i remember going to this house once when i was very young
there had been a death in the family, don't remeber what year, what i remember most is that one of the ladies was smoking a corn cob pipe.

my parents, grandapretns and several aunts and uncles are buried at harts cemetery.

i would like to find out more about this family, as far as i know they lived in hardee co for the most of thier marriage, robert raymond died in 1950, his body lay in state at thier house until burial, i was only fours old at the time so that memory will always be with me.
