    I really enjoyed your pictures and have shared some of them with my family and friends on facebook i hope you don't mind. The main reason i did this is because i have started a facebook page titled Stony Fork School Pictures All Classes and just couldnt resist not sharing a couple i hope you dont mind! I posted a link to your page on my Facebook  as well.                                                                                                         Thanks Tony Phillips

    I just found these pictures. I recently was at Stoney Fork's reunion and saw a few photos. My grandparents lived in Clinchmore, and as a child, I lived in Pee Wee.. I remember hearing stories about the flood, and seeing these photos helps me understand just how bad it was.
    Thank you

      You are more than welcome, Tammy....glad they were there for you! Do you have any of that era that I could scan or copy and add to my website that would be of interest to others? Ray

        I have some of my grandparents,but I can't find any of Clinchmore during that time. I will ask around and if any of my family has any, I will let you know. My grandparents were John and Jessie Wallace and Noah Ward.

          Wow!  John Wallace and Noah Ward.  I remember my Daddy driving my grandparents (Henry & Mollie Byrge)  to a Noah Ward's home.  Was there a WillaDean or Irene living there?  Do you have any Curnutts or Wilsons on the Wallace side?  If so, contact me at mailto:.

          Is there any way that I could possibly get a copy of the ones you have of Clinchmore? I visit over there at least 3 times a month, and always try to go up toward the church to look around. I feel connected with my grandparents when visiting there. I grew up on stories of them living there and visiting there after the flood with them. I only wish I could remember all the stories, and tales they told.

    Thanks for sharing all of these pictures. Some I've seen but most I have never seen. My brother David sent me the link to your web site.
    Thanks again for all of your hard work.

    Hi, I liked your nostalgic photos very much. Times goes so fast! There's a beautiful text by a french poet, Rutebeuf, who lived 800 years ago : 'que sont mes amis devenus, que j'avais de si près tenus, et tant aimés... Le vent les aura emportés...". Something like this in english : "what have my friends become, I loved them so much, the wind has probably blown them away". Best regards. Patrick.

    Pop those are great photos. I'm glad you take the time to do all that work. I'm glad the memories of our family are still kept alive by people who care enough to do all that work.

    Love you -- Chris

      Thanks Son....I wish everyone felt that way. I sometimes wonder why I even bother with all this Genealogy and taking, working on, and posting these pictures on-line for family and friends - that is until I get a comment like yours! Makes it all worth it.

      Thanks,

      Dad
