Another grey November Day...
To cheer up we went to drop letters off at the Post Office...no contact there and I used an antiseptic wipe to open the drop box. Then we recycled....there was one person there so we waited in the car until he left.
Then it was off to the cemetery where no one was alive. I needed a few photos of headstones to replace some bare grave photos. I need to go back there one day soon and get a few more photos...I have a list now. I made that list after I got home. I also need some obituaries...but that will have to wait until I can go inside the County Historical Museum and do some research. It is something I should have done last winter/before Covid. Anyways now I can make the list of what I need...it will be a start.
We had some exciting news...a relative got in touch with us... a fourth cousin of Far Guys on his Maternal side of the family...and it seems Far Guy could belong to the Sons of the American Revolution and our daughters to the Daughters of the American Revolution. I have to do a bit more research to back everything up ...but it is a real possibility...so fun to connect with someone else researching to share info with.
Then it was off to the old Linnell School corner to take a photo for a friend. The corner looks so much different after the new road construction.
I grew up on one side of this corner and Far Guy's Grandparents lived on the other side of this corner a long time ago. Far Guy's Mom taught at this school before she was married and then again after the war.
