Alfred's Death Registration

Theressa (Liscumb) said that Alfred Jones, after he married, moved on a farm at Winchester. The place was called Long Point, later West Winchester, now just Winchester. They had one cow, a yoke of oxen, a young horse and a few hens. The house had three chairs, a table, and a stove, an old cupboard for their few dishes, a bed and bureau, an old couch or lounge. Elizabeth cut up her wedding dress to make curtains for the windows, they had paper blinds. They cleared the farm, but first cleared enough land to plant potatoes, sugar cane (? sugar beets), some tobacco and vegetables the first year. In her account to Alfred Everett, Aunt Theressa said that her father made furniture for the house in his spare time.

Alfred made a living as a barn framer.

"Aug.31 - 1916. Residence of A. Jones" That is written on the back of the following photo in a hand that we don't recognize. It is interesting that there is such specificity in terms of the date. Usually we are left trying to guess the decade or even the century for older photos. The house is between Winchester and Inkerman Corner. As of 1996 the house was still there. The detail included here is small section of the complete photo, to see if anyone knows who the woman and lad are.
