Who Were These People?

Before, I had told you how I would like to know more about our farm.

And I have posted other pictures of it here.

This is where the original house once stood. These are the foundation columns that remain. There are three still standing.

They are about eye level with me.

The bottles are what I found yesterday on my trip to the original house site.

It was too beautiful and sunny to stay inside. So I took another walk around the farm. It was about 70 outside.

Here’s a close-up of one of the columns.

And another. I looked to see if there was a stamp of some sort telling me a year or a name of the company on the bricks. Not a thing that I could see.

There were only a few bricks to start out the columns. Then they were finished with the rock that is found here on the farm.

And there are several pieces of broken foundation lying around.

Here is the original hand dug well covered with a car hood to keep unsuspecting souls from falling in.

Notice how old the car hood looks.

Here is looking down into the dry well.

These are easter lillies that have begun to sprout. They are in what would have been the front yard of the originial house site.

These are in the back yard.

The trees in the next two pictures are in the back yard and to the right of the original house site.

Each time I visit this site it makes me even more curious to know more about the farm.

Did the lady of the house plant those lillies?

And did she look forward to them sprouting each year, just like I do when I search for them this time of year.

And how big were those trees when this house was standing?

Were they sapplings, just beginning, like the trees that surround these majestic beauties?

Who were these people? Where did they come from? Why did they leave?

SomedayI’ll know. And I’ll share it with you.
