Phyllis was mentioned in my last post. Leone loved her flowers and her garden.. This is all that is left of her flowers.. Good thing she is not here she would be so sad.. The house was a 5 bedroom house with kitchen, dining room and living room and one bathroom. She lived here with her husband John and daughter Nancy.
John farmed the 120 acres. handpicking the corn at one time and then bought a tractor and corn picking machine to pick the corn. To me this was very sad to see but know that life goes on.
This is the lean two that is next to the barn.. in the forground was her flower garden.. gone now.
The barn still stands so far and I'm sure by the end of the day it will be gone too. The company that is working on this project is hauling everything away.. No more house no more chicken house no more corn crib.
This is a view of the basement. It looks so small. When I went down into her basement it always seems bigger.
Here's the barn before it goes...John was so proud of his barn. The house was in front of the barn. I wish now I would of gotten up there before it got torn down. IT's just a memory now .
This young couple named Mike and Dawn DeMean bought the farm. They have 4 children. This is going to be a great place to raise the kids..
They go to our church and is a wonderful family.
So a day of history going down and now all that is left is the happy memories. I guess I would rather see this than all the old farm steads that are just sitting empty and falling down and looking very sad. Once upon a time there was a family that lived in these homes with children.
