Our visit to the cemeteries to verify dates was quite enjoyable although unbearably hot. I left the house to pick up Laddie shortly after 7:00 A.M., but by the time we got to Ringgold, it was HOT. Here are some interesting cars we saw in Jamestown.
The cars were parked right next to the lot where the two story house my aunt and uncle lived in when they were small was located. The house is no longer there, but the story is that my Uncle Max and Aunt Carmen loved watching the people at the train station from the second story window.
Also, on a back road road that led to Jamestown, we found a road named after the family near where my grandfather grew up.
And an interesting skeletal tree.
Here is the way I documented the different dates by taking photos so we didn't have to spend too much time writing things down in the terrible heat. This is the marker for Laddie's grandparents, my great grandparents. His grandfather was born in Scotland, but his parents came here when he was very young (I'm not really too sure about all of this...). He is the one who nicknamed Laddie, but died when Laddie was two.
