I was born and raised on this farm, before joining the Army at the age of nineteen. I wanted something of the overall view for memories and to show my grandchildren my family home. This picture was taken in 1987 and the structure is the same, as it was, when I lived there.

This farmstead was traded for another piece of ground by my great grandfather, Gardner Stovall in the late 1960's. This farm was built by Duncan Coal Company of Greenville, KY. It was the pristine beef cattle operation during the 1960's in our area. My great grandfather operated this farm until his death in 1985. The farm is still in the same family, although most of the buildings are gone or almost gone. I wanted this picture to be able to show my son what the old barn place used to look like when his great, great grandad was alive. This will always be a great treasure for my family to keep. Thanks Ralph! You were more than helpful!

I was born on this farm as the next to youngest of 10 children. I have 6 brothers and 3 sisters. At this time I am 64 years old. My dad lived here until he passed away at nearly 86 years. My brother tore down the old house that was just behind the trailer my dad and him lived in for a number of years. He also tore down the old barn that sat just south of the little white pole building. My brother sold the acreage to another person recently. We still own the farm. This picture was taken in 1979, the year my dad passed away. I wish there was an earlier photo where all of the original buildings were still in tact.

It is neat to look back and see the old buildings and trees. Many of the old fence rows are still the same today.

I had a chance to buy a photo shorly after we bought our farm in the early 90's but didn't do it at that time. I had regreted not buying it for years but when I seen your company I knew I could have another chance to do so. I now have that picture and one a couple of years ago and plan on getting another in a couple more years after we finish a couple of building projects that we have plans for. Thanks for your help.

Our farm has been in the family for over 100 years. The house in this picture was built by my great-grandparents, is where I grew up, and where I live to this day. Many of the outbuildings are gone now, including the barn. Having this picture warms heart and brings a smile to my face every time I pass by it. It reminds me there were times when things didn't move so fast and family always came first, "The Good Ole' Days".
