Hattiesburg, Mississippi: Kin


We arrived at the home of our cousin, Jannelle, and her husband George, who showed us the most wonderful hospitality. They also shared these old photos with us.
Above, my grandfather's brother, John R. Jackson, in his wedding photo with bride Beda Lee (ca. 1930). Aren't they cute?


Above, John R. (the bigger boy) and his brother, my grandfather, Jabe Cook Jackson (ca. 1910).

We visited the cattle ranch of our cousins The Parkers. A beautiful spread.

Mooner and I at the Parkers' place, where we had (what else?) a fantastic steak dinner.


Downtown Hattiesburg - or what used to be downtown in "Hub City." Beautiful old buildings abound.


Hattiesburg. This building had trees growing up through the middle of it.
