There is a one room house sitting where the mill was on the right. I didnt have the heart to tear it down as the rafters are quartered logs. There is a cemetary above my house on the hill and 3 of the previous owners here are buried there. 2 of them are looking down on this place. This farm was divided up and they gave 5 acres for the cemetary also. The original owner came from Virginia. Many were escaping british. Many of the graves here are from 1700 era

Purty cool.
Just last week, I went by my great aunts house" small town"
I spent many hours there as a young kid.
She died about 30 years ago. The house is now a dilapidated wreak and trees have taken over.
She was meticulous about keeping her yard immaculate.
Heck, it took be a bit to realized I was even looking at the same spot I spent many times as a little kid..


swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

You have to remember that 1 out of 3 Democratic Voters is just as dumb as the other two.

WRR, thanks for sharing. I love walking around the local cemeteries. I also have one about 200 yards from the house with civil war heros. Fascinating to read the stones and decipher the past
