Beaverdam Virginia

BD222

The E.C. Terell store and home next door are going to ruin because of mis-guided people that own the land. My granddad was the train agent at the turn of the 19th century and my mother was born in the station house in 1914. Here are some pictures of downtown Beaverdam during better times.

The little girl is Frances Vest Harris (Aunt Ticky), in front of E.C. Terrell’s home where locals would gather to wait for train.

A collage I did of Mom and grandad a decade ago. Here are some more Harris family links (the search works great in the widget to right).

Found this picture I took in 2003. The pano at top was shot the day of this post.

Train Agents House

The house my mom was born in across from station that was owned by the C & O Railroad. It’s still there but really built up with add-on’s.

    O3. Nice photos. I’m a genealogist researching the Vest family of Louisa, and would be interested in corresponding with you about Frances Vest Holland (Mrs. F. C. Harris). My wife is one of your Vest cousins.

    Aunt Lut is someone I’d really love to know more about (have no information on her or what her whole name was).
