16|2013 Vacation with Mom (May 12, 2013)

Saturday we flew in to Charlotte, NC where we rented a car and drove north to Galax, VA and spent 3 days.  Galax is the area that my maternal grandmother lived from the age of 7 until 16 and there are still many relatives in the area.  Mom and I throughly enjoyed our visit that included hearing stories and touring the old homestead areas.  By midweek we were in Richmond, VA where we spent a full day doing genealogy research in the state library.  By Friday evening we were in Durham, NC where we lived from my 6th grade year through my freshman year in college.  On Mother’s Day we attended Sunday School and worship service at our old  church in Durham and we were blessed with great visits with old friends.  Monday we flew back to Oklahoma City.

This 9 day vacation with my Mom will always be a treasure full of memories to me.  Here are just a few pics from our visit in Galax:

My great, great grandfather, George Lineberry, had many acres of land that he divided among his children. Baxter is proudly lying on some of that land that is owned by George’s descendants through his son Tommy.

Known as Pot Rock on Crooked Creek near Galax, VA. My great grandfather Jacob W. Lineberry was one of many baptized here through the years.
