NW Okie's Corner
Today was the day that 1940 U.S. Census archives came out and you can start your search in the 1940's collection featuring more than one billion hand-selected U.S. records to help you locate your family in the 1940 and years beyond. You might find it overloaded with requests, though, so keep trying.
Gerald was telling us this week that there was another older Hugh McLaughlin that married the daughter (Agnes Nancy Gwin) of David Gwin. The Sq. Hugh McLaughlin Gerald was talking about last week was born in 1801 and married the granddaughter of David GWIN.
I also asked Gerald about the "Old Sam Lindsay place" and to see if I can get a recent photo of the place, where it was located. I understand it is where the Gwin/Echard cemetery is located. Would love to see some photos of it today and how to get to it from Monterey or Mountain Grove, Virginia.
The last time I was there was some 40 years ago when Dad flew us back to Virginia when my sister, Dorthy, was attending Greenbrier College for Women. Anyway, I remember a few things from that trip like the huge staked tomatoes, Virginia ham and homemade biscuits that Sam's wife, Lucy made for us. I believe now that some of the "old" Virginia photos I have put up on Picasa and Flickr showing my dad, grandmother Constance Warwick McGill and Gwin/Echard relatives posing in front of what I believe is the Gwin/Echard farm place near Mountain Grove, in the Highland Valley of Virginia. We know that the GWIN/Echard cemetery is located on the "Old Sam's Lindsay" place, and the house was/is a two-story house. Is it still standing, though? We would love to see what it looks like today and if it is still owned within the Gwin/Echard family.
Stop the War On Women, middleclass, & Senior Citizens!
Good Night & Good Luck!
