Well, once again I have been too (pick one) (busy, lazy, tired, preoccupied, insensitive) to keep up with my blogging. Let's go with busy if we can. Monday my brother and I took a road trip to Tennessee, North Carolina,and back to Ohio. We stopped and saw out great grandfather's grave in Newcomb Tn. Then we went on to the land title office for Campbell County in Jacksboro.We found the deed to some property my great, great, great grandfather had sold in 1833. Fifty acres and a house for 5 cents.It is presumed that it was sold to a son in law but a nickel is still cheap. The deed index did not show when he purchased the land so it had to be before Campbell county was formed in about 1805. There may be a record of it in Anderson county which Campbell was carved out of. That mystery is for another trip. We scooted on down to Asheville for a truckload of clay through a heavy downpour that lasted all day. The good folks at Highwater took care of us and we headed back north. Nice to spend some quality time with the family. I got home about 10 pm tired but pleased.
