I left for Piketon at 9:45 and when I got to the hotel found Will & Manda Anderson there. We soon had dinner and walked down to the old cemetery to visit the graves of those who had been put there from fifty to sixty years ago. When we came back I stopped at Florence Ware’s to find out some thing of the people living there.
It is strange to be in this old hotel where Father boarded as a young man and married Mother. Aunt Emma was born in this house.
A beautiful fall day.
