He looks very much like Far Guys Maternal Grandfather..so we will put him in that part of the family. Until someone corrects me. Yes, he was a brother to Martha Cripps Abbott who married William Abbott.
He apparently liked dogs.
This little dog liked him very much..and his chair too.
I think he was from Canada, that is what Far Guys Mother always said.
This is Cripps's Creek. Either Uncle Will or parts of his family lived near this creek long enough to get it named after them. I am not sure what other people call this creek..but we call it Cripps’s Creek.
We stopped there the other evening so I could take a photo. The creek is low and barely flowing and the rushes are very tall.
When I was in Confirmation Class on Saturday mornings for hours, we were often entertained with the Pastors “Miracles”. One day he was driving along this road very fast and the culvert was washed out and the water was rushing over the road. He prayed..and the Angels or maybe even God helped his car fly over the creek and landed it safely on the other side.…that is what he told us. I always smile when I drive down this road..especially when I cross Cripps’s Creek:)
