Fortunately, Daddy took the best possible route and I didn't feel ill at all. The visit was really nice; they're awfully sweet people, and it was great to see them again. After we left their house, we drove up on Reedy Ridge, where Daddy and his family lived from the time he was almost 11 years old (sometime in 1944) until he married Mom in 1953. Then, he and Mom lived in a small house just up the road from his family. The house is gone now, but here is the site on which it stood:
Here's a view of the road leading from the house back off the ridge. The house would have been in the field off to the left from this viewpoint:
Willard Sweeney was Daddy's first cousin. James F. Trivett, Jr. was Mom's uncle. Actually, he wasn't a "Jr."; his name was James Ferrell Trivett, son of James Austin Trivett and Draxie Vanover Trivett.After the visit to Clincho, we made our way back home. It was a good, if tiring, day.
