Myrte Harmon at school - Abt. 1905

She is the girl in the doorway to the left of the male teacher. She was about 15-16 at the time.  Note the huge timbers in the log cabin school.  Don't have a location yet.

The Tri-County House

Home of William Lee Farris Jr. and Sr., (my wife's (Wilma Lavelle Farris) grandfather and greatgrandfather).  It is mentioned in "An Adair Co. KY History, Vol I" by Michael C. Watson.  On page 44 he states that Adair, Green and Taylor Counties have a common corner in the western room of this home.  It probably made paying taxes, voting etc. difficult to determine.
