Traveling the Road My Ancestors Once Traveled: 
                      Down in Quarry Land

Some of the jobs our ancestors worked was long and hard. Looking back over their lives I decided to trace their steps down into the Quarry they once worked in. As I traveled up and down the hills and mountains I learn and listen to the wind, felt the pain in climbing over rocks and sweating as I began my decent down into the pit. This limestone Quarry on Ruffner mountain was no joke. The 3 mile round trip taught me about being strong and staying the course. Seeing how and where my ancestor worked gave me more courage to keep on researching and to never forget what they accomplish in their lifetime.

Below are a few photos of the Old Limestone Quarry at Ruffner.

BAAGG Remembering....


Robert Kennedy Jr.



 From Birmingham, Alabama





A Hero's Spirit Came Home!

The Vietnam Memorial came to Fultondale Alabama  this year and along came Roberts Spirit. We visited the memorial to locate his name.  Thank you Tom Combs for the Leadership you gave Robert as his Platoon Leader in Vietnam. Because of him positioning himself over a bomb that fell in the manhole, his fellow army buddies lives was spared.
