Reflections of a young soldier in the windows of this house.
Six generations of my mothers family, lived here. My grandmothers home was almost identical to this 1920 home and was a short 2 miles from this one. This oak is 100 years plus.
My mothers parents - born in 1900 and 1904
Her grandparents in 1886 and 1987
Her Great Granny was born in 1862 and lived until I was 6 years ( my dad killed Great Granny 's rooster when it attacked me)
my dad’s parents were born in 1880 and 1886 his grandparents born during the civil war.
This war was 160 years ago, but my fascination lives on because of living with all the above ancestors who talked and talked about the war.
