When I became older (18 ?) I became interested in photography and would always take my camera with me, I was always taking pictures of the old house. One time my dad and I were at the house and in back there was another building something like a smoke house, although my dad said that the family had lived in it, while the big house was being built. Well I went in side and found a lot of old Newspapers from the 1870 and 1880’s, I still have some. I thought they were neat and that was about it, till I got interested in Genealogy. The house was always known as the Easter place, and the papers had a tag with the name of Easter on it, so I started looking in to the name and this is what I found.
Note. The pictures were taken over the years, the B. & W. picture was taken some time in the late 1970 or early 1980’s this would be the last time the house would be seen as it was taken down some time in the 1980’s my aunts house now stands in it place.
