Another picture of the old Harper plantation taken in the 1890's.

Here's another picture of my great great grandfather's family.  Funny how I was writing about Family and home, and church.  Wonder what they would have wrote.  The lady in the far right holding the baby was my great great grandmother Sallie Vickers.  My Pepa's grandma.  She lived to the ripe old age of 105.  I remember my Pepa telling me she had her own special rocker that she had at the church, and once when he was in his younger years, he went off drinking or something, got into trouble, he didn't say what kind, but they wouldn't let him go to church.  Well his grandma Sallie wouldn't go for that, so she got her rocker and left the church.  The church did forgive my Pepa, because they had the rocker back in the church within the week.  My Pepa loved his grandma, he always talked about her with love.  Must have been a hard life back then.

Thanks for sharing these pictures. It's really interesting looking at the faces of people who lived a long time ago. I find myself wondering what their voices sound like, and their laugh, what they were fondest of ...and what worried them the most, things like that. {{{{Derek}}}  *Barb*
