Our Sons and Ancestor's Barn

 Here is a picture of my sons Rocky and Adam standing in front of an old farm building outside of Franklin, Macon County, North Carolina, over 30 years ago. It is unique because they are standing on the property of their great-g-g--grand parents John and Nancy Sumner Ray. The property had been kept in the family, handed down for generations. When we were there, a 90 some-year old bachelor Cecil Baldwin was the present owner, who was also a descendent of John and Nancy Ray. When Cecil died I think the descendant line ended. Not only did it end, I heard the house burned down. Poof!

On the 1850 Census John Ray was a Wagon Maker.
