McAfee Knob - James McAfee Sr 1707-1769 McAfee Knob is one of the most photographed spots on the Appalachian Trail as it winds its way through Virginia. It's a feature of Catawba mountain located in Catawba, Roanoke County, Virginia. Named after James McAfee. James McAfee was a Scotts-Irish immigrant who settled in the Catawba Valley in the late 1730's. On July 23, a very pretty woman with an old-fashioned red dress and with red hair will sometimes appear on the knob. Frequently seen by men but not by women, she is supposed to be the spirit of a woman who committed suicide on that date over a hundred years ago. According to the lore, she beckons men to join her in jumping off the edge to their deaths, and supposedly will sometimes try to push them off.
Martin on left, Herbert M. Senseny in middle, Mary Jane (Jennie) Senseny (Chapman) on right. Not sure where this was taken (Niagara Falls?). This photo has been restored by my daughter Sarah recently. Guessing at when photo was taken, but Herbert (my grandfather) was born in 1884 and he looks about 4 years old, hence the 1888 date.

He Was in Montana because of his service in the Army, between 1914-1923. He married Lila Pauline Harvey on 19 September 1916 in Livingston, Park, Montana. Their daughter, Harriet Genevieve, was born 29 April 1917 in Big Timber, Sweet Grass, Montana. They divorced on 31 January 1919 in Livingston, Park, Montana. If you know any details about this photo, please share. We have no information since the box was found after Frank's death.

Scheffler Family Photo "Colorado": This is one of a series of photographs in an album that I inherited from my great-aunt, Edna Lucille Fuller Johnson (1903 - 1988.) I believe the photos were taken by her father, Frederick L. Fuller (1871 – c.1915.) As Mr. Fuller died when she was still a child, I have very few clues to his life. Most of the photos are of rivers in New Jersey and other states. I think his interest in rivers related to hydro-electric plants that he may have helped to establish. There are also family photos that probably record the members of his grandfather's household prior to 1903. The Scheffler family lived on Jasper Street, Paterson, New Jersey. Unfortunately, unlike the river photos, there are no names recorded in the album for family members. Fred Fuller can only be found on two federal census reports. The first listing is on the 1880 census of Paterson, Passaic, New Jersey, where he is a nine year old living with his grandfather, Theodore Scheffler. The second listing is on the census of 1900 for Frederick and his wife Nana or Nannie Blackley (1879 - 1838.) In that year, he is listed as an electrician, living in Essex, East Orange, New Jersey. According to family lore, Fred met his future wife, Nana Blackley, when he went to Franklin, North Carolina to set up an electric plant.

One of the Godforsaken places where my great grandparents, Dr. Frank Ellis and Laura Dickson Ellis, lived. Modern conveniences were almost unheard of back in those days in rural America. How he practiced medicine, I can't even imagine.
