Home   McDonough, GA.  
October, 1997

In March 1994 we went on a genealogy trip. We went down to Mc Donough, visit Virginia Rodgers Fall who is also a Selfridge Harper descendent. She is lovely and her southern hospitality reminded me of Mamma.

We all went out to the Harper Cemetery that she and her brother had lovingly restored. Then they took us to the Turner Methodist Church where the Turners are buried. Wade Hampton Turner was one of the founders of the church. The area is not far from Stone Mt. where the Diamonds lived. I have been to all those places before but never tire of walking where my ancestors lived and died. From Mc Donough we went south to Turtle Cove on Lake Jackson to look for Elijah Cornwell's grave. I think we found it but there were no tombstones, just two rocks for Elijah and his wife, Catherine Cavender Cornwell. So many of my pioneer ancestors just have a rock for a headstone. That makes me feel bad.

It was a fun trip. I just love doing all that.

Our friend and neighbor, Irene Mikita died in Nov.
