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.
