    Back in the late 1970’s, our school bus would stop here to pick up the children who lived there at the time. Take away the vines—the house hasn’t changed much. I remember the little stream of smoke coming from the chimney and the children smelled of it. The yard used to be decently kept dirt.

    Hi, I am Larry Bacon, grandson of Ulmer and Lawson McKinley. I was born in 1941, and I recall your grandmother and grandfather very fondly. As children my sisters and I stayed with our grandparents while our mother took summer school classes at UGA. Your grandparents would come to the store often, and I recall Edgar as being quite a character as he would play around with us. I also remember your mom and dad who were very much fun to be around. I enjoyed seeing your Siloam photos…a couple of items…Conley’s service station was originally across the highway and the one shown was previously owned by Joe McKinley, a relative. I am familiar with a little of the history during the late ‘40s and ‘50s if there is anything with which I could help. Thanks
