Wordless Wednesday: The Old Home Place

It's an awful picture, to be sure, but such a treasure.  The original photograph, faded and deteriorating, was found amongst my grandmother's papers in 1996.   Samuel Bryson McAdams, her grandfather, was born in 1845, a son of Thomas McAdams and Cynthia Stephenson.  His father was the postmaster at Locust Mount in Washington County, Tennessee.  I have driven the roads near Locust Mount trying to find the house, but it seems it is no longer standing.  I fantasize that that small white streak on the porch was a McAdams child peering out at the photographer.
