My great grandparents farm (Frank and Georgia "Beth" Abelt) located along highway 131 between LaFarge and Viola. That is their old tobacco shed that you can see a corner of across the road.

Hi Laura,
Did your great grandparents farm other things from tobacco? Did you visit this property often while growing up?

Hi Alexis,
Yes, I spent a lot of time there as a child. However, since they were my great grand parents, they were no longer farming when I was growing up. My aunt and uncle bought the farm from them and were there for a few years, but due to my cousins severe asthma, they were unable to stay.
My grandparents farm is directly behind this farm (there is a seperate photo here). It was a dairy farm and my grandpa also raised hay and corn. He retired from farming in 1984.
