Photo 93-BJA-35


This is my grandparents farm. James K and Mattie Gabbard. They moved there in 1945. They milked cows almost all the years they lived there. Grandpa died in 1965. Grandma lived there until the early 2000. They are both gone now and so is this farm. Every building and the woods were taken down. It is all farmland. Lots of good memories there from my childhood.

Hi Jeannie, thank you for sharing your memories with us. It sounds like your grandparents held a special place in your heart, and we're honored to have helped you remember their farm! Can you tell us more about Jay County in the 80s? What was life like then? We're looking forward to hearing more!
