Finding a Jewel

Rea, George - Early History of Greene County, p. 82

George Rea, a well known and highly respected Irish citizen, took up his abode in the country with the intention of remaining with us. He had not been here long until he found a Jewel more dear to his heart than anything he had left in Old Ireland, or anything else he had found in America. But alas! in later years he lost his Jewel, and for many years he has “trodden the wine press alone.”
