Yesterday I went to visit one of our newly home bound members, a 94 year old. He lives with his nephew who normally takes him to Mass each Sunday, but the 94 year old hurt his leg and can't maneuver very well now.
They live about 40 miles from Macon in a small village, not really a village, of Hillsboro.
The same family has been on the same property since the late 1700's! The house I visited dates to 1817! In the 1950's they received electric service and put indoor plumbing! Keep in mind the nephew is of the same family who has lived there since the late 1700's!
The house today only has the indoor plumbing and electricity as the updates, plus an indoor kitchen. The detached kitchen which was common back in the day is still there but a separate bedroom today!
They have a family plot behind the homestead:
On my way there, I saw a dear grazing on the narrow two lane road I was on at 2:30 PM in the afternoon, and as I turned down the dirt road to this house, a giant wild turkey ran in front of my auto, and not the kind your imbibe.
