I am SO excited to offer these photos to you! I have just finally gotten a really good scanner and am thrilled beyond belief that I can finally share these with everyone. I must say that these photos are mostly borrowed. Some things as you'll note below aren't photos but articles, poems written (some will be transcribed as they are typed) and other little goodies. I'm just so happy! ;-)
In any case, keep checking back as I have A LOT of things I'm going to be adding. You ought to see the stack my grandmother lent to me! May the Lord bless her as I know He has. So, give me some time and you'll find that there are indeed many treasures here that even non-relatives will find helpful. Especially if you live in the Sumter County, Georgia and even surrounding counties.
Just one more thing... some pages have comments about memories or stories that were told to us. They may even have a transcribed poem on them. Just remember to keep checking back for more. There's a lot to come.
Note: The Hi
means the original VERY
high resolution picture and there are no comments or stories. I don't recommend looking at it unless for some reason you really need to. The 1st link is sufficient for viewing. The 1st link of obits, letters, and articles will still take awhile to load. This is so that you can actually read it. I can fix them all later but right now I'm just trying to get them up here to view.

- HoldenClan's Trip to Alaska, notes by Rubye Katherine Bass.
We moved to Alaska in October 1995 and drove from St. Stewart, GA to Ft. Wainwright, AK. My mother traveled with us and since we would be in remote unfamiliar areas, my Grandmother wanted to keep track of us in case something happened. Little did we know that she would include little notes (as she is famous for doing) for future reference. What resulted is something akin to the old Oregon Trail Diaries that is a wonderful addition to our scrapbook! As we reviewed it, we then remembered things that we had forgotten. We had no idea that she took these notes until we found them. God Bless my Grandmother! The pages will take a good while to load, so please be patient.
- Lawrence Welk Autograph. Yes, he REALLY signed the letter.
more to come........
