My mother gave me this picture of my father's parents, Elige Arthur Horton and Imogene (Hall) Horton.

Elige Arthur is the son of Roy Reese Horton and his wife, Lucy Tennessee Kitchen.

Imogene is the daughter of George Sherman Hall and his wife Lucy Porter.

This is a photo of Imogene and Elige Horton working on their farm, according to the back of the picture, at Deer Creek,
which is now covered by the waters of Grayson Lake.

Imogene and Elige Horton are in this photo, the others I don't know. One of them may be my Aunt Judy.
On the back of this photo my father has written "cemetery near Shade Hollow".

The cemetery was just above the Heaberlin place and was the burial place of Lucy (Porter) Hall (Imogene's mother),
as well as her cousins. They were moved to Grayson Cem. due to the creation of Grayson Lake.
