Their Tombstone in Oakhill Cemetery
Tombstone of their daughter ~ Fannie
The family photo taken on the front porch of the J.K. Magers
home is of John & Eliza and their family. Behind them and
on the wall there is a board with lots of pictures.
John Magers (my great grandpa) loved taking pictures of people around town.
He would hang them up on the porch for everyone to come by and see.
Magers, father of submitter, Katherine Crabtree) said his Gramps used
to make homemade taffy and sell it when the carnival would come to town.
That old house in the picture was scary to walk in but he HAD to show me where he used to stay upstairs and something
about how his Gramps made his own booze. I took a picture of the
stairs inside the house because they were neat.
The house sits right next to railroad tracks and Dad said there
was always what he called hobos stopping and asking for stuff.
My great-grandparents, John King Magers & Eliza Jane Elmore, place where Dad (Roby
Magers) lived part of his childhood with them. Their house is
right down the road from his parents' home. It is standing, but barely, and
was donated to the city years ago. Behind this house there is a storm
cellar with words over the door carved in concrete that it was built in
1922 by John and Eliza Magers.
