Weyers' great-grandmother Caroline Sommers in the 1870s for the christening of her six children, including Dot's grandmother, Anna Schaefer"
