Oh, I love things like this! Personal family history is fascinating to me. I think it's a great treasure to be able to ride past the places you knew growing up. There's a mountain in north GA with my maiden name, that was owned by my father's ancestors at one time - now owned by the power company. There's an old family cemetery at the top with many of my ancestors buried there - just love to visit it and think of the family history! And there's an old homeplace in upstate SC, way out in the country, where my grandfather grew up. It was sold long ago, but we can still drive by and see the land (house has been torn down or remodeled). I feel a connection to that land even though I've never stepped foot on it! LOL Loved your post today, Deb!

What a rich family history you have. I love the old mansion. My husband and I bought an old mansion in Indiana many years ago and restored it. At that time we only had one child but there were eight bedrooms! It was quite a job keeping that big place clean. Thanks for sharing about your wonderful family history.

What a gift to be able to visit the old homeplaces. I'm sure it would be sweet and little sad at the same time. I always feel that way when I drive by my old home.

Deb, what a gorgeous Mansion! I have to agree, it is very enjoyable to hear about someone elses rich family history. Thanks for sharing!
