I am looking for pictures of my Grandparents' home/farm that WAS located about 1/2 mile north of town on Hwy 800.
I don't know the address, BUT it was unique in that there was an OLD wooden garage on the near left corner of the property in which the County Maintenance Dept. parked a dump truck in it back in the 1940's.
Their names were Harry Thomas and Mary Nabb Hamilton.
Any info you might share will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Johns, Alabama or now North Johns became a town in the early 1800's and was a Mining Town established by Henry Debardeleben who was essentially the founder of Bessemer. He named the town after one of his Mine Foremen Llewellyn Johns who worked the mines there. The U.S. Post Office was established there 1n 1899 and closed in 1973. Johns was once a booming mining town which boasted of many establishments. There were many General Stores as well as Banks, Furniture Stores, Several Saloons, Drug Stores,Cafe's, Movie Theatre, Doctor's and Dentist's, Funeral Parlor, Hotels, Barbers, Gunsmith/Blacksmith, A full time Police Department and Jail and many other businesses. By the 1920's Debardeleben Coal had left the area and Underground Mines were opened by the Black Diamond Coal Mining Company who mined coal there until the late 50's and after closure a steady decline of the town began and now there are no longer any businesses and the population once hundreds is only 142.

Ft. Chartres is such a beautiful park and we are so sad to hear that the State officials are shutting it down - Can't people in the town and out do something to help save it. How about a petition to start. I would be happy to help.

My Great Aunt Mary Rhodes lived in the family home on 528. Her parents,Clark and Mattie (Nickerson) Rhodes lived there and raised 4 children Elmo,Alma, Mary and Ernest. I have a picture of the family home in 1920 with window boxes made by Ernest Rhodes. He was a very creative and musical person who died too early in his wonderful life. Great Aunt Mary Rhodes had a model A Ford and drove it almost until she passed away. My sister Suzanne and I recall many great visits to this Montville home, and an occasonal ride in the model A. When I was a bit older I sketched Aunt Mary's home with her model A Ford parked by the house. It brings back great memories. I remember my mother, Winifred telling us that Mark Burr purchased Aunt Mary's model A. I am sure when my sister and I get together we can come up with more about Aunt Mary and the Rhodes family. We may even be able to scan some old pictures on the web site.

I evacuated with hurricane gustav to vernon parish. Myself along with my children and other individuals were sitting in our vehicles across from vernon middle school on NONA st. A citizen from the neighborhood walked across to us and brought us 2 gallons of water/cups, then came back with an ice chest and 3 boxes of poptarts for my children. I really would like to thank that gentleman for his kindness. It is people like that who make a horrible experience a more tollerable one. GOD bless him and his family. We are keeping him and his family in our prayers. Thank you! Calcasieu evacuee.

How come we let companies let Pilgrims bring in these top dollar management and they try to run our town. The locals who have been working for years in these business, get cheated, if you are not young and pretty, you do not get a promotion. If you don't give them what they want, you don't get a promotion. Keep these people out.

While many people who do not understand Downeast Maine may think it to be a bit "behind the times," I am a person who grew up in the small town of Jonesport and then moved away at age 19 out of necessity, not just choice. I could only wish that kids would have the same schooling experience I had as a child in the small, but very efficient schools in Jonesport, Maine.

Jonesport is a place where time slows down, and maybe there are not 24-hour stores or conveniences, but being able to see the stars and hear the crickets at night while smelling the salt of the ocean is reward enough for some. Some people may call it a "poor" town, with littered lawns, but I see a "simple" town where fisherman sometimes need to store their traps and tools on what land they have available. Some might even think the locals to be "suspicious" of "outsiders." This primarily stems from the negative comments made from some outsiders concerning the education, local accent and economic status of the area.

What you will get when you meet someone from Jonesport is an authentic welcome that may not necessarily be as warm as one you would expect from family, but also not syrupy fake and misleading. You know where you stand. I love my home town and being someone who has seen so many other places, my heart still comes back to the quaint, simple, slower-paced genuine town of Jonesport.

Fort Myers Beach on the south west Florida Gulf Coast is truly a piece of paradise. There are fabulous accommodations here from family vacation rental homes to upscale resorts and smaller inns. This is truly one of the best beaches in the area featuring 7 miles of white sugar sand public beach that is pet friendly with fido on a leash. In fact all of our fabulous family vacaiton homes are pet friendly and very well maintined. Forget VRBO - rent a home from someone who is there to take care of you with personal service. Great discounts to local attractions and restaurants. Sun Palace Vacations recommends the Ford and Edison Estates, Miromoar Outlet, Fleamasters Flea Market and great local dining on our web site at www.mybeachrental.us

I love our community. It is family oriented and culturally diverse. It's far enough away from the city to enjoy the rural feel, but close enough to access entertainment, quality health services, and ample employment opportunities.

I lived in New London for 6 years, 1961-67. Worked in the Crown Restaurant on State St. Still miss it but never was able to make it back, even for a visit. Hoping to find old friends from back then. Also, a few yrs ago I found about 40-50 photos of New London on webshots.com. Pictures of Bank St, State St, Courthouse, Library, St Mary of the Sea Church, & many more. I downloaded them to my computer but it crashed & I lost them all. These were not old-timey photos but fairly recent, like maybe during the past 10-20 yrs. I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone who can help me find old friends--both people & places.

I went to Camp Crescent (on Crystal Lake?) in Canaan, NH from 1957 to 1960. I am looking for contacts, photos, or other information about this camp and the Lawrence family who owned it. Thank you!

I went to Tapawingo Farm Camp on Big Bear Lake, Gouldsboro, PA from 1950 through 1956. My father (Charles Kane) met my Stepmother (Hazel Tubb) in the Summer of 1950 at this camp, and they married in the winter of 1950. I am looking for contacts, pictures, and other information about this camp that was owned by Mary and Pete Norton. Thanks!
