A Fine Story: The Beard of Joseph Palmer

"Bill Iles" by Amanda Hext
“Bill Iles” by Amanda Hext

I recalled this wonderful story while visiting with my uncle, Bill Iles, who has worn a long beard since the late 1960’s.

This article, by Stuart Holbrook, was written in the mid-20th century.

Palmer is buried near the present home of my son, Terry.  On my next trip to New England, I plan to visit Palmer’s grave.
