I thought I would follow last thursday's posting of the LittleBerry Self Jr bible with another posting on LB.
One day my dad and I decided to visit Ollie, a very elderly cousin of my grandfather who I believe at the time was about 92 years old, to see what kind of information she could give us about the family. Well, I hit the proverbial jackpot that day.
We had a wonderful visit with Ollie as I explained to her that I was researching the family and asked her questions about herself, her family and commonly shared ancestors. Then I asked her about any pictures. Well, when Ollie came out of the back room and had the above picture you could have knocked me over with a feather! And I was even more shocked when Ollie allowed me to take the original of the above picture home with me so that I may make copies of it. WOW!
She also had an original picture of Jonathan O'Neal, Littleberry's father-in-law and my 3 great grandfather. As if all of this wasn't good enough the best was for last when she told me the truth to a long wondered about family secret! That one will have to wait for another posting.
Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please come back again ;)
