Missouri Farmhouse

This is the farmhouse that my grandma grew up in in Shamrock, Missouri.  The couple on the front porch is my great grandparents – Reuben Canterbury Woodson and Mahala Ann Payton Woodson.  I have better pictures of them, but there is something that I really like about this picture.  I had the wonderful privilege of being on this property last summer.  The house was gone, but another had been built in its place.  It is still out in the middle of nowhere, but it is beautiful there.  I had never envisioned it being so green!  Maybe that is why the town was called Shamrock.  Our guides for this tour were Grandma’s nephew and his wife.  They took us for a Sunday drive out through to the farm, where she went to school, and where she went to church.  We also went to the cemetery where many of the family were buried.  What a great trip we had!
