Week 25 (June 18-24) – The Old Homestead: Have you visited an ancestral home? Do you have photos of an old family house? Do you have homesteading ancestors?

I have visited and been inside the home that belonged to my maternal great grandparents, Frank and Ophelia Bryant. The house is located at 1400 Fisher St in Morehead City, NC. The land was initially purchased by Ophelia's parents Alexander Hamilton Jones and Rosa Mitchell Jones in the early 1900's. Ophelia and Frank married in 1911 and by 1920 were able to build the house they would raise 7 children in. This is that house.

There is something special about being in the spaces our ancestors once lived. It provides another level of connection to those who came before us.
