  3. This was a cow that was grazing all along the country side. There was no owner. Anybody could milk her for she was very quite. She never failed to fill the vessel of anyone who milked her. She seemed to be there to feed the poor & from the mercy of God. Of course 'the woman' had to come & brought a sieve to milk her in, She didnt & couldnt fill it & never gave milk after. She then disappeared from this part of the country Uncle Patch _ RIP often and often told me this story about the Glassnach
