    My step-dad came from a family of 20. Raised 18 to adult hood. My father a family of 16. I think thats all they had to do in the winter on the farms. More farm hands /slaves to grow the veggies. My mom was in the field at age 3. she could ride bareback to town and was sent into the woods to bring back a cow at age 4 after dark. Talk about a hard scrabble life. My father was beat with a horse whip if he asked for food.

    My granddad was one of 11 or 13 or something. They lived in Denver. His dad one of the original teamsters, delivered coal in the winter and blocks of ice in the summer. We have an old photo of him with his horse and wagon.

    I just looked at your place on the google maps. See all those trees you put in along the fence line, so pretty sure I'm looking at the right place. Where do the chickens live?

    Yup, trees along the property line, along the road, and all over the place! You must have been in good shape digging all those holes. The pole barn looks big. Is that a fenced area between the barn and house?

    the thing is, I am not on the map. hahaa house was put here in 07. thats why the address is weird. this is a different address that brings you to the top of my road. you have to walk down a bit to see the house. there will be woods across the street and very close to lemon road. its 207 east county road 800 south madison indiana 47250 I must be right on the border between madison and versailles. again look for the little trees. and when i was looking it said updated in oct. 2013.
