O is for Occupations

watch O





is for Occupations.


According to census data, most of my family were farmers.  There’s the occasional blacksmith and shoemaker, an even more occasional preacher.

These two pictures belong to a small set that is, I believe, the only pictures I’ve found, so far, showing any of my ancestors working.  My grandfather went to Newport Tennessee to survey in 1934.  The only other fellow I know is Ralph Holt.  C may be Curtis Holt and W may be Walt Morris.  I do wonder how that trip went. They seemed to have an all right time.
