Call Scott Griffin at 850 994 8108 to go see it close up. I am a friend. Here is an honest assessment. It looks like a dump from a distance. BUT it is SOLID. The inside is very nice wood. The outside has given way to great exterior paneling recently. Not quite done yet but a handyman could be totally done with this in a couple of well planned days. Scott works on it between jobs. The property is pretty isolated. Neihbors either side - see the aerial. Plenty of room to use as an RV Port out in the country. Small town of Jay is nearby.

Crockett in the war of 1812 - The Creek War
With about 1000 men - 180 plus American troops plus 800 plus Chickasaw and Choctaw troops, the Cleanup expedition came AFTER returning with Jackson from Pensacola to Fort Montgomery around December 12. Jackson went on to New Orleans. Uriah Blue and Russel and of course - Crockett remained to "Kill up Indians" on the SCAMBY and west FL over to Holmes Creek.

A day in Jay - having fun with photos in the museum and in the town. I was working on some shots to spruce up the Museum website and facebook pages. We also need a new brochure. Jay is quite photogenic. Its a small town in the Florida Panhandle. Just under ALabama. The museum is open from 10-3 on Friday and Saturday. Private tours on other days can be arranged. Come enjoy the museum. There are several nice places to eat in Jay so you can make a nice trip out of it.

More shots - with Daniel Campbell, great great grandson of Mary Elizabeth Haynes Howell whom we suspect was the owner of the "gutar harp" mandolin.

Southern River Loggers preparing to make a start on takeout sites on the Perdido River in conjunction with Alabama's FOREVER WILD project. With the river clear of log jams and the wood responsibly recovered from the river and banks, the canoe and walking trails along the river will bring nature to thousands. See www.riverloggers.com

A day in Jay. I had museum duty this day and took advantage of some time there to grab photos for website and brochure use. The town of Jay is a photogenic little farm town in the Florida Panhandle. Cotton and Peanuts and beef and timber are the main agricultural products. The water tower outside of town is painted like a big cotton boll. The earth is just ready for some planting to happen. The rain today and the next few days will set up the conditions perfectly. Mr. Boutwell (in the overalls) has a farm store in town with LOTS of garden seed choices. Mr. Mason got him to pose for some of these shots and joined in as well.

A morning at the Raisler's. they ahve over 80 varieties of flowering plants, mostly azaleas. This day was great morning light before we left to have breakfast at Ace's in Milton, FL. These azaleas have the most intense color and with good light - the results are amazing.

My cousin, Kittye Campbell Norris - found this in a case way in the back, high in a closet in our grandma's old house. The house was bult about 1935 and is currently a renovated cottage and is rented out. We THINK the "guitar harp" Mandolin was our Great Grandma's. Mary Elizabeth Haynes Howell lived in the Chumuckla house with Grandma and Grandpa for periods of time - and spent time with other of her children as well in her later years. The instrument is from the 1885-1895 period and was common for in home entertainment. It has beginner music sheets with period tunes. She may have had the guitar harp at the old Howell Homestead which stood about where the current home of Samuel Howell is located on Howell PItt Road, North of Chumuckla.  Grandma Dessie was not a musician, but there was always a large upright piano in the living room. Our Aunt Elizabeth must have learned music on that. We may be wrong, but our best guess is that this older instrument came to the house with our Great Grandma as some point and never left.  It would require a total rework of strings to update it and the value of a working model is in the range of $100 on Ebay.  Kittye asked that it be donated to the Jay Museum - in Jay, Florida. Now it is there to kindle imaginations of old times around the fireplace, singing along to the strum of a guitar harp. Here is a similar instrument on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tN2RQ-QChk
