Joey and Mary Alice found Grandma Dowdel's wedding dress and Grandpa Dowdel's wedding suit, a stovepipe hat, and an old, tattered quilt. They also find old valentines that Grandma and Grandpa Dowdel had made and given to each other when they were young. Mary Alice wore the dress when she competed in the ballroom dance contest, and Grandma Dowdel used the stovepipe hat and quilt to fool the bank into believing Effy Wilson's house had once hosted Abraham Lincoln.
