Thoughts from the Bumpy Road

Due to the construction in the square it has been impossible to keep going. Maybe the solution could be DON’T REPLACE THOSE PARKING METERS. As the others start failing, let people purchase them to plant in their flowerbeds, use as mailbox posts, or even light poles. Come on folks this is the age of recycling and Monroe County has a plethora of doit yourselfers. These parking meters are antiques! Maybe one of the current resale markets would like to purchase them to make a profit. Again how much money have these boxes truly generated in the past 5 years? HUMMMM.

By 1901, according to this letter, all debts were paid, and he had close to $300 in the bank. By 1901, Barnet and Priscilla Adamson had moved closer to New Matamoras, where he would die in 1910. (Excerpts from Adamson -Duvall and Related Families by Ree Adamson Fraelich) Barnett and John were half-brothers through their mother Nancy Smith Tice. John Solomon Tice (1866-1926) was the son of Solomon Tice III (1837-1868) and Nancy Smith Tice Adamson (1824-1912). Solomon Tice III was a son of Solomon Tice (1783-1864) and Rosannah Cline Tice (17931873). So, we have our Cline Family Connection through Rosannah, the daughter of George Cline (1740-1801).
