Photo Friday: From My Past

This is from the way distant past. About 10 years ago, Dan and I went on a road trip to find the graves of a pair of ancestors of mine: Sarah Jane Glenn Smith and her husband Andrew Jackson Smith. We found them in a little churchyard in Stoneville, North Carolina.

While we were taking pictures, a man asked us which family we were interested in. I told him, and he opened the church and showed us a plaque inside, inscribed: To the Glory of God and in Memory of our Grandfather: Joseph H. Glenn – 1827-1902. He told us that the church and the surrounding land for the graveyard had been donated by Joseph Glenn to the community.

This photo was taken with a 10-year-old digital camera. I have no idea what the make and model were; I imagine the resolution was 640×480 or something similar. I think we need to go back with better cameras :-)
