September 1998

The house at Walnut Farm, from the south, is now deserted, but once it was the home of William Jessy and Jessie Ann ELLIOTT. When Jessie looked down the driveway to their house, the land before her had belonged to George and Fannie (GEORGE) COLBURN, who also farmed.

Walnut Farm house from the road (Andrew County Road #187). A hawk slowly circled above the vacant house.

McGLOTHLIN is a small cemetery several miles north of Walnut Farm and is where Jessie's mother's father and some of his children and grandchildren are buried. This picture was taken from the south. The tall stone to the right is for Emma Kate George Ashley, who died of TB in 1893. What is left of the tombstone for Enoch GEORGE, her father, is several feet farther north. Three parts are piled on top of each other. When we visited before, several years ago, you could tell that cattle had gotten among the stones and knocked them over. Now (September 1998), the cemetery is fenced-in to prevent that, and someone is mowing the open stretches between stones.

The cemetery viewed from the west on the road (Andrew County Road 182). The tall stone in the back is for someone in the Hobson family, and can also be seen from the previous cemetery picture.
