On a cold winter day in January 1941,
I was born in a log cabin on my daddy's farm at Blairs in Pittsylvania
County, Virginia. From that day until August 1996, my only time to live
outside of that county was the four years I served in the U. S. Air Force.1
Both of my parents' families have been there for generations. So it's not
unusual that I have a great love for Pittsylvania County, Virginia: its
people, its land and its history.
I've spent years studying the earliest
settlers of these foot hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Some of my
findings are shown on these pages. For questions or information about my
posters of the area's history, please email me.
